WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle believes Roman Reigns needs new opponents.
While Reigns will be facing off against Brock Lesnar at WWE SummerSlam in a “Last Man Standing” match, Kurt Angle told NBC Sports Boston that WWE needs to begin building new opponents for the “Head of the Table.”
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On the SummerSlam main event being Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns: “I think that has a lot to do with the other promotion starting to get some momentum behind them — AEW. You know, WWE lost a lot of talent to them. They’re looking at their NXT guys and they’re going to start making those guys pretty soon. I think that they do have a habit of going back to the older guys like Brock Lesnar.”
On Roman Reigns needing new opponents: “Roman Reigns, he needs to wrestle some new talent, some NXT guys, upcoming talent that are very talented, that can match his skill… I have nothing against Brock Lesnar coming back and wrestling Roman Reigns again but it’s already been done, and you don’t want to keep doing that over and over again. You have to make new talent.”
