WWE has been favoring Roman Reigns in every way possible for a very long time. The absentee champion has held the WWE title for more than 1200 days already. But, it turns out that The Tribal Chief has more than just no-show and plot armor privileges.

Former UFC fighter Matt Riddle recently revealed another special treatment received by Roman Reigns in WWE. The ex-WWE wrestler mentioned the unpredictable nature of things that happen due to several last-minute alterations. But, apparently, The Head of the Table is immune to this.

Matt Riddle was invited for an interview on the latest episode of the Chris Van Vliet Podcast.

Talking about how he was kept out of the loop on things when it came to creative, Riddle said, “I have no idea You know, I’ll just do my job… I mean, I guess like if you’re Roman or somebody they probably give you more of a heads up. Well, like if you’re me, yeah.” This is a big revelation from the former employee as it indicates just how much extra power Roman Reigns holds within WWE.
