Though Reigns’ rise to stardom has been controversial – due to the general rejection by the WWE Universe – there’s no denying the impressive resume built by The Roman Empire. He’s already beaten a handful of legends, including Triple H, and most recently both John Cena and The Undertaker.
Reigns ‘retired’ Undertaker at WrestleMania 33, which many would mark the most iconic moment of his career thus far. But during an interview with The Times of India, Reigns explained why he was more satisfied in defeating John Cena:
“Beating Cena was more satisfying but it was bigger moment obviously for me beating The Undertaker in one of the biggest Wrestlemania’s of all time.
It was just one of those moments in my career that’ll shine no matter what happens or who I get in the ring with. Being in the ring with The Undertaker in the main event, that speaks for itself but there is something very satisfying about beating John Cena.”
Reigns didn’t exactly elaborate as to why defeating Cena was bigger – but considering how much the latter has rarely lost over the past few years, it’s easy to understand why. Also, Reigns is at a point where the torch is being passed from Cena to him, so his victory was definitely was a changing of the guard moment.
Love him or hate him, Reigns has accomplished aplenty at the age of 32 – something few wrestlers can attend to. He’s won every major championship, the 2015 Royal Rumble and has already headlined three WrestleMania events.
And whether you like it or not, Reigns is going to be the next face that runs the place in the WWE. If that weren’t the case, WWE wouldn’t have him beat ‘Taker and Cena in such a short span of time.
