Chris Jericho Compares Roman Reigns to the Rock
During the chat, the former AEW World Heavyweight Champion compared Roman Reigns to The Rock. Here is what he had to say:
“I’m a huge fan of Roman Reigns,” Jericho admitted. “I think as a heel, he’s going to leaps and bounds be better than as a babyface, which will then allow him to become a babyface, which will be leaps and bounds over being a heel.
“I love Joe; he’s a great worker. I love working with him. I probably worked with him, I don’t know, 40 times in 2016-17. We did house shows all around the world, live events all around the world, and he’s got a great personality. If you would just let Roman Reigns be himself, he’ll get over even more so.”
“He reminds me a lot of The Rock,” Jericho said. “He’s the type of guy that if you’re a guy, you want to have a beer with them. If you’re a girl, you want to go on a date with him, but he doesn’t get a chance to really show that.
“Just let him relax and be himself and I have no doubt he can be the top star in WWE for sure, which he kind of already is. But to a point where everybody knows it, and everybody agrees with it, and nobody’s complaining.”
