Chris Jericho Compares Roman Reigns to the Rock
Chris Jericho sat down with Alex McCarthy of talkSPORT on Inside The Ropes.
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.”
