The Mount Rushmore of pro-wrestling is a very short list, consisting of the absolute best in the business. Although the list differs from person to person, there are a handful of legends who are a lock on every fan's list.
Ric Flair, Hulk Hogan, The Rock, Stone Cold Steve Austin and John Cena are some names that have revolutionised sports entertainment in more ways than one. Flair is perhaps the greatest technical wrestler of all time, having won a whopping 16 World titles in the process. Hogan is a world-renowned icon who is famous for bringing wrestling and Hollywood together.
Rock and Austin are hailed by many as two superstars without whom, the WWE would have lost the Monday Night Wars against WCW. Cena has been the cornerstone of the WWE for a better part of the 21st century.
A couple from now, another name is bound to join this elite list. That name is Roman Reigns. Let's take a look at three reasons why Reigns will end up being one of the greatest superstars of all time.
#3 A world-renowned name
Thanks to social media, wrestling is reaching more people than ever in the history of the business. Much like the Rock 'N' Wrestling Era and the Attitude Era, wrestling is breaking barriers and attaining mainstream coverage on a regular basis.
So it shouldn't come as a surprise that Reigns is one of the most recognisable WWE faces on the planet at the moment. With WWE's annual tours to places like Saudi Arabia and the United Kingdom, the Top Dog is being exposed to a worldwide audience at an astonishing pace.
India is one of those nations that the WWE is trying its best to capture the market in. Although they still haven't fully succeeded in doing that, Reigns has certainly managed to woo the Indian audience with his patented moves.
As wrestling becomes more mainstream with each passing day, the biggest superstar of this era will gain more recognition. By the end of Roman's storied career, he could quite possibly achieve the level of popularity the likes of Cena and Hogan enjoyed.
