Roman Reigns has been dominant force in WWE for over two years now. He has beaten everyone put in front of him on his way to winning the promotion’s two top prizes. Kurt Angle recently said that WWE should have turned Roman Reigns heel long before 2020.
Kurt Angle recently reflected on his 2017 WWE in-ring comeback on the most recent episode of his Kurt Angle podcast. The WWE Hall of Famer also gave his thoughts on the Shield. He said that WWE should have turned Reigns into heel long before 2020.
I mean, these guys had an incredible faction, they had an awesome career, and they actually obviously spawned into singles careers and had incredible careers as well. The Shield was very special, one of the best factions in the history of the business.
I thought Raman was improving dramatically. I won’t agree that at the beginning of his career he should have been pushed as hard as he was pushed. He was still a little green, but Vince had faith in him and Vince did the right thing because Roman Reigns turned out to be an incredible performer.
I mean, Roman Reigns is one of the best workers in the business today. He earned that spot. So even though he didn’t earn it at the beginning, he had to go through that pressure of being the guy that’s pointed out as the top guy, and he worked through it, and he became the top guy. He gained respect from the other wrestlers eventually and that was the most important thing. It’s good to see they figured his character out. They should have turned him heel a long time ago. This is the best stuff he’s doing right now today and being a heel, doing the whole family thing, acknowledged me? It’s really good stuff.
The Olympic Hero teamed up with Seth Rollins, Jon Moxley, and Dean Ambrose to defeat Kane, The Bar, Miz, and Braun Strowman at the company’s TLC pay per view. Angle revealed that he went into the match with a torn muscle in his quad.
Kurt Angle proved that he still has pro wrestling in his veins, no matter what. We will have to wait and see whether the WWE Hall of Famer will make his return to WWE television somewhere down the line or not.
