The massive change in character for Roman Reigns over the years has been a painfully slow process. He went from being a babyface that fans rejected to one of the most compelling heels in recent memory. He also isn’t a stranger when it comes to accolades in the company.
Roman Reigns was simply hated by fans when he was a babyface and it was not hard to see why. This is despite the fact that Reigns competed in numerous top matches against the very best.
Reigns has truly come into his own as the Tribal Chief of WWE, with his work as a heel improving by the day. While speaking on his Wooooo Nation Uncensored, Ric Flair the work of current WWE Superstars as heels. He then explained how Roman Reigns is the perfect heel.
“There are three things that people hate- they hate arrogance, they hate guys who are so damn good looking that they can be as arrogant as they want, and when you have the skill that Roman does, you’re really gonna pi** people off.”
Roman Reigns will be squaring off against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38, where both of their titles will be on the line in a winner take all affair. We’ll have to see if The Tribal Chief will walk out of WrestleMania with both titles or not.
