Roman Reigns is the franchise player of the WWE who’d been carrying the load for the company taking the duties over from predecessor John Cena.

The coronavirus pandemic forced him to go out of action, for sometimes but he will be back when the time seems right. There’s no way that he’s done with the professional wrestling ring, at all.

Despite being away from the company, Roman Reigns sticks with his incredible work ethics that is appreciated by most of the rival brand superstars. This is the reason why he’s in demand from WWE’s rival promotions, as well.

The legendary wrestler Chris Jericho explained why WWE’s Roman Reigns will be on top of his wishlist.

“I’d put Roman Reigns at the top of that wishlist for anybody because not only he’s a great worker, he’s such a cool guy. If they just let him be him, he’d be the biggest star in the industry for real. So that’s a guy I would love to get my hands on for sure.”


Another former WWE superstar who showed a tremendous amount of respect to Roman Reigns was one half of the Good Brothers. While he spoke with Sitting Ringside With David Panzer, Luke Gallows discussed his WWE return in 2016.

Roman Reigns can be credited for the same as he changed the environment as the locker room leader. People were no longer “walking on eggshells” but rather it was a much more relaxed situation, courtesy of the leadership that he served to the young superstars.


“When I got there (WWE) in 2016, I was pleasantly surprised because the locker room of old had changed. The old guard was gone. It wasn’t everybody walking around on eggshells. I give big credit to Roman Reigns for that.

It wasn’t the locker room vibe necessarily in WWE, it was the vibe of some of the people who weren’t in charge who still try to lead through fear and everybody is supposed to be scared of everybody and all that stuff.”
