As seen at Sunday’s WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view event, Roman Reigns retained his WWE World Heavyweight Championship against AJ Styles in an Extreme Rules match. Following the event, WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley took to his Facebook page to praise Reigns. Foley explained in his latest blog entry that he believes Reigns is the man in WWE.
Roman Reigns is the man. There, I said it. I’m sure I will get heat for saying it too. But the guy has found his groove. He’s having great matches, and it is not an exaggeration to label his series of matches with AJ Styles as epic. The same mannerisms that drove me crazy when he was being forced upon fans as the good guy – the crooked smile, the dismissive laugh – are incredibly effective heat-getters when facing someone like Styles – and as I’ve lawn maintained, he is as believable an ass-kicker as I’ve seen when angered. Now, with the return of Seth Rollins, I am looking for even bigger things from Roman Reigns.
Let me know what you think. Feel free to disagree.
