– We noted earlier this week that there’s a feeling within WWE that the scripted promos for Roman Reigns have put him in “quicksand” and aren’t helping him at all.
After comparing himself to Superman on RAW, Reigns delivered another cartoon-inspired promo on SmackDown while speaking face-to-face with Seth Rollins. Taking a line from Looney Tunes character Sylvester, Reigns said, “Sufferin’ succotash.”
Writing to a fan on Twitter, Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter mentioned that Reigns’ promos are being scripted by Vince McMahon. He wrote:
“Vince is writing his promos. Vince is really out of touch. I hate to say it but the promos speak for themselves.”
