The Universal Champion went solo in 2015. As WWE decided to push him to be a marquee player for the company, they gave him main event status and sent him to various talk shows for mainstream media attention.

Roman revealed the tale of the ‘B***cheek Bandit.’ The woman groped Roman in one of the shows while he was making his way to the ring. Although there was security, the fan sneaked in.

Interestingly, WWE did not kick out the woman. Roman ended the segment by urging his female fans to let him do his job. You can check the clip below –

However, standing today, the woman is bound to be banished. WWE has come forward with strict guidelines that don’t tolerate any kind of harassment and imposes lifetime bans on fans who try to get away with such behavior.

Roman Reigns is dominating WWE right now

Back in the mid-2010s, WWE was vehemently trying to portray Roman Reigns as a face. He had already shown his credibility as a heel as part of the SHIELD, and the fans wanted the heel, Roman.

However, fans’ wishes did not come true for a long time, and ‘The Big Dog’ quickly became one of the most despised characters in WWE. But everything changed in 2020.

First, Roman pulled out from WrestleMania 36 in the wake of the pandemic. He disappeared for almost six months before returning to SummerSlam.

He attacked the new Universal Champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman after their main event match for the title.

He further solidified his heel turn (for the first time since 2014) after aligning himself with Paul Heyman. Roman challenged Bray for the title at Payback and won the title for the second time in his career.

Now going by the moniker of ‘Tribal Chief,’ Reigns is enjoying a dominant heel run. He remains undefeated since Payback. In his last match, he decimated Rey Mysterio in a Hell in a Cell match on WWE SmackDown.
