World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) universe are not in favor of Roman Reigns being pushed towards greatness by the company. They showed a vociferous response at WrestleMania 32 when Reigns became the WWE World Heavyweight Champion defeating Triple H. However, wrestling great Tommy Dreamer believes that the man from Pensacola, Florida could become one of the company greats, he just has to replicate the persona of Mike Tyson.
“I wish he went out there and talked like Mike Tyson, who couldn’t really cut a strong promo because of the way he actually spoke. But yet Mike Tyson was the baddest man on the planet.” Dreamer said on Siris XM’s Busted Open Nation.
Tommy Dreamer has been a journeyman in terms of his wrestling career. He became famous in Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW), made a long run in the WWE as well as in Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA). He has the experience of working with a multitude of superstars and the 45-year-old finds Roman Reigns impressive.
The man from Yonkers, New York mentioned how he caught a glimpse of the 30-year-old fighting with Sheamus at a WWE live event in Florida. Dreamer felt, “That guy is pure money”. The crowd reaction, the charisma in the ring and the physical presence should make Reigns The Man in the company, according to the former WWF/E Hardcore Champion.
Roman Reigns is currently hated by the WWE Universe. Dreamer wants the company to cash in on this persona of him to make him a superstar. He mentioned that people loved to hate Mike Tyson but yet loved Tyson. It’s an interesting concept which the Vince McMahon owned wrestling promotion should use to make Reigns a viable threat, at least in the eyes of its audience.
