5 things we found out about Roman Reigns in 2017
"The Big Dog" is no Ronaldinho.
The WWE fans know Roman Reigns as a three-time WrestleMania main-eventer, a three-time WWE champion, a one-time Royal Rumble winner and, most recently, a Grand Slam winner.
However, as far as the man himself goes, fans know much less about Reigns, real name Leati Joseph Anoa'I, than they do about other high-profile WWE Superstars.
While some of his fellow performers plaster their social media pages with daily updates, “The Big Dog” lives a more private life and we rarely hear what he gets up to outside of the squared circle.
In this article, we look at five things that we’ve found out about WWE’s most talked-about Superstar over the last 12 months.
#5 He thinks he’s the best performer in the world
Whether he’s hated or adored, Roman Reigns is never ignored, and his recent comments about his ability as an in-ring talent caused quite a stir among wrestling fans.
Speaking to Corey Graves on WWE Network show 'Straight To The Source', Reigns was asked if he is the “top guy” in WWE right now, to which he replied: “Every day of the week. This is the top of the mountain. Point blank … period.”
The three-time WWE champion added that people only have to watch his pay-per-view matches over the last three years for proof that he is “the best performer in the world right now”.
Despite frequent fan backlash, Reigns has main-evented the last three WrestleMania shows – against Brock Lesnar, Triple H and The Undertaker – and is expected to face Lesnar again in the main event of WrestleMania 34.
