The push for Roman Reigns to be the face of the WWE didn’t stop in 2017. It only went further, as he “retired” The Undertaker at WrestleMania 33, defeated John Cena cleanly at No Mercy, and defeated The Miz to win the Intercontinental title, whilst becoming a Grand Slam Champion.
Reigns has built up one impressive resume thus far. He’s already headlined three WrestleManias, won every championship, and defeated just about every big superstar on the current roster. Oh, and he’s one-third of The Shield – one of the most dominant factions of all-time.
In some ways, you can say that Reigns has already peaked, and doesn’t have much more to prove – even if the main event push isn’t going to end anytime soon. But don’t tell that to Raw general manager Kurt Angle. He believes that Reigns can still climb the top of a higher mountain.
Speaking with Muscle and Fitness magazine, Angle said that Reigns isn’t “at his peak yet,” and he believes “his peak’s [still] coming, and that’s how good he is.”
That’s incredibly high praise from Angle, considering how much Reigns has already accomplished in his five-year career on the main roster. But considering how determined Vince McMahon and the creative team are to have him become the next major face of the company, Angle’s words probably have some truth to them.
Early rumors have Reigns facing Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 34 for the Universal Championship. A victory over the beast would add another great chapter to the career of Reigns, if that happens.
Reigns is just 32 years of age, which is fairly young for a WWE superstar’s standards. If he were to retire today, he’d undoubtedly be in the WWE Hall of Fame. But as Angle put it, Reigns still has a lot coming, and we wait to see how much higher the Roman Empire can grow.
