Roman Reigns had shockingly made his return with The Tribal Chief gimmick and fans have been impressed with him. He went on to capture the WWE Universal Championship and cemented his top position on the blue brand.
Pairing with Paul Heyman, he has been remarkable since donning the new gimmick. He has been brilliant with the mic skills as well as his in-ring perfomance. He has showcased some incredible matches against the likes of Cesaro, Edge, Daniel Bryan, Kevin Owens and his cousin Jey Us.
There has been talks that he could face John Cena at SummerSlam pay-per-view in August which could prove to be ‘passing the torch’ moment. But, before that, he will take on Rey Mysterio at upcoming Hell In A Cell pay-per-view next Sunday.
