The drastic change in character for Roman Reigns over the years has been well documented. He went from being an utterly dull babyface to one of the most compelling heels in WWE. He also isn’t a stranger when it comes to accolades in the company.
Roman Reigns was an eyesore for many when he was a babyface and fans and pro wrestlers alike agreed with this notion. This is in spite of the fact that Reigns competed in high profile matches against the very best.
While speaking on The Player’s Experience, Kurt Angle talked about Roman Reigns’ initial push in WWE, stating that Reigns did not deserve getting pushed at that time.
”I think what Roman did is he went through his lumps. In other words, the company was pushing him when he probably did not deserve it, but he stepped up to the challenge and he overcame it and he actually did better than everybody expected him to. Credit where it is due, Roman Reigns became the best athlete in the business, the best wrestler in the business.”
We will have to wait and see if Brock Lesnar will become both the WWE and Universal Champion at WrestleMania 38 as fans have been waiting to see Roman Reigns finally drop his WWE Universal Championship for a long time.
