The decision for Roman Reigns to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship over Cody Rhodes in the main event of night two at WrestleMania 39 has truly divided opinion with fans and former Superstars alike.
Many believe that WWE may have missed the opportunity to launch ‘The American Nightmare’ into superstardom whilst others like WWE Hall Of Famer and current WWE Executive Brian James, better known as ‘Road Dogg’ Jess James, believe that WWE made the right call and that the story will continue to build.
Another WWE Hall Of Famer has had his say this week and he too supports the company’s decision for Reigns to continue his record-breaking run.
Kevin Nash Fully Supports WWE Booking Decision
Former WWE Champion Kevin Nash offered his views this week on his Kliq This podcast, suggesting that WWE should keep the titles on Reigns until he passes 1000 days:
“That close to 1,000 , you have to do it. It’d be I’d like [Cal] Ripken had turf toe and would have f*cking just taken a day off. There’s certain milestones, and right now, he’s too close to 1,000. You’re only gonna be as successful as your f*cking top guy, and Roman’s the top guy right now.
Roman has the cool factor, Roman’s your money guy. They did it with me and Bret. If I would have beaten Bret out of the shoot, I think absolutely Diesel has a much better f*cking run. But the fact that they wouldn’t commit and put the f*cking eggs in the basket, I think that it hurt me, and I think that they weren’t ready to make that commitment. Things had went too well.”
Nash went on to add that, although WWE hasn’t strongly promoted the 1000 day landmark, it would still represent a huge achievement:
“No because they never made 1,000 the benchmark. It’s just, to me, it’s so much easier for me to say, f*ck, I’m the winningest champion of the 90s. Just to be able to say I had the f*cking strap for 1,000 days. If it’s 1,003, it’s still over 1,000 days, and it’s gonna be a long f*cking time until somebody says that again,”
