Roman Reigns is a legend
After a historic reign as Universal Champion of over 2 years, accompanied by that of WWE Champion, Roman Reigns has reached another milestone in his already rich palmares: in fact, he was elected best wrestler of 2022 by the historic magazine Pro Wrestling Illustrated.
Now in its 32nd edition, the magazine decided to put the Tribal Chief at the top, so he reached the top again two years after Seth "Freakin" Rollins. We just have to wait and see how this 2023 goes for him. With WrestleMania 39 underway, the Stamford-based company may be looking to shift into high-gear.
Tensions have been building up in The Bloodline over the last few weeks. Enzo Amore recently opened up about Roman Reigns allegedly having issues with his behavior behind the scenes in WWE. "I got into a physical altercation and it wasn't with Roman Reigns, so I had to change buses," Amore said.
"I got into a fight with a guy in the locker room and I punched him in his f***ing face. And when you punch somebody in the f***ing face, the next night Vince [McMahon] puts you in the main event. That's the truth. That happened."
