John Moxley shares his thoughts on Roman Reigns’ heel turn. The two along with Seth Rollins were part of the Shield in the WWE.
Jon Moxley rose to fame as Dean Ambrose in the WWE alongside Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins. The trio were part of a faction called the Shield. They called themselves the hounds of justice and tore down other superstars and legends every week.
Their popularity with the fans eventually saw them abandon the dark side and become faces. Following their eventual split, both Ambrose and Rollins would become heels at least once again. Roman however, was stubbornly kept as a face despite receiving the most boos every night he was on.
The negative reaction has mostly died out in the last year and more. Many continued to clamour for a change in the content of his character. Ironically enough, when the WWE can actually control the cheers and boos is when they finally pulled the trigger on his heel turn.

Reigns adopted a much more aggressive personality upon his return. Many speculated if he was a heel. Their suspicions were finally confirmed when Reigns was seen next to Heyman on the following episode of WWE SmackDown.
“The concept of him and Paul Heyman – that was very cool to me,” Moxley told The Sun. “I think that’s gonna work out really good. All my friends there (WWE) I wanna turn the TV on and I wanna see them kicking ass and doing great.”
Reigns would quickly recapture the Universal Championship, winning it in his first match since returning to become the face of SmackDown. Moxley, like his friend has also reinvented himself in the AEW. He won the AEW World Title earlier this year and has held on to it for over seven months now.
