Roman Reigns addressed the WWE Universe

Since returning from Covid, Reigns is performing in such house shoes, and during the one in Glen Falls, New York, Reigns broke character as he addressed the crowd, and talked about how this pandemic affected and is still affecting the people.

In the end, the reigning WWE Universal champion told everyone to take care of themselves and thanked the WWE Universe for attending the show.

“I’d like to take this time to thank you guys for coming out. We all know what’s going on with this pandemic. I just want you all to stay safe. I want you to protect yourselves so that we can see you all next time. Also, goodnight and thank you.”

This is the reason why certain wrestlers have always preferred live house shows rather than TV shows. This is because, during the house shows, they do not have to abide by any script, unlike on the TV shows.

This also seems like this is the first time Roman Reigns broke the character inside the ring ever since turning heel in 2020.

However, the drama between the trio is yet to settle. But a recent segment on last week’s Friday Night SmackDown, Paul Heyman said to Lesnar that he cannot talk to Roman Reigns in a certain way.
