Roman Reigns defeated The Miz to win the Intercontinental championship on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. He made sure to thank his family in an interview after the show but also said he would be breaking out a hugely popular gimmick now that he’s champion:
"Really, I just want to take this time to thank all my supporters, all my loved ones, my mom, my dad, my family, my wife, all my kids, just being there, being my support system, because without this team, this great team I have, I would never have these opportunities. So I just want to say 'thank you.' It's just going to keep going, baby, we ain't stopping here. Open challenge coming in soon. Anybody can get it. Yessir!"
Reigns, now a Grand Slam champion, continues to do it all for WWE. The Miz was a great champion, sure, but Reigns tearing the house down with great title matches week after week a la John Cena’s US title open challenge sounds like a hell of a sports entertainment time to me.
