WWE celebrity Roman Reigns admits he’s been silent on several occasions and could clearly see while the camera turned.
“I’ve blanked a few times,” Reigns said in an interview with Logan Paul’s “Impaulsive” talk show. “I probably blanked a couple of weeks ago. But when you get to a certain point, you just roll through it.”
Reigns was reminded of a promo promo during his feud with John Cena where he blanked.Reigns admits, “Yeah, that was one of them,” adding that the stumble was a valuable lesson.
“I think just being in that position and going through that experience made me better,” he said. “I don’t think it was anything like John specifically … because I take from everybody I’ve worked with, everyone I’ve competed with.
I always try to take something that I learned from them. Like, if you’re an offensive coordinator I’m working under you as a quarterback coach or something, and it’s like, ‘Man, that offense was good. I’m taking everything that I liked from it, then I’m gonna add a little something to my own playbook, and then now I’ve got my own formula here.'”
On the other side of blanking, he has been “ad-libbing”, particularly when responding to a specific taunt from people in the audience.
“With me, this comes back to experience and just like having the time in,” he said. “If you’re going to ad-lib, it’s perfect, it’s good. You want to ad-lib because it’s a live performance. But sometimes an ad-lib takes your eye off the ball. So now you go, ‘Let’s get back on track.'”
