One of the biggest problems many fans have with the WWE is Roman Reigns being the biggest babyface in the company. This is because, for the most part, he is welcomed by a chorus of boos every single time he walks down the ramp to the ring for a match.
Many members of the WWE universe believe strongly that the company can solve this problem and eventually have fans cheer for The Big Dog in the future is by turning him heel. Stone Cold Steve Austin is also one of these people.
The Texas Rattlesnake said on his podcast recently that he predicts Reigns would 'have his greatest run if he turns heel,' and he gets fired up about the possibilities whenever he thinks about it. The three-time world champion has now responded to the WWE legend's claim.
The Big Dog was asked by the Express what he thought about Stone Cold's claim that he would 'have his greatest run if he turns heel.'
Reigns said: "I think everybody has their opinions. Like ice cream, everybody has their flavor, everybody has their opinion. It's Stone Cold Steve Austin. He definitely knows the area and the territory that I'm in. He knows what it's like to pull the trigger and be a workhorse. So I think there's definitely a lot of truth in what he has to say and I value his opinion.
For Reigns to say 'there's definitely a lot of truth' in what Stone Cold says shows he's thought about a heel turn in the past himself, and it still could be something which is in the pipeline in the future.
So is he going to turn heel? The Big Dog said he wasn't sure.
"Is it going to happen? I can't guarantee that. It's one of those situations where you kind of got to take it week by week and just understand the role. I definitely think there is a lot of great truth to what he's thinking and his knowledge in the game. But Stone Cold is not my boss."
As for if he would like to turn heel, Reigns isn't sure about that either.
"Would I like to turn heel? I don't know. It's a weird question cause, aren't I already a heel? If I garnered that reaction, what's the point? If it's already happening, if I'm already being booed, why try and get booed?
"I think right now I'm in a cool situation and kind of a little bit different than anybody because the only person that's really been in my shoes before is (John) Cena. But Cena is Cena, you know. I'm nothing like him, I've never been like him.
"I think I'm in a good place to kind of do whatever I want to do with this character and not necessarily just be a heel or be a babyface. I feel like my character can be so much more than that."
