WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns swapped the squared circle for MTV last night, as The Big Dog joined Little Mix to virtually present an award at the MTV EMAs!
The Tribal Chief presented the Best Pop Award – something that wouldn’t appear too out of place at WWE’s Slammy Awards – at the 2020 MTV European Music Awards. Nominees included BTS, Dua Lipa, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga and the hosts for the evening – Little Mix.
“You might be wondering why a WWE Universal Champion is presenting an award for pop music. Well, I’m six-foot-three with arms like these, and I can throw a man clean out of the ring. So, who the heck’s going to stop me? Also, I really love pop music. So here are the nominees.”

WWE’s Universal Champion would present the award to the winners – Little Mix – before praising the band for their hard work and seemingly hinting that he may indeed be a ‘Mixer’ himself when he isn’t mixing it up in the ring!
The Tribal Chief appeared to present the award from backstage at the SmackDown set, with a set of ropes behind him similar to those where backstage interviews currently take place in the ThunderDome. Reigns was also representing the WWE Universe on the virtual red carpet ahead of the EMAs.
