WWE News: Roman Reigns Spoke About the Feud Against Bobby Lashley
Bobby Lashley vs Roman Reigns was the headliner for the better part of June-July. The initial belief was that WWE would fail to make an impact with this feud whatsoever.
There’s a solid reason behind this that we could barely deny. Fans reaction was negative for both of these men.
Hence it was hard to believe WWE could barely invest them in this program. WWE Universe remained cricket for the entire time through the return of Bobby Lashley. This behemoth persona was a significant inclusion to the roster of Monday Night Raw. But for somewhat reasons, he failed to garner any attention from the crowd.
The feud against Sami Zayn made things worse for him. It was the worst feud of the year 2018 or in recent memory without zero implementation or logic. Roman Reigns’ position was no better since he overcame the resistance provided by Jinder Mahal around Money in the Bank.
The crowd booed heavily to both of these men during their PPV match that forced the creative to pull an end to it, immediately. Going over from these lacklustre plots, both Bobby Lashley and Roman Reigns were able to create some impact against each other. The presentation was good in this storyline angle.
WWE presented them as two massive egos who were colliding to secure their pride in the company. Add the super-human strength to it, and we got some extremely physical showdown that over-delivered every single time. Primarily, this worked for Roman Reigns since he needed a strong opponent like this on the show.
Bobby Lashley too benefitted from the rivalry considering that his presence finally meant something to the fans. It was a rare occasion where the crowd was cheering for him. On this note, his opponent spoke on the valiant comeback of the former Intercontinental Champion in the WWE.
Initially, the Dominator had a roadblock to connect with the big league fans, but then he did extremely well. This good run should continue for him on WWE Raw. Meanwhile, these are the flattering comments from the franchise player in an interview with NBC Sports Radio, (courtesy wrestlingINC.com),
“From the get-go, I think it was a little rocky. I think he’s really settled in and he’s getting comfortable, and you could tell that it seems like he’s starting to feel at home again. When you leave WWE and you move around a little bit you can kinda get out of the shake of things. It seems like he’s really getting comfortable.”
