Roman is solid in the ring because he works a slow deliberate pace
So slow that it's boring to a lot of people. It's almost like he purposely let's himself get beat until the end where he does his
, nails his big three moves nicely that gets the crowd to pop
There is a reason I bolded 3 moves(Don't get pissed, it's a joke).
, has great facial impressions during the match that help to sell himself and his opponent, also does a great job selling his opponents moves.
He's average in those aspects. I've seen a lot that are better including the 2 guys he's in a stable with. Not to mention, those 2 other guys have better psychology, more technicality, and better storytelling.
Reigns is solid on the mic because he has a cocky swagger that comes across like a bigtime star. The recent promo on main event was a good example of it. It came through in the royal rumble promo as well.
"What's my name?"
"My name is Roman Reigns and I'm the one who speared you on Monday Night"
If you like that promo, more power to you. To me, that promo was terribly laughable. He should stick to being an @sskicker enforcer or whatever.
Also, when he says things like "I'll break you in half" or "I'll se to it" it comes across as believeable.
I like it when he does that as it makes him sound like a ba. But... If someone's cutting one liner promos all the time, then he shouldn't even be bothered to be judged on the mic department, let alone be labeled as solid. BTW Dean and Seth are superior in that area and it's not even close.
