WWE World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns is one WWE Superstar in 2015 that kept the company going when nearly all top stars were down or away. His sojourn to stardom has had its own trials, ups and downs. At one time, he was a booing figure and no one regarded him much, it was as if the whole world was against him. And that nearly paralyzed his career and shoved him through the back door of shame and dishonor, rather than fame and praise which he enjoys today from nearly every Dick, Tom and Harry that can be called a WWE fan.

He also acknowledged that his family and crew were always those he considers precious; hence he considers them when making decisions.

On his previous issues in WWE, pari-passu the rejection from the WrestleMania crowd during his match against Brock Lesnar in the main event, Reigns told WWE.Com

“I stand on that performance. That was a fight out there and the crowd knew it. Regardless of how they felt about me when I walked in, they certainly felt a definite way when I left, and I think that’s respect. I think that’s what’s helped me along this full year’s process. They can see I come out every single night and I’m not playing about this big-fight thing. I do it different than anybody else, because I’m willing to bang heads every single night. I don’t think anybody else could have gone out there with Brock Lesnar and do what I did. I stand by that and I’m proud of it. My father and my mother were in the front row watching and they got to see their son go toe-to-toe with Brock Lesnar. Not many people can say that.”

On handling of rejections and negative reactions from the crowd, Reigns told WWE.COM

“It’s something I’ve had to teach myself over the past few years, because I am a person that cares. I do. I wouldn’t be in this business and do what we have to do and go through all the stuff we have to put up with if I didn’t care. Sometimes I have to pull myself back [and remind myself] the world is a big place. Don’t focus on the negativity. Focus on the positivity and the people that want you to do well, then, do it for them and for yourself. Sometimes I do things for myself; sometimes I do things for my family; sometimes I do things for my friends. There’s a great system where I’m not doing this just for one dream, I’m doing this for a bunch of people’s dreams. I have a great crew and a great family that loves me.”

On his WWE TLC encounter where he angrily smashed Triple H after losing the match to Sheamus. WWE.COM asked Reigns if he felt like a hero watching the match later at home.

REIGNS said: I haven’t been able to watch much of the stuff back I’ve done in the past few weeks. But one thing I notice is anytime me and H are in the ring together, there’s always that buzz. You can feel it, there’s a tingle in the air. Regardless, when you have that buzz, it’s going to get to the physicality, so that’s how it’s got to go down.
