Roman Reigns has been on an unbelievable run in WWE for the past 2 years superseeding upon every barrier there was ever to overcome and thrashing on records like nothing. Who ever thought that he would the say guy who used to get booed out of the arenas for years would be cheered so damn loud despite being playing a bad guy. His Tribal Chief persona just feels larger than life and has just been flawless with the presentation since its introduction.
Holding the baton in his hands, Roman Reigns has managed to keep the spotlight over his cousins The Usos who have also evolved massively with Reigns and have proven an unstoppable force in the Tag-team division. Reigns successfully defended his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship last month at Summerslam in a Last Man Standing match against Brock Lesnar with some assistance from The Usos. With that, his rivalry with Lesnar is seemingly over for good atleast until Vince McMahon calls up hunter and begs him for running it back.
The next obstacle in the record-shattering title reign and quite possibly the biggest one yet is the Scottish Warrior Drew McIntyre who will claim his stake at Roman’s gold come September 3rd in Cardiff at WWE Clash at the Castle premium live event. The show will mark the first WWE stadium event in the United Kingdom in 30 years and will act as a massive backyard for McIntyre’s support. The two men are slated to come face-to-face this Friday Night on Smackdown emanating live from the Centre Bell in Quebec, Canada.
Stone Cold Steve Austin has acknowledged the true work-rate of Roman Reigns
You know when you’re receiving props from The Baddest SOB of all-time and quite very well be the Greatest WWE Superstar of the Attitude Era Stone Cold Steve Austin, you’re definitely playing it right. The Texas Rattlesnake recently spoke to Bill Apter about the evolution of Roman Reigns in the industry and how he’s being presented right now.
Calling upon the struggles Reigns faced with his character, Austin told that it really took him a while to figure it out even saying WWE’s fault for not booking him great at points. He also said that right now he’s given the right direction and The Tribal Chief just knows what he’s upto currently crushing it at the moment.
“I’ll acknowledge that he’s doing some amazing work. It took a while for him to put all the pieces of the puzzle together, and they didn’t book him in the greatest fashion at certain points of his career, but when he walked through the door, he was one of those guys that had that look and had that it factor. Like, if we can do the right thing with this guy, he’s gonna get over here. They finally started doing the right thing. He got to a mindset of where he’s at right now, and he’s just crushing it, and I couldn’t be prouder.”
