• Finn Balor On What The WWE Locker Room Has Known About Roman Reigns For Years
During a recent interview with DAZN, SmackDown Superstar Finn Balor praised current Universal Champion Roman Reigns.
Here’s what he said about The Tribal Chief:
“People keep saying it took Roman awhile to get to where he’s at. But when we locked up in 2016, people were talking sh*t about Roman all the time online, in the media, everywhere.
When I locked up with him in 2016, I realized that everyone was wrong. My eyes were open. When you’re in the ring, and you feel someone, you feel that energy in that first lockup. There’s nowhere to hide. That energy, he had it in 2016, and he’s had it ever since.
Maybe people weren’t, you know, on the same wavelength to quite fully tune into that and understand that, recognize that, acknowledge it if you want to say.
But for the last year, I think people are a little bit late to the party, because Roman for me, has been someone who’s been performing at this level for years and years.
Now people are learning he is a once-in-a-lifetime talent. Roman’s proven that over and again, and the masses have accepted and acknowledged that ability and growth. His presence is just unimaginable right now.
He’s the real deal. It may have taken a lot of time for the media or the fans to realize that, but I think his peers, the boys in the locker room, have been well aware of this for a very long time.”
Reigns defeated Balor on tonight’s SmackDown to retain the Universal Championship.
