Roman Reigns’ WWE return was marked by a push right back to the top. His heel persona resembles a mafia boss now. His backstage influence grew as well and his storylines are treated with the utmost care right now. He also has demands.
During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed that Roman Reigns won’t go anywhere on the card except for first or last. It’s very interesting when he opens and closes out a show.
“You put the most important first or last. That’s the big argument right now with Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns will either go first or last. He won’t go anywhere else, that’s a shoot. He doesn’t want to go [anywhere] but first, because that’s okay or last, which is preferable because he’s the main event and he doesn’t want to go second or fourth or second from the top.”
Roman Reigns’ placement on SmackDown an WWE’s pay-per-views is quite interesting. This is also why he has so many main event matches racked up. He straight up refuses to work anywhere else on the card.
We will have to see how long Reigns can keep that up, but right not the Tribal Chief seems to be getting his way.
