Roman Reigns wants smart WWE fans to think of the children

New, comments

From his interview with Digital Spy when asked if "smart fans" of WWE sometimes ruin it both for themselves and for other people:

"It's tough to say. The way I look at it is, yeah, I hope they're having fun. Whatever chant you wanna start or whatever you're doing out there, as long as you're having a good time, as long as you're taking advantage of the time that you have being at the show. I do like to stress... a lot of these smarter fans, a lot of them are my age. They're right in my age group, and I'm a father. I have a daughter who enjoys the show. So I try and think about that. Think about when you were a kid and think about when you were a young fan. Think about what's going to make the show better, because we are a PG product. We are targeting families - little boys and girls - we're trying to change lives, we're trying to be role models. I think the WWE Universe has to remember that as well. Our fans have to remember that y'all are very influential as well. Y'all are on TV too. So remember - think about the kids, think about what kind of example you're setting. Think about not only your experience, but everybody else's. That's just something I think about. But at the end of the day, the fans pay their hard-earned money, it's their choice and only their choice to make."

That's certainly an interesting new approach to dealing with older smart fans who attend shows. While John Cena has turned into a robot who accepts cheers and boos simply as sound and therefore desirable, Reigns is toeing that line while dipping over it with quite the request.

Think of the children, smarks.
