The Big Show had a recent interview with Digital Spy to promote the upcoming WWE UK tour in November. Big Show explained it frustrates him that fans are giving Reigns a hard time and defended Reigns against those who believe that he shouldn’t be pushed.
“It does frustrate me when they start giving guys grief. ‘Roman Reigns shouldn’t get a push and THIS guy should get a push’. Well, the reason that so-and-so’s not getting a push is because he can’t sell tickets. 35,000 smart fans around the world like this guy… that’s fine. But the other millions around the world aren’t into that guy yet. Roman works the best when he’s got somebody bigger to attack him,” he said. “I thought his stuff he did with Brock was amazing at Mania. I think Roman has a lot of all the right pieces to make everything work. I just think it’s our society nowadays to pick on the guy that’s good-looking, that’s athletic, that’s actually getting a break. But let’s give credit where credit’s due. The kid’s a hard-working kid, he’s a hell of an athlete, he’s got a great look and in the ring his timing’s good. That was one of the things that he worked well with me because matches with me are really simple: If you treat me like a giant and you sell, I make your life easy.”
