• Former WWF Champion Thinks Roman Reigns Is Changing The Game
During a recent interview with Comicbook, former WWF Champion The Rock was asked if he’ll have a proper run as a Champion in WWE if he defeats Roman Reigns for the Universal Championship.
Here’s what The Great One said:
“I don’t know if I have another title run, considering I’m the People’s Champion, but I don’t know if it’s another title run.
I think possibly, you know, there might be another match down the road. It would have to make sense.
It seems like Roman, you know, I’m very close with Roman obviously, and we talk about this all the time, and I continue to encourage him to keep doing your thing, keep sharpening those skills.
I think he’s doing a great job with his promo, his execution, his in-ring work. It all continues to improve and grow. And that’s always the best part, I think, about that world of professional wrestling is that when someone gets anointed and given the ball to run, they either score a touchdown with it or they don’t.
But then some, not only score a touchdown with it, but then they begin to change the way the game is played. And in Roman’s case, he’s slowly doing that, and you could start to read the tea leaves.
And again, I’m very, very proud of him. I like everything that he’s doing. I like everything that the Usos are doing. I like what they’re doing together, and we’ll see down the road.”
