First, his return. That in itself was a grand event for the WWE Universe. Following that, he won The Universal Championship. Next, he turned heel and that too the Superstar at the receiving end of his heel-ish wrath was his cousin, Jey Uso.

Now, during a conversation with Peter Rosenberg, Roman Reigns spoke about whether he can walk away from wrestling with what he’s achieved till now. His answer? Yes, he can.

“With what I’ve showcased in the ThunderDome alone, I could walk away. On top of everything I’ve done and taking (into account) this last year of performances. Everything I’ve set out to do, I’ve done it or I’m in the middle of getting to that point of achievement.” 

Roman Reigns won’t walk away for a specific reason

While yes, undoubtedly, he’s acquired a lot within a brief span. Unfortunately, none of it has heavily involved the audience, rather the live audience.

He’s done all these great things during a time when fans were watching the events virtually. It robbed him of the opportunity to connect and engage fans during his segments and matches. Therefore, it’s natural The Tribal Chief wants to stay on until he can showcase his character to the live fans.

“The one thing we haven’t showcased is the relationship with the audience and the people who made it harder than it probably should have had to be. At the same time, through these hardships and struggles and pressure, comes a diamond.”

“I haven’t showcased it with the live crowd. There was the taste at WrestleMania when I stacked those fools, but I haven’t been able to tell that story and the way it’s affected me and transitioned my thought process and driven me to the man I’ve become today.” H/t Peter Rosenberg on Cheap Heat
