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 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.

Roman Reigns commands respect from the WWE locker room as well as the fans as he oozes confidence in every word that Roman says. While speaking on The Battleground Podcast, Paul Heyman talked about the first time he met Roman Reigns, when Reigns was only three years old. Heyman claimed that even then, Reigns had more charisma than numerous WWE legends.

“What stood out to his son to me was that in a locker room filled with future WWE Hall Of Famers, future WWE Champions, future WWE main-eventers. I’ll throw one name at you, Sid Justice, who was in that locker room. A locker room filled with people like that. Filled with people like Yokozuna, Roman Reigns had more charisma at three-years-old than everybody in that locker room combined.


All the oxygen in the room went straight to him. He’s three years old, he’s holding his father’s hands. Yet when he just made a motion like he wanted something to eat, or whatever it was, everybody in the room noticed him. It was the damndest thing, he had a charisma at three that could not be denied.”

Roman Reigns achieved huge milestone in WWE recently as well. 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.
