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. Reigns’ reinvention as 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.

Roman Reign’s Tribal Chief character has simply elevated him to new heights and Paul Heyman as his special counsel has certainly helped him in that regard as well. One of the most improved aspects of Reigns since his return to the company has been his promo skills.

While speaking to the Sports Illustrated Media Podcast, Roman Reigns claimed that he has not been following a script for his promos since he became the Tribal Chief last year.

“You know there was a portion of my career where I’d either read a script or I would try to adjust the script as much as possible. But, you know, for a while now, especially since I’ve come back from my little leave during the beginning of the pandemic since SummerSlam, I’m not scripted. I say what I want to, I say what I feel. And if it comes out of my mouth, it’s my verbiage. I come up with it, I deliver it and that’s why it’s been the way it’s been because it’s mine.”


Roman Reigns is set to defend his WWE Universal Championship against John Cena at the WWE SummerSlam pay-per-view on August 21. We will have to wait and see if he will be able to retain his title or not.
