Roman Reigns’ Bloodline storyline turned WWE’s product around and brought the wrestling business into a boom period.

Every show is sold out with energetic crowd, and even untelevised Live Events / House Shows are doing good numbers.

During an interview with Screen Rant, WWE Hall of Famer D-Von Dudley praised The Tribal Chief and gave him credit for carrying the company through a rough time.

Here’s what the Tag Team Legend said about Roman Reigns:

“I rank him in the same rank as Stone Cold Steve Austin, as The Rock, as Bret Hart, Hulk Hogan, Bruno Sammartino. He carried the company when others couldn’t and he did it for a long period of time.

Listen, at one point in time back in the 80s, you had people like Hogan, Bruno, Flair — they would have the titles for almost 3, 4, or 5 years. Then, that type of thing went away, you wouldn’t have that, you were a champion for maybe 6 months and that was it.

But Roman was able to captivate that and make it just like we did back in the day where we were counting how many days would Roman still be champion, who would be tough enough to knock off him off that pedestal. We had to make sure that the right person came along and was able to do that.

We saw matches with him and other WWE stars that were legendary, yet we needed that one guy and that one guy was Cody Rhodes. I was very happy to see that.

Again, I think Roman carrying the company, especially what he did during the roughest times, during the pandemic and leading up to WrestleMania 40, I think it’s great.

Storyline wise, the things that he did with The Bloodline, tremendous. I can’t put over enough how proud I am of The Usos and him and (Solo) Sikoa. It was a great ride. Even Sami Zayn when he was part of that. It was a great ride, it was a great watch to see those guys do their magic and I’m very proud of every one of those participants that participated in that.”
