WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns showed his softer side after a recent live event, as he acknowledged the fans in a place near and dear to his heart.

Reigns recently teamed with his cousins, the SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos in a six-man tag team match in The Tribal Chief’s hometown of Pensacola, Florida.

A united Bloodline saw off the challenge of Drew McIntyre, Kofi Kingston, and Xavier Woods but after the match, Roman Reigns dropped his villainous facade as he addressed his hometown crowd, with a fan sharing the video of his promo online:

“Man, it’s good to be home! You guys know the travel schedule. We’re all over the world all the time. Obviously, we’re going through this pandemic, we’ve been fighting through lockdowns and quarantines. And we’re still here, you know? All day I’ve been thinking, like, what do I say? How do I express how I really feel? How do I keep this concise and not crazy long and have a good message? And, I don’t have to say anything.”

“Just like – a massive amount of gratitude. In fact, I think we talked about this on Friday night on FOX’s SmackDown, but man I feel blessed. I feel blessed to be able to do what I want with the people that I love, in front of the people, people. Our journey is our journey. We did it our way and you know – it is what it is. But I challenge everybody here to follow your journey and whatever your destination is.”

“I run into New Yorkers, people from L.A. and they’re like ‘where you from?’ and I say I’m from a small little beach town. Pensacola is the most beautiful built … best keep secret in the whole world. It really is! The Tribal Chief ain’t scared to go on vacation, you know what I mean?”

“I’ve been to a lot of different beaches, I’ve been to a lot of different small towns. And this one, I’m not just being biased, this is the best one. So I challenge all the young ones here – let it go. Knock out your course, follow the journey no matter what the adversity.Just like all of you should feel, this is MY city! This is MY little beach town! And I will never say this anywhere else in the world. I don’t care if I go to Rome, Paris, London, New York…Pensacola, we acknowledge YOU!”

WWE has confirmed that Roman Reigns will indeed be heading to Paris and London in the next few weeks as he has been announced for the company’s traditional post-WrestleMania European tour for the first time in three years.
