AEW’s Kenny Omega Praises WWE Star For Growth Following Fan Backlash WWE

AEW EVP Kenny Omega has shared his honest thoughts on former WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns.

While Reigns has always been pushed as a dominant star throughout his WWE main roster run, his work as the Tribal Chief from 2020 onwards has especially been praised by fans, amid speculation about his next move.

Speaking on a Twitch stream, Omega noted that he has a lot of respect for Reigns, who he believes is an incredible face of WWE.

Sharing praise for Roman Reigns, Omega said:

“I think Roman (Reigns) has been an incredible champion and company spokesperson. I think he did his job immaculately and I think it took a lot of guts and intestinal fortitude (for) him to stick with a lot of the backlash and hatred he received over the years from fans and otherwise.

“He really stuck to his game, upped his game, got better and better with each and every performance, and I think if it weren’t for his incredible growth as a champion, you wouldn’t have had such an emotional finale to the most recent WrestleMania.

“So I have the utmost respect for Roman. I think he was the one of the greatest WWE Champions that you just wanted to see someone win the belt off of, which is very important.

“It’s important to wanna see your champion hold the belt, but it’s also important to have a champion where you can’t wait until someone just actually takes it off of ‘em, you know what I mean? So I think in that regard, he was one of the greatest.”

With Reigns’ 1316 day WWE Undisputed Universal Title run ending at WrestleMania 40, and Solo Sikoa ordering a debuting Tama Tonga to attack Jimmy Uso on SmackDown, the status of the Bloodline faction is currently unclear.

Paul Heyman has now sent a message to Roman Reigns following Solo Sikoa’s attack, which you can read more about right here.
