Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho appeared on his YouTube channel for his weekly live Saturday Night Special stream to answer various questions from fans. At one point “Le Champion” was asked about Roman Reigns’ recent heel turn and alliance with Paul Heyman, which quickly resulted in him winning the WWE Universal Championship. Jericho loved the idea, stating that it would elevate Reigns to a level of stardom he’d never seen before.

“I love the Roman Reigns heel turn, I love the pairing of Roman and Paul Heyman, I think it’s great. Once again, you know that I have said this for years that Roman is gonna be even bigger than he has been. Just let him be himself and he’s gonna be an even bigger star,” Jericho said. -credit: comicbook.com

 

talkSPORT spoke to Jericho ahead of AEW’s All Out pay-per-view and we asked the Demo God what he thought of the Big Dog’s change in character.
“I’m a huge fan of Roman Reigns,” he declared. “I think as a heel he’s going to be leaps and bounds better than as a babyface which will then allow him to become a hot babyface, which will be leaps and bounds over him being a heel.

“I love Joe. He’s a great worker. I loved working with him. I probably worked with him 40 times in 2016 and 2017. We did house shows all around the world and he’s got a great personality. “If you would just let Roman Reigns be himself, he’ll get over even more so. He’s just a cool guy.” -credit talksport.com

“Roman should have turned heel years ago. I Think he will be a bigger babyface AFTER his heel run. Roman is as solid of a franchise talent as anyone. He’s the man – Kurt Angle – courtesy of wrestlingheadlines.com

Baron Corbin

ComicBook.com recently had the chance to speak with WWE Superstar Baron Corbin, and he broke down his response to Reigns’ new outlook and what he’s hoping to accomplish now that this new version of Reigns has made himself known.

As Corbin broke it down, “I think it’s refreshing. I think [Reigns] needed to evolve for himself. I think he wanted to evolve and I think he sees that he can bring a new attitude and a new game to SmackDown…the more incredible stars we have, the better we are as a whole. And I think he’s found something in Paul Heyman that will benefit him and we all know what Paul Heyman did with Brock Lesnar. I think he can do the same with Roman Reigns. So it’s something special right now. He’s firing on all cylinders. He took a few months off and we’ll see where he’s at physically when he gets tested in a long championship match. He took a shortcut, I can’t hate him for that, taking that shortcut to get that universal championship at Payback.”

As for his “shortcut,” Corbin has this to say about Reigns getting the Universal Championship so soon, “[He] saw an opportunity and that’s what Paul Heyman brings to the table for him is finding those opportunities and making the most of them.” But don’t count out Corbin just yet as he’s waiting for his turn, “[We’re] going to see if the new attitude’s for real or if it’s just a show. We’re going to put him to the test, we’re going to put him through the ringer…” Corbin even got into how his history with Reigns will inform what the two of them get into next, “…I have history, we beat each other all the way around the Houston Astros baseball stadium. And we’ve had all kinds of foreign objects in our battles and I kind of look forward in a twisted way to see what he brings to the table with this new attitude, what kind of competition he’s going to bring into that ring when that bell rings. So it’s exciting, it’s refreshing and I think people are really going to kind of be into what he’s doing.” – credit: comicbook.com

Orlando, Florida – Amway Center

Universal Champion Roman Reigns makes his way to the ring with his special counsel Paul Heyman.

Paul says he has been authorized to enlighten you on some history.  Two weeks ago, we let the secret out of the bag and told everyone what only the two of them know.  Two days later, Roman Reigns wrecked everyone and he left as the Universal Champion.  Last Friday, your tribal chief said to tell you everything.  He laid all of his cards on the table and on that same night, his bloodline and family, Jey Uso stepped up.  Not only did Jey emerge as the only benefactor of a Fatal Four Way, he dethroned a king, he braved a Brogue, and he solved a Riddle to become the number one contender for the Universal Championship.  Paul says he has been given the opportunity to introduce that number one contender.  He may be his cousin, but he should be his blood brother . . .Jey Uso.

Jey makes his way to the ring.

Jey says Paul goes way back with his family so he has some love for him.  Jey thanks Paul because he gets to compete against his blood for the Universal Championship.

Paul apologizes for interrupting.  Paul says all of the appreciation should go to your cousin.  This was Roman’s idea when Big E went down.  Paul says he did what your tribal chief wanted.

Roman says Jey doesn’t have to thank him because they are blood.  Years, we have thought about this.  Roman says he is proud of Jey.  The whole family is proud of you.  You earned this and you are going to be in the main event.  You are going to take a huge payday home.  This is your moment.  At Clash of Champions, it won’t be your moment.  Like when we were kids, I am going to whoop your ass.  This needs to stay on my shoulder for our family to be where it is.  After I whoop your ass,then  it will all be love.

Orlando, Florida – Amway Center

– We go right to the ring and the music hits as new WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns makes his way out with Paul Heyman right behind him. The boos get louder as Reigns stands on the stage. He raises the title in the air and stares straight ahead. Reigns looks around some before the pyro explodes on the stage. Heyman is all business as they march to the ring while Greg Hamilton does the introductions.

Reigns hits the ring and stands in the middle. He raises the title again as more fireworks explode behind him. Heyman takes the mic and says just when we thought Heyman was out, Reigns pulled him back in. Heyman tells fans not to make a fool out of themselves for corrupting Reigns because he can assure us that it’s Reigns corrupting him. Why would this happen? Because Heyman was gone. Tossed aside, thrown into the shark-infested ocean of obscurity, only to be rescued, saved and pulled onto The Island of Relevancy, by this man. Because they did the same damn thing to Reigns that they did to Heyman.

Heyman asks what happened to the thank yous and the appreciation, through all the executive decisions to life threatening illnesses, Reigns delivered, and over-delivered. Nobody offered to say thank you or offer genuine appreciation, Heyman says. He says Reigns’ “little bit of time off” was questioned, and what did they do with his title? Heyman goes on about how a “monster” or a “fiend” aren’t meant to be champions. He says Roman’s reign as your champion has only been defined by what WWE purports itself to be built on – family, tradition, legacy, the responsibility of being a champion and the accountability of owning one’s action as your champion. And that is who Heyman says this champion is. He brings up how RAW had a Triple Threat to determine the Clash of Champions opponent for WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. Heyman points at Reigns and says this champion will be bigger, badder, more sensational and more spectacular, than everyone else that has come before him. While they have the Triple Threat on RAW, we will have a Fatal 4 Way on SmackDown tonight. The winner will become the sacrificial lamb of The Big Dog at Clash of Champions. Heyman says the names of the 4 competitors don’t deserve to come out of his mouth of Reigns’ mouth, so he will leave it to Anderson Cooper (Cole) and Carmella’s latest boyfriend (Graves). Heyman goes on and says he serves a special counsel to the tribal chief – your reigning, defending, undisputed, Universal Heavyweight Champion of Reigns. Read more

 In honor of National Blood Cancer Awareness Month, Stacy Sager, President of the SagerStrong Foundation, had the honor of sitting down and speaking with WWE Universal Champion — Joe Anoa’i (aka -“Roman Reigns”) to talk with him about how he stayed tough in the face of cancer and fought through his second bout / CML diagnosis and treatment in 2019.

Before becoming a WWE Superstar, Joe Anoa’i was a college student at Georgia Tech in Atlanta, GA, where he was a rising football star with big plans to make it in the NFL. This is where our conversation begins.

Stacy: Take us back to your first cancer diagnosis – what were your signs and symptoms — how did you know something was wrong?
Joe: This was right in the process of me entering the NFL draft and hoping to be picked up by a team and I was just finishing up at Georgia Tech. I was 21 and just a young man. The only thing I had ever dreamed of was football and playing in the NFL. Since I was seven years old; that was the goal — to be somewhat of a sports star, but to be in the NFL. I did not get drafted, but I did sign a free-agent deal with the Minnesota Vikings and just to kind of put it in a nutshell, athletics from the beginning, has always kind of saved my life. Having that opportunity to go to rookie camp up in Minneapolis before you go in to practice or you sign your contract, you have to go through a full physical and it’s the NFL, so they put you through a very detailed physical and also bloodwork. That is the portion, which saved my life being that it is leukemia and blood cancer, just getting that CBC was the first detailed hint that something was going on with me. We did that all the morning before practice — went to meetings, went about the day, went to practice, and had a really good practice, which is kind of irrelevant, but that’s one of the little details I hold on to. I had a really good practice that day.

So, we’re following up at meetings and watching films of that practice and as soon as I walk out of the meeting room, two of the trainers are there to pull me off to the side to tell me that there is going on with my blood work and they needed to take me back to the clinic to do a second round to make sure it wasn’t a false reading or make sure nothing serious was going on. We went back and did the blood work and the results were pretty much the same. I had 70,000 white blood cells and at the time that did not mean anything to me — I had no clue what was going on. Like I said, I was tunnel vision on being part of the NFL and being a part of that Vikings team. And from there, the team made contacts for me, to get me home and to get to me an oncologist. And from that moment on, I relied on my mom and my family to guide me through it. Looking back at it now I was just in shock; being so young and not any true adversity at that point in my life and everything kind of went smoothly for me. I was a young athlete. I did well in school. I was fairly popular and I had a lot of friends in high school, so I had nothing “punch me in the mouth” so to speak, like

that, so this was something that really put me on my butt. It’s funny because, with my wrestling career, we started out as a group called “The Shield” and we wear tactical vests, it’s like a SWAT team looking mentality, and a lot of times they have those hooks on the back to where if something happens your teammate can kind of drag you through. At that time my Mom was my teammate, she kind of grabbed me by that strap and dragged me through the process and made sure everything was ok, because I don’t think I was truly prepared at that point to soak it in and absorb it.

The fact that it took Reigns only 127 days from the time of his cancer announcement to his return to the ring is a miracle. When Reigns was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 22, the symptoms were foreign, but this time he was aware that the red flags were there, and they were hard to ignore. According to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, leukemia begins in a cell in the bone marrow and, over time, the infected cells can suppress the production of normal cells. A healthy adult should have a white blood cell count of between 4,000 and 11,000. In Roman’s case, a white blood cell count well over 100,000 caused alarm. Through further examination, doctors discovered an enlarged spleen and knew exactly what was happening.

Stacy: What was it like getting back into the ring after your second diagnosis and sharing the news with your fans?
Joe: I have to start out by saying, we men are stubborn beasts and can be hardheaded animals. It was nerve wracking to be honest, to be able to share that information, as you know very well, with the world especially now a days, with the connectivity of social media and just how potent the internet can be in a very good and bad way sometimes, especially with the wrestling community and sports entertainment; fans are very passionate and very vocal about what’s good and bad. So, my main thing was to disarm them and to make them aware that this was not storyline. This was not entertainment, this was not WWE, this was not a role, and to introduce them to Joe Anoa’i for the first time. That was very scary at the time, but as soon as two, three, four, maybe five minutes in, to be able to see those faces live and to see those people in the crowd. It is tough because they are there for an entertainment show; they are there to escape and to enjoy themselves and I am dropping this bomb on them so to speak. But, for them not to react in a harsh way, to be so gentle with me, to allow me to share what was going on with me, not the character, but the man behind the character, and let them know about my struggle and the situation, that island that you were talking about, that isolation is very real. Twenty minutes before I went out there, I felt like I was on an island all by myself, even with my co-workers surrounding me and giving me love and support. They were still going to be able to do their job tomorrow, and the next day, and the next day, but my future was uncertain. I did not know what I was going to do, I knew that I was going to get on a plane and go back home and I would figure it out from there. But, as soon as I felt that love from the crowd and the support it literally felt like a security blanket wrapped around me all in that one moment. I knew that it was going to be a different story this time around and from there it was like a snow effect, the momentum just really set in because especially for me and my character, I can be a bit polarizing where the crowd can go back and forth with me and we can experience a bunch of different emotions while I’m out there in the arena. Once I got back and was able to check out some of the social media, whether it was Twitter or Instagram or Facebook, I was really able to feel that love and support from not only the just the 10,000 or so people in the arena, but everybody around the whole, the whole WWE universe and then it really felt like it stretched out even further than WWE and sports entertainment. It felt like people from all walks of life, all different forms of entertainment – just people who had no clue who I was still sending me best wishes and get well soon wishes and the support that I needed to heal.
