Roman Reigns recently spoke to Sports Illustrated about former tag partner, Seth Rollins and his ascension to the top of WWE.

“The Kingslayer” has always been outspoken and in recent months, it’s gotten him in hot water with fans. Always the protector, Roman Reigns defended Rollins’ brashness and endorses him as the top guy in WWE.

“I was so proud of him and what he did at SummerSlam against Brock Lesnar. He obviously had one of those weeks where the Twitter machine and the Internet went nuts on him, but he bounced back and answered the call.

“Is he passionate? God, yes. Is he blunt? Of course, that’s why I love him. He doesn’t sugarcoat, he’s very honest, and he is passionate, and he was born for professional wrestling.”

Speaking of being in the top star in WWE, that is a position that Roman Reigns knows all about. Roman opens up about what it’s like to be in the top spot in WWE saying that it’s a lot harder than some would think.

“There is a lot to being the face of WWE. It’s not only about being in the ring. It’s about how you represent, and that is a 24-7, 365 job. You’ve got to be on all the time for 52 weeks a year. But I’m telling you now, my brother is legit.”

Perhaps the former Shield brethren will be reunited following the upcoming draft that starts this Friday.
