WWE star praises Roman Reigns as he compares him to WWE Hall of Famer.
Smackdown star Karrion Kross has acknowledged the ‘Tribal Chief’ Roman Reigns. Reigns has now gone unpinned and unsubmitted for over two years and is currently ranked the top performer in wrestling in the annual PWI 500.
Kross re-debuted on the August 5 episode of SmackDown and is fresh off a victory over Drew McIntyre in a Strap Match at Extreme Rules. Speaking with The Ringer Wrestling Show, Kross was asked who he wanted his next opponent to be:
“I feel like everyone should want to be in the ring with Roman Reigns. For me, I hope nobody minds that I’m comparing him but to me, he’s our modern-day Bruno. What he’s doing right now, in my opinion, is historic for our company’s history. This art of storytelling, it’s an amazing thing, and it’s going very, very well. People are having fun, they’re enjoying what they’re watching. It’s something different every week, but like, I could go on and on. That is the guy that I’d want to be in the ring with.”
Karrion Kross continued, saying that when it comes to giving the people what they want, he’s open to any idea:
“Aside from that, I mean, I’m a people pleaser. So whoever people really want to see me in the ring with me personally, that’s the direction I’m going to lean in. I like the big fight feel. I like those freak show fights. Those Superman versus Batman, ‘This shouldn’t happen, we wish it would happen. But there’s no way it can happen.’ Then it does happen and happens in WWE, and that’s why people come to see the show to cultivate that energy in a building. I wake up every day for that, I train for that, I’m aiming for that, you know?”
Recently, The Rock also heaped praise on both Roman Reigns and his cousins The Usos for their work in dominating WWE.
