The Undertaker character is inarguably one of the most iconic characters in the world of professional wrestling. Very few WWE characters have reached his level of popularity. But “The Phenom” seems to love one of the current characters on WWE TV.
The Undertaker showered praises on the current Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Reigns’ career has received a massive boost since WWE Summerslam 2020. After six-month hiatus, Reigns returned to WWE, with the new Tribal Chief character.
The new character has completely rebranded Reigns as ruthless and egoistical. The fans have loved to hate the Tribal Chief, and now he has gotten the approval of the Deadman himself. Taker recently mentioned to Sports Illustrated that he was proud of Reigns.
“I’m so proud of where he is. The night of Survivor Series, I went up to Roman and Jey and said, ‘This is the most compelling story that we’ve done in a while.’ And where he’s been able to take it, it’s so good. It’s not forced. Roman is hitting on all cylinders. I think he’s a great heel—coldhearted, calculated. There is a compelling backstory and you still feel the tension when Roman appears. Like I said, I’m really proud of him.” mentioned Taker.
Another aspect that has elevated Reigns’ performance, is the addition of Paul Heyman as his Special Counsel. The best man in the business for delivering promos with the face of the company. His skills have definitely rubbed off on Reigns, and Undertaker acknowledged him too.
“Obviously, Paul Heyman is the perfect mouthpiece. He’s there whenever it’s needed, and he adds so much. They work so well together,” said Taker.
Universal Champion Roman Reigns might face Jimmy Uso at Hell in a Cell
There is no official announcement on Reigns’ match at WWE Hell in a Cell as of now, but he is most likely to face his cousin Jimmy Uso for the Universal Championship. Reigns could demand that Uso loses, he would have to acknowledge Reigns as the Head of the table.
Jimmy Uso returned to WWE, a couple of weeks back and has been trying to get his brother Jey Uso, away from Reigns. Last week on Smackdown, we could see Jey torn up between Jimmy and Reigns, after the Universal Champion attacked Rey and Dominik Mysterio.
