During a recent interview, King Woods was asked to pick a superstar who had impressed him with consistent performances at Survivor Series. He selected Roman Reigns despite his current feud with The Bloodline.
"Before you even said anything, you knew who I was gonna say, I am gonna say Roman Reigns. What was it? Was it like the first Survivor Series match he was in? He got 900 eliminations even though there were only five people on the team. I was like, "Good Lord!" And then we (New Day) wrestled them at Survivor Series when they were Shield, and they beat us at Survivor Series. So, yeah, at least in the modern-era, it is Roman Reigns," said Woods.
During the most recent Survivor Series, Reigns wrestled The New Day's Big E in a Champion vs. Champion match. The Tribal Chief emerged victorious in what turned out to be one of the better matches on the card. Reports suggested that fans were unhappy after expecting The Rock to confront Reigns during the show.
