The entire WWE Universe is waiting patiently for the return of Roman Reigns, and they have every right to be excited for his immaculate comeback to the WWE. Before Reigns went on the shelf with an emergency hernia surgery, he was in the main event scene, and it looked like he was never going to leave. Of course, his legions of fans were diminishing due to his version of the “Five Moves of Doom” and his mediocre microphone skills.
As bad as it sounds, sometimes a long break away from the WWE Universe does well for a character or person in general. There weren’t reports of Reigns feeling burnt out or frustrated, but his character was on the verge of becoming stale. Nobody wants a stale Roman Reigns because he’s supposed to be the next face of the WWE. How can a top guy be stale?
All satirical attempts aside, Reigns is still rehabbing and hoping for a return in the next month or two. If WWE plays their cards right, they will have him ready for the Royal Rumble, which will evidently have him win the main event match to go on and face Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 31. Luckily for the fans, Reigns continues to be showcased for more dates leading up to the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
“Roman Reigns and Chris Jericho were added to WWE’s events on January 17 and 18 in Las Vegas and Houston. Jericho is not listed for TV tapings for the next two days and isn’t listed for house shows the weekend before. Brock Lesnar was added to the January 19 RAW in Dallas before the Royal Rumble.”
While the casual reader thinks to themselves, “How convenient? Reigns is back two weeks before the big show,” they aren’t thinking about the big picture. Odds are Reigns is healthy enough to return right now. He is a “freak athlete” who possessed one of the better healthy streaks in all of professional wrestling. Reigns never missed time until the emergency surgery.
Reigns needs to be ready for his big moment at WrestleMania 31. Fans not wanting him there will have to suck it up because he is on the poster for next year’s extravaganza. Also on the poster are John Cena, Bray Wyatt, Daniel Bryan, Dean Ambrose, Brock Lesnar, and Mark Henry.
There was one thing about Reigns that had fans in a quandary. His mic skills were mediocre at best. Since he had time on his hands, Reigns decided to team up with a legendary actor, Howard Fine, to gussy up his acting abilities. Without these lessons, he would’ve never ascended to that top-tier the WWE wants him to. Along with wrestling, a WWE star needs to be able to talk too. That’s why all of the credit in the world goes to Reigns for wanting to improve. He’s going to need it for his big day come January 2015.
