WWE Grand Slam Champions Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins enjoy a strong brotherhood in and out of the ring. The on-screen characters of both men have been quite polarizing in recent years but that hasn’t prevented WWE from simultaneously pushing them as the face of the company.
Reigns is a cancer survivor and WWE is going easy on him; The Big Dog has returned to a full-time schedule but is yet to put pedal to the metal.
In the meantime, WWE has shown utmost faith in Rollins by crowning him Universal Champion, pushing him as the top male Superstar and capitalizing on every opportunity to establish him as a bigger babyface.
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Reigns talked about his beloved Shield brother Rollins’ image as the face of WWE.
“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.”
At Hell In A Cell, babyface Seth was booed after his title defence against “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt ended in a no contest. The masked Superstar is currently the biggest babyface in WWE and that may indeed throw some heel shade on The Beastslayer.
“Seth loves the WWE. That’s why some people misread some of the things he says or the ways he delivers it, but he does mean well. He’s a workhorse. Yeah, he’s a little live at the mouth sometimes, but he’s got a heart of gold, trust me.”
Rollins recently deactivated his Twitter account after battling fans online who were supportive of the “AEW” and “refund” chants that embraced the arena at Hell In A Cell.
“Whether he’s on Raw or SmackDown, the WWE is in good hands with him as champion.”
