In an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, The Undertaker gave high praise to Roman Reigns.
The future WWE Hall of Famer put him over for his current heel run as Universal Champion.
I’m so proud of where he is, The night of Survivor Series [in November], I went up to Roman and Jey and said, ‘This is the most compelling story that we’ve done in a while.’ And where he’s been able to take it, it’s so good. It’s not forced. Roman is hitting on all cylinders.
I think he’s a great heel—coldhearted, calculated,” The Undertaker stated. “There is a compelling backstory and you still feel the tension when Roman appears. Like I said, I’m really proud of him. I wish I had the gas in the tank to work a program with him now. It would definitely be something special.”
