ECW Original Tommy Dreamer recently appeared on Busted Open Radio to promote his promotion, House of Hardcore. During the interview, Dreamer commented on Roman Reigns and the way WWE has booked him. Here is what he had to say:
“I’m a huge Roman Reigns supporter and I’ll tell you why. I watched – I was there live in Florida on a house show – him and Sheamus, and I cannot praise Sheamus enough for being a great heel. Everyone’s talking about, ‘Oh, Roman Reigns and the Wyatts pairing together’, but you got to have great heels to actually work with that. Sheamus, Del Rio, and Rusev – who I’m big fans of, the bad guys. And, you think about it, the people are going to be on their feet for all of those matches.
For the haters, to see AJ Styles win, and again, we work for the reactions and we work for people talking about it the next day… I watched [Reigns] and Sheamus work about 25 minutes on a Sunday show and they had a WrestleMania match, and the people were so into it. Right then and there, I was like, ‘That guy is pure money’. I saw it live, and I just watched it and I totally saw why he’s the man and he should be the man. But, guess what? We got Seth Rollins eventually going to come back, Randy Orton – you think of all these people who’re going to try to knock ‘the man’ off his perch. I wish he went out there and talked like Mike Tyson, who couldn’t really cut a strong promo because of the way he actually spoke. You’d be like, ‘Oh, I could kick that man’s butt. Listen to how he talks’, but yet Mike Tyson was the baddest man on the planet. If they kind of went that way with Roman Reigns – because when you think about it, we loved to hate Mike Tyson and then we just loved Mike Tyson. It’s an interesting time for the Roman Reigns lovers and haters. I’m a Roman Reigns lover.”
The show airs on Mondays, Tuesdays and Fridays from 2-4pm ET on SiriusXM Rush 93 and on the SiriusXM App on your smartphone.
