Roman Reigns was recently a guest on Chris Jericho's podcast in which he said he doesn’t see the point in turning heel:
“Yeah, as long as they’re coming, as long as they’re making noise, have fun, man. Boo the s–t out of me. Like, if it’s making you cooler with this dude and that dude next to you and Roman Reignsy’all are having a great night, please, say all you want to me. I’m a grown man. You’re not going to hurt my feelings. Do you know what I mean? My wife is not going to think any differently of me. The thing is, if I turn heel, what am I? Am I just going to, like, become a chick [magnet character] like, just like everything that [has] been done or why not just be me? Like no one has ever been like me. This is an uncharted territory. It can be anything I want it to be, so why put myself on one side of it? Why not just dabble? Why not have the full range, do whatever I want, be ‘The Guy’? Do you know what I mean? That’s how I feel. I’m the one writing this at this point right now. We’re in a position [where] we can do anything we want as long as they make noise.”
