Roman Reigns has been top of his game for over three years now. He has not been pinned for over 900 days and he has headlined two WrestleManias during this period. He has managed to beat everyone who came as an obstacle which includes the Scottish warrior Drew McIntyre.
However, McIntyre is one of the toughest The Tribal Chief has faced during this period. The two heavyweights most recently locked horns at WWE’s premium live event Clash at the Castle. McIntyre almost had the Head of the Table drop the title but Solo Sikoa made an unexpected interference to help Reigns pick up the win.
During an appearance on the Faction 919 podcast, McIntyre broke character to heap praise on one of his biggest rivals. He opined that WWE saw the talent in Roman and that they decided to build him as their face. However, Drew professed that the Tribal Chief took some time to find his personality. He said
“His former self was amazing to work with. He’s such a talented athlete in the ring,” McIntyre said of Reigns. “Personality-wise, he still quite hadn’t found who he was, because he was playing a role. He wasn’t himself. And he did very well playing a role. He was given the biggest opportunities of all time for a reason, because they knew this is the guy. Now that he finally has a chance to be his true self, he’s absolutely killing it, [and] has been for two years.”
McIntyre went up against Roman Reigns’ Bloodline at the latest Survivor Series WarGames premium live event. Though his team could not beat the Bloodline, it was a valiant effort. The bout received immense praise for its incredible storytelling.
