Aleister Black Praises Roman Reigns

Aleister Black tangles with Kevin Owens.

Since returning to the WWE at SummerSlam Roman Reigns has gone from strength to strength. His work has already drawn acclaim from Triple H, and now Aleister Black has also been getting in on the act.

In a new interview with Sports Illustrated’s Justin Barasso, Aleister Black was full of praise for the current Universal Champion.

“I feel like this is the best work he’s ever done. Roman is in that super rare spot where he is so comfortable in the role that his confidence is Level 1000. Everything is presented in a way that is super organic, it makes you think he’s not even playing a character. To be honest, I don’t think he is playing a character. I think this is playing to every strength of Roman Reigns, of which there are a lot.”

During the interview Black not only expressed an interest in working with Reigns, he also revealed that he has spoken to Paul Heyman about making it happen.

“I’d love to be entangled with Roman and Paul, and I’ve spoken with Paul about this before. There are a lot of things that move the different pieces on that chessboard, getting me to checkmates, and that’s one of them.”

Interestingly after the 2nd night of the draft, the Dutch Destroyer and the Tribal Chief now find themselves on the same brand. So it could be that a long-awaited showdown between the two could be just around the corner.
