Roman Reigns: I don't think the fans have turned on me

In an interview with Ring Rust Radio, which was conducted before WrestleMania 32 and his appearance on Raw the next night as WWE world heavyweight champion, Roman Reigns was asked about WWE legends thinking he should turn on the fans and if he has considered it.

His response (via Wrestle Zone) might be telling:

"You know, I don't look at it as turning on the fans, because I don't think they have turned on me. I still have a really large fan base and supporters that dig what I do. They love my matches and are entertained by my segments. For me, I think I need to stick with what I have been doing. We live in a world where everybody has an opinion and an opportunity to voice their opinions so it becomes a very critical era that we live in. For me, I know who I am, where I want to go, so I am just going to stick to my guns and keep doing what I am doing. It's making for a loud reaction and that's all that matters."

His performance on Raw this week was brilliant in that he played up the boos he was getting from that particular crowd while also maintaining his status as the babyface his adoring fans can continue to love. Essentially, he played both sides, something the other top babyface in the promotion, John Cena, has been doing for years.

From the sounds of it, we shouldn't expect anything to change on that front, at least not anytime soon.
