Vince McMahon is in awe of Roman Reigns; former WWE star breaks down their relationship (Exclusive)
Former WWE wrestler Lloyd Anoa'i recently spoke about why Vince McMahon was very happy with Roman Reigns.
The Tribal Chief has been the biggest star in WWE for over three years. Ever since he joined hands with Paul Heyman, Roman has ascended to the mountain top and has maintained his dominance over the entire roster. Despite the current differences within The Bloodline, Reigns is still holding on to the Undisputed WWE Universal title with no credible challenger in sight.
On a recent episode of the UnSKripted podcast, Anoa'i spoke highly of The Head of the Table. He mentioned that Roman has made the entire family proud. He even explained that higher-ups in WWE, including Vince McMahon, were happy with Reigns because he was selling out arenas week after week in his latest run as leader of The Bloodline.
"You got the man that's killing record right now. I mean, he's making our family very proud. I'm very proud of him. He got none other than Roman Reigns who is the Universal Heavyweight Champion of WWE. I mean, he's selling records. Vince McMahon and WWE, they're all happy with him because he's putting the behinds in seats and he's selling out. Friday Night SmackDowns have been sold out and have record viewings on TV since they've been doing this Bloodline angle and it's unbelievable." [From 5:20 - 6:03]
