Seth Rollins told Brian Fritz of Between the Ropes the smartest thing WWE did was put Roman Reigns with him and Dean Ambrose. Below is an excerpt:
“You know what, I tell him [Roman Reigns] this and we joke about it, but the smartest thing the [WWE] company did was put him with me and [Dean] Ambrose. Because when we met him, he started from scratch. Granted he’s got a whole family history in the wrestling business, but he’s a football player. He’s an athlete and he’s coachable, but like he gets it. Like he got it quick and he understood right away what we were doing. I think putting him with myself and Ambrose, who had the wealth of experience and the all the knowledge and traveling the road. We’re in a car all the time, we’re on the planes together, we’re having the matches together. He was just able to soak up that information we were giving out like a sponge and you can see the difference. He was great when we came in, but look at him now and he’s a completely different performer. It was the smartest thing they ever did, putting him with us.”

Richard Reacts: I absolutely agree. Roman Reigns was as green as grass and there were a lot of people that wondered how he would do with two guys that were pro wrestling veterans. As we’ve seen, the cream rises to the top.
