Roman Reigns is on a roll since his return to the company back at WWE SummerSlam last year. He returned as the Tribal Chief and truly reinvented himself. The change was several years in the making as fans clamored for it for so long.
The Head of the Table has certainly been very dominant as the WWE Universal Champion as he has remained the champion for well over a year now. It is unlikely he will be losing the title anytime soon from the looks of it. He has competed against several top WWE Superstars throughout that time.
While speaking on WWE After the Bell with Corey Graves, R-Truth discussed Roman Reigns’ current run as The Tribal Chief and why he has been so successful. R-Truth stated that he believes Reigns hasn’t even reached his peak yet in WWE.
“I don’t even think he’s reached the pinnacle of his career and he’s as hot as a 6 shooter right now, he’s hotter than a firecracker, he’s hotter than hot sauce. He’s matured so much. I’ve seen him succeed to levels and levels, he’s bridged gaps and he has that IT factor all around him man. Inside and out, he has the IT factor.
I’ve seen him come up with promos in his head, we’re driving and he is constantly working man, constantly trying to perfect his craft. Even when I would go to Florida to his house, he’s in the gym at his house, he’s thinking of a promo, ‘what do you think of this idea right here?’ He’s a guy that I know for a fact 24/7 he’s trying to perfect his craft and take it higher than it can go.”
Roman Reigns is set to defend his WWE Universal Championship at WWE Day 1 on January 1st, 2022 against Brock Lesnar. It remains to be seen how long Roman Reigns will remain the champion.
