Speaking with Joseph Staszewski of The New York Post, Reigns called the arrest “not a great light to be shining” on his family or the company. He also said that while he loves his family but he does not “condone that kind of be behavior or decision-making.”
“We’re all human, we’re all cynics, we all make mistakes. Instead of what some people might feel you should give up on somebody or maybe turn your back on that type of behavior, that’s one way to do it. But I don’t think that’s the way to push through and gain experience or make progressive movements of becoming a better man or a better human.
“So for me, it was diving into it with great attention, great love and very thorough communication to make sure my family is continually bettering themselves and putting themselves in a position to make better decisions.”
Roman Reigns will defend his Universal Championship against John Cena in the main event of SummerSlam. The Usos will also defend their SmackDown Tag Team Championships against the father-son tag team of Rey and Dominik Mysterio.
