Roman Reigns spoke openly with Fox Sports this week, revealing how highly he sees AEW star Miro (formerly Rusev).
Speaking about some of the athleticism on display in WWE, Roman singles out Kevin Owens, AJ Styles and Rusev as some of the workers he loved grappling with. On Rusev here’s what he had to say:
I will say though, Rusev was really good. We had a good timing as far as in the ring, I always had a good chemistry with him to where where I could come off the ropes, take one step, launch and dart across the ring and he knew just the perfect height to lift up, open up for me. So, yeah, we did that thing all over the world. Those were good times.
In the same interview, Roman also singles out one of his favourite Spear’s of all time being one against Rusev at SummerSlam in 2016.
I ran down the ramp, I think at SummerSlam, and speared Rusev. I think that’s all I did. What a great night. Just come out at SummerSlam, just spear a guy, and then hit the bar after. So, that one was pretty wide open. Any time I can get a really big run and launch.
Roman Reigns and Rusev shared the ring several times, most notably during Rusev’s attempt to take the US Title back from Roman who took it initially from him at Clash of Champions. The feud ended at Hell in a Cell in the October to end their feud.
