"This job and position has expanded so much with the growth of WWE. Just the role of a superstar in general. For me, I lead by example. That goes for everything. With the way you carry yourself, how you sell. Don't sweat the little stuff. We sell in the ring, but not outside of it, especially not backstage. I try to make everything look easy so people are like, 'Uce is doing it and knocking it out. It's a rough travel day, but Uce is sitting over there chilling.' Being able to handle everything and keeping a level head when times get tough and situations aren't ideal. There's gotta be a few different things you can do through experience," he said.

Later in the interview, Reigns was asked about what's next for him in WWE. After expressing his gratitude to get to perform for the fans, Reigns circled back to his role in the locker room.

"Continuing to payback the locker room and the company that has done so many wonders for me. I've been heavily invested in for years, so if there's a way to help younger talent and bring anybody up, we should always want to be doing that. Being able to create new superstars and push the product even further."

Reigns will be the leader of Team SmackDown when he teams with King Corbin, Shorty G, Mustafa Ali, and Braun Strowman in a five vs. five vs. five elimination bout at WWE Survivor Series.
