Re: Roman Reigns consistently puts on great matches

I mean, you can love Roman and his 7 moves all you want but I still think he needs improvement

Re: Roman Reigns consistently puts on great matches

I thought the main event was terrible.

So many bells and whistles to keep the belt on Roman but let AJ look strong.

It was a farce, it really shows the limitations of Reigns they have to make it interesting by doing all that shit.

Refer to owens and zayn, then come back here an tell me he's a good worker. He's okay, but he won't get my respect as the main event 'guy'.

I like violence

Re: Roman Reigns consistently puts on great matches

He's been a great worker for almost a year and a half. Not exactly new news.

Where is this great Reigns vs Rollins match that you speak of? And yes, Bryan and Styles are top workers, as is Cesaro, but the argument that Reigns is only good when paired with top workers ended a long time ago. Lesnar (IMO) is not a good wrestler at all. He's intriguing because he's from UFC, but if any of the wrestlers worked how he did, they'd get massive heat. Big Show is washed up and him vs Reigns at ER 2015 was his last great match in a long time. The HIAC match vs Wyatt was amazing and was Reigns' first top match with someone less skilled than him. Multiple times vs Luke Harper, Sheamus, Kofi Kingston, Rusev, Del Rio, the list goes on. I'm not sure what more he has to do to prove he's a force to be reckoned with in the ring. He's wrestled half the roster, and usually very well. At some point you have to give him credit too.

Last year, Reigns and Rollins had roughly equal workrate, yet no one questions Rollins' wrestling prowess. Yes, anyone can have a great match with the right person, but Reigns has proven by now that he is one of those "right persons". I'm not really sure who is he supposed to wrestle to get credit for what he brings to the table. Is he supposed to go find someone from developmental? There's not exactly anyone on the roster who flat out sucks in the ring, except maybe Braun Strowman, and his match with Reigns was less of a trainwreck than any of his other singles matches.

SMH

That spear at the end of the match was bad ass. His leap over the top rope = bad ass. His swagger and how he carries himself = bad ass.

I hope he goes on a rampage and buries the entire roster and then feuds with rollins for the belt for about a year. That is best for buisness.
Absolutely agree, you'll get called a troll but he has consistently shown he is a solid main eventer.
Yeah I know neg rep whatever.

Dude was an absolute beast in his first run and even now Roman didnt have one match close to Brock vs Punk at SS or Brock vs Taker at Hiac.

Re: Roman Reigns consistently puts on great matches

AJ/Owens>>>>>>>>>AJ/Roman

And If they give us AJ/Rollins it will blow AJ/Roman out of the water. Roman is not horrible in the ring but his fans act like he belongs in the upper elite when it comes to wrestlers. You can always tell how good a wrestler is by how limited and simple their moveset is. And Roman has a very limited and simple moveset.

And that is why I said "is not", not "was not". I don't know what happened to his skill, but he doesn't use it anymore, and I judge wrestling by what's displayed. Skill is worthless if it isn't demonstrated.

I enjoyed Reigns vs Wyatt at HIAC over Lesnar vs Taker. You had 2 young guys, neither one acknowledged as good workers, having gimmicks that were basically watered down versions of the older guys in the main event, not allowed to use the cage to the fullest extent, and still managed to shine. That match amazed me. Not only Reigns but Wyatt as well. Never in a million years did I think those 2 would work that great of a match together, but they did. They used every resource they were allowed, and it was amazing.

Nothing against Lesnar vs Taker, but I feel like it got more love because of the blood than it would've otherwise. If Reigns and Wyatt had been allowed to use the cage to the fullest extent, it wouldn't have even been close which match was better.
