Roman Reigns has been one of the most polarizing figures in WWE over the last few years, and he’s been the receiving end of some very loud boos.
The Big Dog had to take some time off following his leukemia announcement last year, but he was able to return earlier this year.
Roman has been receiving a mostly positive reaction from the fans since he returned, but he told SPORT1 that it doesn’t matter to him if they decide to boo.
“Nah, I don’t care what they do in this case. They paid their money – their hard-earned money – to get to the show. They can do what they wanna do. Everybody’s situation is different, we enjoy every way our fans are expressing themselves. As long as you make noise, it doesn’t matter to me if it’s cheers or boos. The last thing I want is silence, fans sitting on their hands – ‘anyone want some popcorn?’: That’s bad for a performer. I’ve always had the ability to rub people one way or the other. As long as that continues – heavy cheers, polarizing reaction, heavy boos: I’m all for it.”
Roman Reigns is not currently part of the SummerSlam card as of this writing, but it’s expected that his mystery attacker will be revealed, and a SummerSlam match will be set up tonight on SmackDown.
