• “He’s the total package” – CM Punk Praises Roman Reigns
From hurting Roman Reigns’ babyface push several years ago with the “make Roman look strong” comments on a podcast, to praising Reigns and calling him the best wrestler in WWE, it looks like the CM Punk – Roman Reigns saga has come full circle.
During his appearance on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, former WWE wrestler CM Punk praised the current WWE Universal Champion big time and said the following:
“A lot of the times the best stuff you also just got to go with the flow with it. I’ll use Roman Reigns as an example because if we’re talking about good stuff, if the WWE does anything good, this is the one thing they’re doing right right now is Roman Reigns. His character work, his in-ring stuff, it’s all great.
But I feel like classic WWE, they’re always 5 years, 10 years late. This is something that they should’ve done originally because they tried so hard to get this guy over as a babyface and they gave him x amount of [WrestleMania] main events and said this is the guy, this is the guy and he never really had his moments until now.
Maybe he needed that adversity and that backlash to finally be this guy but this is the one thing they’re doing right.
What can you say bad about what Roman Reigns is doing right now? He’s far and away the best guy they have. When you talk about storylines, in-ring work and all that stuff, right now he’s the total package.
For the first time in his career, and I’m not being mean to Roman Reigns, I just feel like he’s finally where they pushed him to be, it just took a minute.”
