Roman Reigns has been arguably the best thing about WWE during the pandemic. Since returning at SummerSlam, he has been a highlight of SmackDown with his newfound character. Now, John Cena has given him some major praise.
Cena recently spoke with Bleacher Report where Reigns was brought up. In short, Cena said Reigns is creating his own path and that he is the best he has ever been. Here is the quote:
“Roman is walking in his own steps, he follows in no one’s footsteps. This happens every time a marquee attraction has moved on. I went through it, everybody said it with Steve [Austin] and The Rock and I understand that. But Roman is crafting his own path, and I think it’s very important to say that he’s doing a great job. I feel this is the best he’s ever been and that comes with comfort. I don’t know what got him over that hill, but he’s over it and that’s a very important one to jump over.
Cena continued, “I just went out there comfortable with who I was and comfortable even if I failed. Taking brave choices and those brave choices haven’t stopped and aren’t stopping today as I continue to try to challenge myself. Roman has hit that point and that is, for audiences, a beautiful thing. Now he’s going to challenge himself and entertain the audience in ways they didn’t think he was capable of.”
John Cena and Roman Reigns have only wrestled one singles match together in WWE. The match took place at No Mercy 2017 where Reigns defeated Cena.
