In a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan lavished praise on Roman Reigns, noting that The Tribal Chief would be a top star in any era of WWE.

Reigns has held the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship for 1,247 days, cementing his legacy as the fourth-longest reigning champion in company history.

Reigns’ next target is Hogan, whose first WWE title reign lasted 1,474 days.

You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Reigns’ work in WWE: “It takes a really long time to be able to transition and pivot on a dime the way he does. That’s how he paints masterpieces you’ve never seen before. He’s working on a whole different level.”

On how Roman’s father Sika influenced him: “Roman’s dad, Sika, he explained the ABCs of it all to him. Watch his matches and you can tell. You can see it in the way Roman creates emotion, understands how to make the crowd mad, and how he puts people on the edge of their seat calling for that comeback. Roman Reigns learned this all old-school from his dad, but he adapted to the newer era, too. He can do it all.”

On Reigns’ versatility: “Roman is adaptable to whoever he is wrestling. That’s important. At any moment in time, he can switch gears on you. He’s amazing, and he’d fit in any era.”
