Last year Roman Reigns made his return to WWE, and shortly after he won the Universal Championship then introduced the world to his Tribal Chief persona. Reigns has been received a lot of praise for his current gimmick, and The Usos have also added a lot of drama to his storylines.
In recent weeks fans have seen Reigns get into a power struggle with The Usos, and during an appearance at Steel City Comic Con WWE Hall of Famer Rikishi praised all three performers by saying he’s proud of them.
“Well, first of all I’m proud of them [The Usos & Roman Reigns]. We know where they come from, what bloodline that they represent and these boys here and Roman, they’re all trained professionally and to be able to see your family members headline SmackDown, headline WrestleMania, headline Monday Night Raw, it’s a beautiful thing, it’s prideful for us, because they came in during the time after the mighty Yokozuna. If you guys haven’t had the chance to see the absolutely tremendous documentary that WWE had put together on the mighty Yokozuna, check it out.”
“But, these guys come in from a family behind us, from a family that’s from Umaga to Yokozuna, The Rock, I mean the list goes on and to be able to see your kids and your nephew out there doing it out there and representing and holding it down, it’s a beautiful thing,” he added. “I think the storylines they’re going through as of now, I think it’s beautiful. It’s not a story, that’s really them. They’ve been fighting like that since they were kids in the backyard. And now to be able to do that on-camera and get paid for it, I’d say it’s a beautiful thing. Samoan Dynasty is winning.”
Roman Reigns successfully defended his Universal Championship against Rey Mysterio inside Hell in a Cell on SmackDown last week, so it will be interesting to see where he goes from here. Stay tuned for updates.
