Roman Reigns wouldn't fist bump Seth Rollins. Can you believe that?
Last week on SmackDown, it was revealed that Roman Reigns' next challenger for the Universal Title would be his former Shield brother, Seth Rollins. The two men, along with Dean Ambrose (now Jon Moxley) debuted together at Survivor Series 2012 and remained a dominant force in WWE until Rollins turned on his friends in June 2014.
Reigns and Rollins met face-to-face in the main event segment of SmackDown on January 14, 2022, to discuss their upcoming match at the Royal Rumble. The interaction started friendly, with Rollins acknowledging Roman's accomplishments and even asking to do The Shield's fist-bump for old-times sake, but Reigns declined, saying that he is above that now.
Roman went on to say that he is in God mode at the moment, and wouldn't have picked Seth as his opponent. Not only that, but he says he would have picked Seth's wife, Becky Lynch, before Seth if he wanted to face the biggest star possible. Seth, visibly upset, reminded Roman that he was making waves in the wrestling world while Reigns was "riding the pine" in the CFL. He also said that he made him what he is in WWE and can just as easily destroy him.
The Usos then attempted to attack Seth but he was able to elude them and escape unscathed.
