Chris Jericho comments on top WWE Superstar. The AEW Star has not been watching WWE but is aware of the Superstar’s progress.
One of the most consistent criticisms that WWE recieves is their habit of overscripting their product. Doing so ensures that everything will go exactly how the WWE want, at least as far as what happens on television. However, it leaves fans with a hard task of suspending their disbelief because of how controlled everything looks.
Roman Reigns was a victim of this for years. The WWE pushed him in every way possible and placed him as their top guy at every given opportunity. However, the fans outright rejected him because many could not buy into the character he was selling.

Reigns eventually turned heel last year and has since won the fans over with his character work. Chris Jericho, who has worked with Reigns in the past, was asked about the Tribal Chief during his appearance on Konnan’s Keepin’ it 100 show. Jericho admitted that he did not watch SmackDown but was already very well aware of what he was capable of.
“I haven’t [kept up] but I’ve been reading about it and it’s no surprise. When I was there in 2016 I worked with Roman basically all around the world. I was a heel, he was a babyface. It’s a no-brainer there. You know what Roman is? I always said this and he’s doing it now, if you just drop the f**king script and just let him be him, he’s Cool Hand Luke man. He’s like the coolest cat. He’s a great guy. Just let him be him, and that’s what he’s doing now, obviously with a heelish slant, which is great,” said Jericho about Roman Reigns.”
