R-Truth has revealed his pick for the greatest WWE superstars of all time. The former WWE United States champion recently spoke to Brandon Robinson of Bally Sports about which WWE superstars are equivalent to basketball’s all time greats such as Michael Jordan, the late great Kobe Bryan and LeBron James.
“I’d say The Rock would be Michael Jordan. Roman Reigns would be Kobe, and Randy Orton would be LeBron James,” he said. He continued, “Randy’s bad ass. Randy can go! And I named those guys Randy and Roman because those are guys that I find myself – I’ll sit at the monitor and I watch them because there’s a technique to wrestling. It’s like an art. It’s like painting and it’s like a dance and wrestlers have that.”
“Randy and Roman… they can tell a story that can compel you and draw you in and Roman and Randy can do that. It’s certain wrestlers that can do that and wrestling has so many different levels to it man… you can call me the Elvis Presley of this joint, you know what I’m sayin’? These guys are like maestros at it. Randy Orton and Roman Reigns; watching them is like watching a painting being painted by Norman Rockwell.”
Orton recently set a new record for having most matches on WWE pay-per-views. The 41-year-old also set a new career milestone on the November 22nd episode of Monday Night RAW when he became the wrestler to participate in the most number of matches in the show’s history.
Reigns, on the other hand, is the current WWE Universal champion. The 36-year-old won the title (which he holds to this date) for the second time at the Payback PPV, which took place on August 31, 2020.
