• “Roman Reigns could’ve turned Cody Rhodes into a megastar” – Former WWF Champion

In the main event of WrestleMania 39, Roman Reigns defeated Cody Rhodes with the help of The Bloodline to continue his historic run as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.

Former WWF Champion Kurt Angle had the following to say about Roman’s title reign on his podcast, which is about to reach 1,000 days:

“I’m not going to beat up on Roman Reigns because he is the man. He deserves to be. But we’re in a time now where if you’re a champion for 3 years, that’s a little long. It’s just too long because we’re not in territories anymore.

When you were in territories, you weren’t on TV every week so fans had to come see you at the arenas. You would only be in that city one day a week. So they only saw wrestling one day a week back then when they were champion for 6-8 years.

Now Roman Reigns has gone on, you know, it looks like he’s gonna hold the title for another few years. The thing is, he’s on TV every week, sometimes twice a week, and then a pay-per-view every month. It’s just a lot.

I don’t believe the ratings are gonna go down, but I do believe some people are going to lose interest because they’re not making other wrestlers.

Roman has an opportunity to make a wrestler. He could have made Cody into a megastar, which Cody is already a star, but he would have been a megastar if he would have won at WrestleMania. That’s just my opinion.”
