Before he became the WWE powerhouse known as Roman Reigns, he was Leakee, honing his skills in the WWE developmental territory, Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). During this formative period, Reigns crossed paths with several future WWE Champions, including Big E and Bray Wyatt, alongside other rising stars in the wrestling world.

Among these peers was Dutch of The Righteous, a current Ring of Honor and AEW competitor, who, back in his FCW days, went by Bobby Dutch. Reigns and Dutch faced off in the ring on five occasions, but one match stands out for an unusual and embarrassing reason.

Dutch's Embarrassing Confession

The incident came to light during Dutch's appearance on RJ City’s podcast, "Hey EW," where he and Vincent of The Righteous skillfully evaded questions about their alleged cult affiliations while engaging in light-hearted banter.

However, when RJ City inquired about a match where Dutch purportedly had an accident, Dutch reluctantly confirmed the mishap, admitting that he had defecated during a match with Reigns. This peculiar revelation comes at a turbulent time for The Bloodline, Reigns' faction in WWE, which has seen significant upheaval in his absence.

Solo Sikoa has taken the reins, bringing in Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa to the group while casting out Jimmy Uso after a series of defeats. The tension within The Bloodline was palpable at WrestleMania 40, where familial strife saw Jimmy Uso face off against his brother Jey Uso.

Meanwhile, Roman Reigns suffered a major career blow, losing the WWE Universal Title to Cody Rhodes. The future of The Bloodline under Sikoa's leadership, especially following these significant losses, remains uncertain. As these dynamic and often dramatic developments unfold, the wrestling world watches closely, anticipating the next moves of Reigns and his evolving faction, The Bloodline, in the ever-compelling saga of WWE.
