• Former WWF Champion Thinks Roman Reigns Shouldn’t Have Been Pushed Hard Early On
As soon as The Shield split, Roman Reigns was put in a WWE World Heavyweight Championship match and there were immediate plans for him to be made the “Face of WWE”.
According to WWE Hall Of Famer Kurt Angle, WWE shouldn’t have pushed Reigns that hard and that early in his singles run.
Below is what the Olympic Gold Medalist said:
“I thought Roman 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, acknowledge me? It’s really good stuff.”
