Roman Reigns explained, “The idea is to mesh the swagger that a [defensive back] possesses with the physique and build of a D-Liner. That’s why I think Aaron Donald would be a really nice addition to WWE. You take that helmet off of him, you let him come off his shell and a lot can be achieved.”
The Universal Champion added, “He’s already a dominant athlete. If you can just teach him to brag about that stuff, he can make an easy transition to the WWE.”
Roman Reigns also picked Rob Gronkowski, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers star to join WWE. Though ‘Gronk’ has been making appearances in WWE he is not a full-time wrestler. ‘The Tribal Chief’ reckons that he has the potential and is “built for sports entertainment”.
