Roman Reigns Attacker Discussion Thread









Literally this has been the most interesting storyline in a while other than the cringeworthy acting by that announcer chick last week. Bravo to whoever came up with this, it’s reminiscent of the attitude era

Re: This Roman Reigns storyline has been amazing

Amazing? Which part? The poorly edited equipment “falling” on him in slow motion? The poorly ripped “who ran over Austin” segment where someone dented Roman’s car? Or is it possibly that we already pretty much know who’s doing all of it?

Re: This Roman Reigns storyline has been amazing

It's been great in the sense it made me laugh. The horrible execution of the SD angle killed an chance of this being serious. But again, it at least makes me laugh.

The only thing that could be good about this right now is showing off a new side of Joe.

If this is your bar for amazing, then the last few years of WWE must have been mind-blowing for you.

Re: This Roman Reigns storyline has been amazing

Yeah, I'm legit interested. If the attacker is Daniel Bryan I won't care though.

The production value was bad but I don't think the other criticisms are fair, that Austin storyline was damn near 20 years ago, there have been storylines redone dozens of times in that time period, this is wrestling all storylines get repeated eventually. As for us knowing who it likely is, that's because of dirt sheets, there hasn't been any indication of who the attacker is and the person he's been feuding with is a red herring. You wouldn't read spoilers for a movie and then claim it was all predictable.

WWE is actually putting effort into a story and trying to craft some intrigue, this is the type of goofy shit that made the AE great, but I guess we could have more "I'm the best wrestler" storylines.

Shilling for Xia Li, Aliyah, Bianca Belair and Rhea Ripley

Re: This Roman Reigns storyline has been amazing

I don't think it's completely amazing but it's not awful either. It's something different at least and it means Roman is finally away from Shane lol.

It's just stupid though cos the person who tried to hit and run Roman won't get arrested, no Roman will just fight them at Summerslam instead

Re: This Roman Reigns storyline has been amazing

I agree. I'm really intrigued and I even think WWE might pull a swerve on the attacker the dirt sheets are predicting. I also loved Joe's reaction and his backstage promo after.

Re: This Roman Reigns storyline has been amazing

It's okay so far. Great way to keep him interesting and center of attention without having him hold a belt. Very smart.
