“Maybe in 10 years once he learns how to wrestle”- WWE Superstar reveals his opinion of Roman Reigns has changed since his return.
It is no secret that the WWE have wanted to build their promotion around Roman Reigns for a long time now. The former Shield member has become the face of the company in recent years. However, not a lot of people bought into the project at first.
The fans voiced their displeasure at the decision of pushing Reigns ahead of more talented wrestlers. In time, Reigns has shown that he is more than capable of holding his own and the fans have become more accepting of him including a certain WWE Superstar.
“Maybe in 10 years once he learns how to wrestle”- WWE Superstar reveals his opinion of Roman Reigns has changed
John Morrison returned to the WWE in 2019, 8 years after his departure in 2011. In a recent interview with Gamespot, he mentioned a few wrestlers he would like to wrestle which also included Roman Reigns.
Within the same interview Morrison admitted that he was one of Reigns’ critics early in his career but has since changed his mind after witnessing his impressive body of work.
“Someone asked me if I wanted to wrestle [Reigns],” said Morrison. “I said, ‘Yeah, I’d love to wrestle that guy. Maybe in 10 years once he learns how to wrestle.’ And they screen capped that with a really jerky picture of me smiling. And I stand by that then, but I’ve been in the ring with him once now, right down to seeing the caliber of matches that he’s capable of now. That’s another example of a guy who has really come into his own.”
Morrison is scheduled to face Braun Strowman alongside the Miz in a handicap match at Backlash for the Universal Championship. Backlash will take place on Sunday, June 14 at the Performance Center.
