Roman Reigns, as the company’s central figure for over eight years, undoubtedly possesses significant backstage influence. Wrestling veteran Vince Russo strongly advises Reigns to utilize this pull to halt the current plans that may result in the conclusion of his title reign.
In the latest episode of Writing with Russo, Vince Russo, a former WWE writer, provided a detailed explanation as to why he believes Cody Rhodes is not the suitable candidate to dethrone The Tribal Chief at WrestleMania 40. Apart from this, It has been rumored that the two will have a rematch next year.
“If I’m Roman Reigns, and I’ve got all the stroke that I’ve got and there are more family members climbing the ladder that are very young, I’m saying ‘We’re keeping the storyline in the family.’ He’s got enough stroke bro. That’s what I would do.”
If Russo had his way, a new member of the Bloodline would be the one to end his run, making it a family affair. In addition, He believes Roman Reigns should use his backstage power to keep the story within the Anoa’i family, rather than having an outsider like Cody Rhodes conclude it.
Roman Reigns may lose the championship this time as he is in a position to face his cousin, Jey Uso. After a massive brawl with various superstars, the victory mainly back supported Roman Reigns. In addition, Solo Sikoa and Paul Haymen have been the strongest pillars of Roman Reigns.
Watching Jey Uso win the SummerSlam will put a big smile on the faces of WWE. Certainly, A New Tribal Chief usurping the throne may sparkle the environment. Overall, The heel falling and the babyfaces rising are highly anticipated and the perfect ending to the SummerSlam main event.
Roman Reigns and his backstage maneuvers
Roman Reigns is the master of backstage authority. This backstage authority can be judged by his holding the modern locker room. The big dog is regarded as the leader of the modern locker room. In the year 2020, during his leap from WWE, he requested the heel turn and he’s still playing on the dark side.
Roman personally requested Vince McMohan to play the heel. Roman Reigns discloses in an interview with Ryan Satin of FOX Sports that he insisted on the heel turn. He illustrates –
“So, it was one of those things where it was like, ‘Man, I want to do this because I know I can tap into a different level of character work. I know I can create so many more layers as a performer if they allow me to do this’ but the numbers just wouldn’t let me. When the opportunity came I jumped on it. It was kind of a team discussion. Obviously, you gotta have the big man involved and gotta have the blessing from him. But, it just all seemed to work out with perfect timing.”
