WWE's Roman Reigns has been nothing short of a wrestling deity since his awe-inspiring return at SummerSlam 2020. Reigning as the WWE Universal Champion for an astonishing 1,142 days and counting, Reigns has undoubtedly cemented his status as the company's marquee talent.

Yet, the road to greatness wasn't always smooth for the "Tribal Chief." In his prior run as the 'Big Dog,' Reigns faced his fair share of criticisms, particularly in the realm of mic skills. Recently, an old segment featuring Reigns and Big Show resurfaced, drawing attention to a rather lackluster promo he once delivered.

Social media was soon buzzing with fan reactions to the rediscovered clip. The majority were swift to highlight the monumental strides Reigns has made in his promo game since then. A segment of fans also shifted the blame toward the WWE creative team for the uninspired scripting during Reigns' earlier years.

The Tribal Chief was most recently seen in a gripping episode of SmackDown, where he had multiple confrontations with industry stalwarts like John Cena, LA Knight, and Cody Rhodes.

Anticipation is high regarding what the future holds for Reigns and his faction, The Bloodline. Amid this renewed scrutiny, Kofi Kingston, a prominent member of The New Day, lauded Roman Reigns in a recent interview with the Toronto Sun.

Kingston praised Reigns as one of the wrestling industry's all-time greats, setting him alongside legends like The Undertaker and John Cena. "Roman has truly escalated his game to an unprecedented level. Initially launched to prominence as part of The Shield alongside Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose (now Jon Moxley), Reigns utilized that period to understand the intricacies of the business.

And when he got the solo spotlight, he soared higher than anyone could have predicted," Kingston remarked. As Reigns continues to dominate in his current run, it’s a testament to his personal growth and adaptability.

For the legion of Roman Reigns fans and detractors alike, his evolution serves as compelling storytelling, making him an unmissable fixture in the ever-dynamic landscape of WWE.
