Roman Reigns ‘Wasn’t Crazy About’ Using His Daughter In WWE Storyline With Bray Wyatt

Roman Reigns

Speaking on The Sam Roberts Wrestling Podcast, Roman Reigns talked about making his professional wrestling dreams come true and whether he was upset by his daughter Joelle, being involved in his feud with Bray Wyatt.

Although Reigns has accomplished many of his goals in the professional wrestling business already, they have not come about the way he envisioned they would. The WWE Superstar is hopeful that he can still have the chance to see his dreams come to life the way he imagined they would.

“I’ve been so fortunate to do so many incredible things in such a short time. Like, I came into this business with a plan to have a great career and do certain things, and bucket list stuff, and goals to check off. I didn’t think I’d do the stuff I’ve done thus far as quickly, and, I mean, not everybody is a religious person, [but] to me, that’s God. But it wasn’t even perfect. It was the best stuff ever to happen to me, but it still wasn’t exactly like I pictured it. So, God willing, I still have an opportunity to, like you said, make it how I pictured it.”

Reigns admitted that he was not pleased about having his daughter involved in his storyline with Wyatt; however, he believes WWE did not go over the line. Reigns stated that he went along with the angle because the photograph of his daughter that was used on WWE television came from his Ad Council Fatherhood public service announcement, rather than being a private family photograph.

“[The picture] wasn’t something that came from my home or private, like, me and [Joelle] selfie or something like that. It was a promotional thing that we did. It’s in the malls. You can probably see it on my Twitter, so that’s why I was okay with that.” Reigns continued, “we didn’t touch on it much after. It was something to spark, but too much is too much and I thought we were able to push a line and stay there and not go too far and we were able to go back towards the wrestling and the talent and us telling our individual competition story [as] opposed to getting too deep into that type of real life situation.”
