Roman Reigns is currently on the WWE run of a lifetime. The star has been Universal Champion for a staggering 783 days and counting, while he also captured the WWE Championship back at WrestleMania 38.
Since returning to WWE following a short hiatus at SummerSlam 2020, Reigns has been in ‘God Mode.’ The Head of the Table has seen off challenges from all comers, including Hall of Famers, former champions and some of the very best in the world today. Brock Lesnar, Edge, Bryan Danielson, John Cena, Kevin Owens, Finn Balor and more have all fallen victim to the leader of The Bloodline.
Diamond Dallas Page Compares Roman Reigns To Jake Roberts
Since adopting his current heel persona and taking up position as the head of The Bloodline, Reigns drastically altered his promo style. At present, Reigns rarely raises his voice, and delivers his promos in a very slow and deliberate style.
Speaking on a recent episode of his DDP Snake Pit podcast Diamond Dallas Page said that this style reminds him of Jake Roberts.
“And to me, they are their own thing. Again, this is something that is hard to do. You know, once especially The Four Horsemen had their thing, and the NWO had their things. So everything will be compared to that, but this is different. And I was sort of bummed Jake wasn’t here today, because I wanted to talk about this.
When you listen to Roman talk he has, it’s his own thing, but it’s kind of reminiscent of Jake a little bit. Where you don’t ever hear Roman yell. You don’t hear him like, he will tune it up, but he keeps that composure that Jake could do. You know, and it’s different. And the way he’s doing it, like I listened to him and I watch him. Like man, he is the man. And that’s why Drew didn’t beat him. Because he wasn’t ready to walk away.
He might have less dates or whatever, but he didn’t want to have to do anything. He’s in that spot. And I love Paul E there. You know, love Heyman because he plays his part. You talk about knowing your role, every one of those guys knows their role. You know, it cracked me up and again, bringing out the Original Bro, bringing out Riddle. I was like, Oh, this is going so good. I was afraid it was going to screw it up, but it didn’t. Because as soon as Sami got involved with that. Like that whole thing. That was really, really well done.”
Roman Reigns is set to be back in action at WWE Crown Jewel where he will defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Logan Paul.
