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 Busted Open Radio, Mark Henry gave massive props to Roman Reigns for his character transformation into the Tribal Chief.
“Roman Reigns, you talked about this [speaking to co-host Jonathan Hood], his metamorphosis has been one for the ages. From the guy that we first saw that left NXT to the guy that was in The Shield, the guy after The Shield that they force-fed him to us as a babyface.
They were forcing it and you could tell that he didn’t embrace it. He didn’t embrace it, that’s why it didn’t work.
He really wanted to be who he is now and he was right but he had to go through all those other phases to be able to make people give a damn and now we have the finished product.”
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.
