Roman Reigns believes that he could be placed in any era of professional wrestling right now and that he’d be the top guy.

The Head of the Table recently sat down with Jonathan Snowden of The Ringer to discuss a wide variety of subjects. When asked about being compared to other WWE legends like John Cena and The Rock, Reigns questions if they could do what he’s doing right now as The Tribal Chief believes he would be the top guy in any era of professional wrestling.

“All those guys that you named off, could they do what they did right now? I know I could do it back then,” Roman Reigns said. “I know if you sent me to the ’40s, ’50s, ’60s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s, 2000s, I’m going to be a top guy, I’m going to be a centerpiece. But could they come into this world?

“Could they handle the burden and the pressure of 2022, of the modern day? I just don’t think they could. And that’s no disrespect to anybody. I had the advantage of looking at all their bodies of work, going through that, learning from it, and then being able to adjust everything as need be, so I can do what I’ve done.”

Despite being the biggest star in all of professional wrestling, Roman Reigns has never been given a five-star match rating by Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer. Reigns believes his matches are more about emotion and moments than cool-looking moves.

“I look at the moves as vehicles to trigger emotion,” Reigns says. “Moves, especially the cool ones, they’re little micro moments in their own right. But in order to be remembered, you have to have the ability to make people feel. For me, the main thing is, how do you move people? Because a really cool move isn’t going to make people stand up, isn’t going to make people cry, isn’t going to make people get angry. You have to create those human connections.

“The moves are just the moves,” Reigns continues. “That’s why everybody who’s ever been in my position or considered a great, we’ve only got a few of them. We go out there and we know what buttons to push for our crowd and we create that emotional connection.”
