Roman Reigns has been a force to be reckoned with as the Undisputed Universal Champion since he made his comeback back in 2020. He continues to be a dominant presence on WWE programming. His mic skills continue to improve over time. In fact, his most recent promo drew comparisons with The Rock.

As seen on last week’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown, The Bloodline had a very memorable promo segment. That included Sami Zayn making them break character and Reigns subsequently cut a very humorous, yet threatening, promo.

While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Drive Thru, Jim Cornette talked about the segment where nearly everyone broke character. Cornette claimed Reigns’ antics and promo delivery were reminiscent of The Rock.

“Both Roman and Jey were trying and Jey is covering his mouth up, like he is looking down, fighting with his inner demons. Finally, at one point, Roman puts his arm around him [Jey] and said, ‘If you can’t find your inner ucey again’ and Jey tries to turn away from the camera and Roman says, ‘No, no, come on back here.’ When he is doing that Roman sounds like The Rock, talking personally and just talking to him, he has that. Not even in the same kind of tone in his voice but the same kind of inflection or delivery or whatever I’m trying to say,”

Even Roman Reigns’ family member believes he will defeat The Rock at WrestleMania 39. We will have to wait and see how he fares against The Rock next year, if that highly-anticipated match does go down.
