Roman Reigns Fan Q&A From Comic Con, Takes Shot At CM Punk

Roman Reigns is making some news for a rare fan Q&A he participated in over the weekend at Comic Con in Philadelphia. One comment in particular is creating a buzz in which Reigns shoots down a past claim about who created the Shield.

Reigns took part in a fun Fan Q&A at Comic Con. Before I go further I think Reign’s critics need to watch this to see a side of Reigns they rarely see on television. He is personable, engaging, witty, and seemed like he had a real great time being there. It was refreshing to see this side of Reigns as opposed to the guy created by WWE on Monday nights. The stripped down version of Reigns sans scripts appears to have a lot more potential than the one we are accustomed to seeing.

Reigns talked a bunch of topics but one that is receiving some attention is a comment he made about the success of the Shield. Reigns took a shot at CM Punk, who on a podcast last year claimed that the Shield was his idea.

So, and this, I don’t know, this will probably blow some people’s minds and then some people will be like ‘oh, you’re full of s***’ but I don’t f***ing care either way: The Shield was my idea. What happened was, at the time the head writer was Eric Pankowski. He called me up one day and he was like ‘okay, uh, nobody knows you’re going to turn heel but we want to stick a stable with you.

I’m willing to do the heel stable thing but why don’t we pick three guys from FCW that are ready instead of using two guys, you know what I mean? They would just be treading water. Who cares? How many times are these guys going to turn?

“The idea was [WWE] were supposed to be my group. Things f***ing change. They like to take other people’s ideas, make it their own idea, and then tout how awesome they are.

Reigns told the fans at Comic Con the only thing Punk created was the Pepsi tattoo on his shoulder. This is just another instance where another one of Punk’s former colleagues has discredited an account or claim Punk made in his Colt Cabana podcast interview. So keep in mind that while what Punk said made him seem like a real cool outlaw, how much of it is true and how much of it is exaggerated will always be up for debate.
