Roman Reigns is force to be reckoned with, and there are no signs of him letting go of his Universal Title. All of that momentum caught the attention of a lot of people, including The Undertaker.
In recent interview with The Independent, The Undertaker gave his thoughts about Roman Reigns. It’s no secret that Roman Reigns’ current run is amazing, and Taker admitted that it’s one of the greatest ever.
“He’s doing a phenomenal job. His character, his talent and everything has grown exponentially through this run. It’s arguably one of the greatest runs ever. I like it because it’s such an old school move, to have the title that long.”
According to The Undertaker, Roman Reigns is certainly a contender to be considered one of the greatest superstars of all time. However, he expressed uncertainty about whether Reigns belongs in the same league as icons like Steve Austin or Hulk Hogan.
“He’s got to be in the conversation. But do you put him in the same boat as Stone Cold Steve Austin, or Hulk Hogan? I don’t know. Everything’s so subjective when it comes to that.”
The Undertaker then went on to shovel on the praise for Roman Reigns’ current run in WWE. Suffice it to say, The Tribal Chief is the man in WWE right now.
“Reigns has the claim to fame now. He’s the man. I mean, it’s not even close, really. He’s had the title for a thousand days. Business is incredible. He picks his own schedule. He’s got a claim, he’s got an argument. I’m really proud of him for how he’s come. It really has been impressive.”
The Undertaker and Roman Reigns did meet in the ring. One of Taker’s two WrestleMania losses are to Roman Reigns. Now, we can look at Taker’s career in the rearview mirror while the Head of the Table is still going strong.
We will have to see what is next for Roman Reigns. He is certainly in a great place right now as he cements his legacy in WWE history.
