Roman Reigns is holding that Undisputed Universal Championship up and above his shoulders to add on his already dignified glory. The Tribal Chief has been rampant ever since his return to WWE at Summerslam two years ago. He can get to a huge milestone of holding the World Championship for 2 years if he somehow manages to beat Brock Lesnar come this year’s Summerslam.

Wrestling veterans Road Dogg and Vince Russo recently opined on Roman Reigns’ reduced schedule on which he’s a riding upon since unifying the titles at Wrestlemania this year. They agreed on the fact that established superstars don’t need to show up on tapings every now and them and have an actual wrestling match every single week. They even compared Reigns’ case similar to that of the legendary Hulk Hogan who was also the greatest superstar of his era just like The Tribal Chief is defining this modern era of wrestling.

“Once Roman or Hogan gets so over, he cannot be there every night, but he’s gotta get to that level first,” James said. “In that level, they’re pushing him out in front of the people, whether it’s a music video, whether it’s him playing the bass, or whatever, Hogan is there.”

Roady and Russo further penned in ways so as to keep the top guy on the television screens without actually having their presence in-person every week.

“They don’t need to be wrestling a lot,” Russo said. “They need a presence, though, on the show. Brian knows there are so many ways to get them on the show without them wrestling. They’re the star of the show.”

Roman Reigns and Hulk Hogan are just two names of greatness from the different eras of professional wrestling. While Hogan was carrying the company through the 90s which was termed as the golden phase for WWF, the same way Reigns is destined for greatness in the years to come and his will be remembered for the generations to come.
