For nearly three years, Roman Reigns has reigned over the WWE as its most formidable villain. However, his sights may be set on a different objective: transforming himself into the top ‘good guy’ in all of WWE.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE has aspirations to convert Roman Reigns form the top heel in the company, into a larger-than-life hero and fan favorite.
As this the Bloodline story unfolds, Reigns is expected to engage in intense rivalries with his stablemates, and eventually reignite his WrestleMania feud with Cody Rhodes. But these are mere stepping stones towards the ultimate destination—the downfall of a villainous Reigns and the ascent of the most revered, virtuous figure in the entire WWE universe.
”The angle remains the focal point of the company and has plenty of twists and turns left. There is who Jey Uso sides with that can be dragged out, the inevitable Sikoa and Reigns feud, more with Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes way down the line, and in the end, the Reigns babyface turn in the role as the all-time legend, which it seems these past few years is grooming him to be, and the special attraction superhero babyface for the big shows.”
Reigns as the ultimate good guy has been tried before. From 2014 to 2020, Roman Reigns was propelled into the spotlight as the chosen successor to John Cena. With high expectations, he engaged in epic clashes against the likes of Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker. However, despite the grandeur of these feuds, fans remained unconvinced and unswayed. It was the unforgettable moment of his heel turn that propelled Reigns to unparalleled success, showcasing his exceptional skills both inside the ring and on the microphone.
In recent years, he has ascended to a whole new level, establishing himself as the undisputed leader in WWE. Throughout his reign of over 1,000 days as the premier champion, Reigns has claimed his status as the industry’s biggest attraction, captivating audiences worldwide. Surprisingly, even as villains, Reigns and his stable, The Bloodline, have emerged as the top merchandise sellers in WWE, proving their undeniable popularity among fans.
