Roman Reigns is the current WWE Universal Champion and is one of the top Superstars in the company right now. He has proven himself to be an excellent champion with great character work and in-ring skills.
Roman Reigns’ reinvention as a heel has truly shown just how good he can be both as an in-ring performer and character. It came after several years of being forced onto fans as a babyface.
While speaking to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Triple H talked about John Cena’s return at WWE Money In The Bank and also the upcoming match between John Cena and Roman Reigns at WWE SummerSlam. Triple H then stated that Roman Reigns is the biggest star in the pro wrestling industry right now.
“Roman is the biggest star in WWE, he’s the biggest star in the industry. He perfected his craft at a really hard time to do so with no fans. He put so much into his character work, and his reaction to Cena was as powerful as the moment itself.
“Watching that, I couldn’t help but think back to how long he’s been doing this and some of the tougher times he’s been through. Right now, he’s performing on a whole other level. He’s at the point where he is no longer thinking about the character, he just is.”
John Cena is set to appear on this week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown to confront Roman Reigns. We will have to wait and see how the feud between John Cena and Roman Reigns will be booked.
