Roman Reigns is the hardest working man in WWE and gets zero respect due to Vince McMahon’s management. Roman, a valued member of the beloved Shield (a trio including Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins), finally knocked off Brock Lesnar in a Championship match at SummerSlam. He won his championship after a year-long struggle of the company complying with the worst champion of all time, Brock Lesnar.
Brock gained his title after beating Goldberg at Wrestlemania 33 and has held it ever since. He defended it 13 times. 13 times in a year in a half. Since Roman defeated Brock, he has defended it against Finn Balor right after Summerslam. And he defended it against Braun Strowman at Hell in a Cell. So that is twice in a month. If he holds it for a year in a half, that’s 36 times, triple the amount of Lesnar. Roman defeated Lesnar, but he also has defeated a plethora of other legends.
Roman defeated Triple H, to regain his title, in quite possibly one of the greatest Wrestlemania matches at Wrestlemania 32. Roman also feuded with the greatest wrestler of all time, John Cena at WWE No Mercy 2017. In what was an interesting feud, Cena claimed he couldn’t walk away and pursue the career he so desperately wants in Hollywood due to Reigns’ inability to cut a promo and hold a crowd. Reigns ultimately won Cena’s respect and Cena left the scene for the time being. But the best match he has ever fought was against the Undertaker at Wrestlemania 33.
The Undertaker is arguably the most adored, respected wrestler in history. You can’t find one person who hates him. Roman Reigns defeated the Undertaker, giving him his second ever loss at Wrestlemania and “retiring” him there in the ring. All these legends have one thing in common: they’ve lost to Roman Reigns. Roman also puts his body through so much, every single week. There isn’t a match in which he ends without blood on him. He got handcuffed, then got the shit beat out of him by Brock Lesnar, leaving millions of marks on his hand and blood everywhere. He slams opponents through structures and he gets slam through them as well. He gets abused week in and week out and gets booed for it, which I don’t understand. Now, Roman is about to face Braun and Brock in a Triple Threat Match in Saudi Arabia. If Roman does not win that, then I may be done with the WWE.
Roman Reigns is a champion, a champion that we deserve. He has done so much for the company and now it’s his time to collect his worth. He deserves a lengthy title run and the respect of everyone within the industry.
