For weeks now, WWE Raw star Reggie has been the 24/7 Champion, and has been starring in pre-taped videos of him out in various places, avoiding a chasing R-Truth and Akira Tozawa using his incredible athleticism.
One such segment saw Reggie in a park, where he avoided Tozawa and Truth who were camoflagued as a bush and a trash can by climbing a tree and flipping over the roof of a car.
The segments have left their impression on the audience, but apparently none more so than the children of former WWE Champion Kofi Kingston, who explained on the most recent episode of the New Day: Feel The Power podcast that his kids, especially his son Orion, can’t stop talking about the feats of athleticism on display from Carmella’s former sommelier. He said:
“We had a show in San Antonio and my kids were at the show and the one person they couldn’t stop talking about was Reginald (Reggie). He had a segment on TV where Tozawa and R-Truth are chasing him around and they’re camouflaged in trash cans and everything and Reggie’s jumping through like the trees and doing a flip off the trees, he does a flip over the car lands on his feet and gets into the car. My kids cannot stop talking about it, especially Orion. He’s like, ‘Yeah, the one guy, he did the flip into the tree and then he flipped over the car, he drove away and he said too easy,’ he’s still talking about it. That was like a week and a half ago.
Kingston then continued on, putting over the impressive feats shown by Reggie himself, saying:
“Obviously, we know him and we know how talented he is, and the cool, crazy things he can do. But the fact that he used to be at the Cirque du Soleil shows, you know, top performance, just crushing it, again, just an incredible level of talent that it takes to be a performer in general, but particularly like a Cirque du Soleil performer because the preciseness like seeing Reggie in the ring, and seeing what he does in the ring, blows my mind away because he’d never, he doesn’t miss a step and obviously, he’s new, you know what I’m saying? But like, the stuff that he does right now is so unique. To me, it just takes such — he’s never had a performance in front of a live crowd up until July when we started having shows. That was his first live performance. So the fact that he’s like killing it is mind-blowing to me. But then again, he’s been doing it for a lifetime with this Cirque du Soleil.”
Reggie won the championship back on July 19 after breaking away from Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler, and has held onto it ever since.
