With a WWE pretension now over his shoulder, Roman Reigns was no longer a good guy. Or a bad guy. He was simply, The Guy.
His third pretension energy got off to a prohibited start as WWE interconnected him to with AJ Styles. It was a ideal initial argument for Roman and a “You Can’t Wrestle” crowd. The argument accentuated a positives of The Big Dog in a ring. Roman could use his energy to toss around The Phenomenal One, who has been a peaceful fender his whole career.
The dual had a good array of matches with Reigns entrance out winning in each counter. This was a Roman Reigns pretension that was going to concrete him as a new face of WWE. Finally, WWE was going full gimlet with him. No money in to hurt his moment. No Triple H wanting to be champion one some-more time. This was a no-nonsense donkey kicking Roman Reigns that fans had been clamoring for.
And then, he unsuccessful a drug test.
Since his name isn’t Brock Lesnar, Reigns forsaken a pretension to a returning Seth Rollins during Money in a Bank. Following a loss, he served his 30-day suspension. He returned during Battleground to attend in The Shield triple threat, losing purify to Dean Ambrose.
A detriment to Finn Balor in a Universal pretension semifinals seemed to set Reigns on a downward spiral. Now, we were removing a story of a damaged male who indispensable to collect himself behind adult and re-discover a glow that done him a three-time champion.
Instead, Reigns crashed a marriage jubilee between Rusev and Lana, for no reason, and constantly kick adult Rusev in front of his wife. Rusev got his revenge….by losing his United States pretension to Reigns. But remember, Roman was a good male in this feud.
Failure to constraint a Universal pretension from Kevin Owens during a finish of 2016 and early 2017 put Reigns in a Royal Rumble during series 30. He finished runner-up to Randy Orton, though a story entrance out of a eventuality was his rejecting of The Undertaker.
You see, The Undertaker unequivocally cared about winning a Royal Rumble and severe for a WWE or Universal pretension during WrestleMania. And Roman Reigns took that divided from him. Thus, The Deadman looked to put down The Big Dog during WrestleMania.
Despite a brief build, singular stakes, and expected bad compare quality, a hitch between a dual group in black headlined WrestleMania 33. This compare was so critical that they brought behind Jim Ross to call it.
For a third true year, Reigns’ WrestleMania impulse finished in sadness.
Most could see it entrance a mile away. With no Streak mystique, Undertaker’s WrestleMania matches mislaid a lot of luster. And while Reigns is improved than given credit for in a ring, he still needs a right competition and a right resources to broach between a ropes. Wrestling a 52-year-old in a compare with a diseased build and no stakes was not a right competition or circumstances.
Reigns and Undertaker incited in a misfortune WrestleMania categorical eventuality given John Cena and a Miz in 2011.
The idea of a compare was too, retire The Undertaker? Turn Roman Reigns heel? Pass a torch?
Your theory is as good as cave as dual of those things didn’t occur (assuming Undertaker does something this year) and a flame was theoretically upheld a year prior.
