Steveson has a lot of praise for the WWE Universal Champion, and he also mentioned how he looks at other celebrities talking in public and trying to replicate them.

“Just been watching how people talk,” Steveson said. “You know, like how Roman Reigns talks on Friday Night Smackdown. He’s so productive. He’s strong with his words and he’s just a one-of-a-kind spokesperson. I look at a lot of interviews online, like how celebrities talk and how they take things off of them and put it on other people to congratulate them while making sure that everyone gets the love put on them too. So it hasn’t been a hard thing, but I think I’ve been doing really good at it.” (H/t Wrestling Inc)

“Good that goes to bad,” Steveson said. “Yeah, start off good. Make the fans love you and then turn to a bad guy, kind of how Roman Reigns did. Any storyline they give, I’m going to accept, and I’m going to put my best foot forward, and I’m just — I love to be on camera. I love to do my thing and just bring a variety of who Gable Steveson actually is to the outside world.”
