John Cena talks Roman Reigns current WWE run as the Tribal Chief. The Universal Champion turned heel last year during his return at SummerSlam.
With John Cena slowly being phased out of the WWE, Roman Reigns was being prepared to take over as the new face of the company. Once word got out however, fans began booing the former Shield member to show their rejection towards Vince McMahon’s new pet project.
As polarizing as he has been over the years, off late, Reigns has since established himself as WWE’s biggest star of the modern era. He turned heel last year at SummerSlam and has become the most talked about wrestler in the promotion. While speaking with Bleacher Report’s Graham Matthews, Cena described his current as “the best he’s ever been”.
John Cena talks Roman Reigns current WWE run as the Tribal Chief
“Roman is walking in his own steps; he follows in no one’s footsteps. This happens every time a marquee attraction has moved on. I went through it, everybody said it with Steve [Austin] and The Rock and I understand that. But Roman is crafting his own path, and I think it’s very important to say that he’s doing a great job. I feel this is the best he’s ever been and that comes with comfort. I don’t know what got him over that hill, but he’s over it and that’s a very important one to jump over.”
Cena added that Reigns’ would continue to challenge himself and entertain the audience in ways they didn’t think he was capable of.
“I just went out there comfortable with who I was and comfortable even if I failed. Taking brave choices and those brave choices haven’t stopped and aren’t stopping today as I continue to try to challenge myself. Roman has hit that point and that is, for audiences, a beautiful thing. Now he’s going to challenge himself and entertain the audience in ways they didn’t think he was capable of.”
Reigns recently defended his Universal Championship against Daniel Bryan and Edge in the main event of Wrestlemania 37. He won after pinning both his opponents together, sending an emphatic statement to the crowd in attendance and at home.
