Roman Reigns was interviewed for CBS's In This Corner podcast and spoke about many subjects, including his recent program with John Cena. He also touched on his reaction to seeing Vince McMahon take a shoot headbutt from Kevin Owens on SmackDown two weeks ago.
"I think it's one of those situations where it's a leading by example. When you see the CEO, your boss, out there getting shoot headbutted and thrown around at his age, it comes back to that word 'passion' that we talked about. You don't have to. Let's be honest, does he really have to be out there doing that stuff? And I've been in there and done some physicality with him, but never just a straight (headbutt). You can watch that back. There is no sports entertainment in there. Do you know what I mean? There was nothing pulled. There's no way to disguise that."
Roman worked with Owens extensively in late 2016, so he has a unique perspective on not only K.O., but also what it means to be trusted enough to get physical with the chairman of the board, which Roman did two years ago.
"Kevin, K.O.'s good, he's a really good wrestler, but if he can somehow work that, I've got to sit him down and talk to him. I just think it kind of sets the tone and it makes everybody motivated because I've been out there with the boss. K.O.'s been out there with the boss. People want to be out there with him, man. It says something. It elevates you and that's what it's all about, riding this escalator and generally growing, and progressing, and seeing your star rise. And sometimes, the boss has to come out there and help that situation."
