Roman Reigns has become one of the characters most followed by fans after making a sensational turn heel. The current Universal champion has gotten rid of all opponents along his path so far, waiting to face a legend of Edge's caliber in the pay-per-view 'Money in the Bank'
Also thanks to the rise of the 'Tribal Chief' in recent months, it is rumored that WWE is seriously considering bringing John Cena back to start a storyline between the two heavyweights. The culmination of this feud would be on the occasion of SummerSlam, the most important event of the summer.
The leader of the 'Cenation' has repeatedly reiterated that he wants to make his return to the ring after a long time, considering that his last official match dates back to WrestleMania 36. Interviewed in the podcast 'It's My House', the former writer WWE and WCW Vince Russo analyzed the success of the new Roman Reigns.
Roman Reigns is the Tribal Chief
“I have spoken several times on this topic, so most listeners will already know what I think. WWE's biggest mistake dates back to about two years ago. Remember when Roman Reigns - I think he was in Philadelphia - won the Royal Rumble and people kept booing him even outside the arena? That night could represent the real turning point in Roman's career, which he was supposed to rail against Phila's audience.
It was the right opportunity to transform your character and make him become a heel. It seems to me that Vince McMahon and his management are always a couple of years behind creatively. If they had implemented that move in advance, the success would have been even greater,” explained Vince Russo.
The Stamford-based company struggled to come up with intriguing stories during the pandemic. “My opinion is that Vince McMahon is starting to lose heart. Just look at the huge difference between his former and current collaborators."
Roman Reigns is the Tribal Chief and the undisputed Universal Champion of WWE. He is the be-all, end-all for many people on the WWE roster and is without a doubt the "Poster Boy" of the company. As such, the Head of the Table has a huge target on his back.
If any WWE Superstar on the roster is even capable of stepping foot in the ring with Reigns, he is immediately elevated to main event status. There have been rumors floating around recently that WWE are preparing to make some main roster call ups.
