There are a lot of things to be said about Roman Reigns’ current run as the top guy in the company. A lot has been said about him over the past several months, and more will continue to be said.
However, it’s one thing to hear the WWE Universe give Reigns a hard time. When someone like The Nature Boy has something to say, we give him a chance to speak.
Ric Flair recently did an interview with Chris Jericho for “Talk is Jericho” and Roman’s name and his dynamic with the WWE Universe came up during their conversation.
You can listen to the full interview right here. Below is what Flair had to say about the WWE fans booing Roman:
“Look at the match him and AJ had. Holy cow! What a match. Start, restart, start, restart. And you know, AJ flies around. [Jericho] should know. He works Chris’ style of work, but Roman hung right there with him for 30 minutes. Roman’s got legs. It makes him a better performer. You can’t [boo him] anymore.”
The Reigns situation isn’t ideal by any stretch, but there is something to be said about millions of people at home enjoying themselves while thousands of people in the arena boo him. His skill is undeniable no matter how silver spoon his rise to the top of WWE has been over the past few years.
If you put aside your personal feelings, do you think Roman Reigns is a good wrestler?
