No one talks smack better than a professional wrestler. It’s really just part of the gig.
WWE Superstar Roman Reigns may in fact be king of banter. The former college football player out of Georgia Tech was an All-ACC defensive lineman. Equipped with a solid knowledge of the gridiron, Reigns recently selected his fantasy football team made up entirely of WWE all-stars.
Reigns is set to square off against Randy Orton at SummerSlam in Los Angeles on Sunday, so to add a little fuel to the fire, Reigns selected Orton as his team’s water boy. “Randy Orton, he’s my water boy. He gets the towels,” Reigns said.
But Reigns was not done dishing out the insults with just Orton. He also went after his former Shield teammate Seth Rollins, who recently turned heel (basically turning heel is like going to the dark side in professional wrestling terms) and betrayed both Reigns and his former best buddy Dean Ambrose. By omitting Rollins from his team, Reigns was clearly making a statement, “You can’t trust him. He’d probably send our game plan to the other team.”
