Roman Reigns is one of the most talented WWE superstars. In the ring, the powerful wrestler is an absolute beast. He is one of the most believable athletes in WWE, and no matter who he dominates, it makes complete sense to WWE fans.
But whenever Roman Reigns hits the mic and tries to talk to the WWE Universe, his reputation takes a dive. Reigns as yet has not mastered the mic, but to become the superstar he has the potential to be, Reigns has to master the art of connecting with fans on the mic.
Reigns is currently out injured after real-life hernia surgery has forced him out for the last couple of months. Taking advantage of this terrible situation for Reigns, WWE has tried to create a blessing in disguise situation by using Reigns' time away to force him to improve his acting skills by getting him to train up.
Forced to change
WWE has got Reigns to hook up with Howard Fine, who is an American acting teacher, theatre director, and author. Fine has worked with some of the best actors and actresses in Hollywood, and the teacher revealed via Twitter that he has been busy trying to improve Reigns' acting skills in the past week.

Needs to improve
Acting ability is something that is currently holding back Reigns. He has almost the whole package when it comes to what you want from a WWE superstar.
When you go through a checklist of what it takes to become a WWE superstar, Reigns has just about everything. Reigns has the size and the presence to dominate any opponent and create a spectacle for fans to drool over.
He's got strength, explosiveness, agility and the looks that make him WWE's leading man in waiting. But when he opens his mouth, the problems become evident, and these comments by PWInsider.com's Dave Scherer perfectly explain what WWE is currently trying to change about their next leading man.
"WWE feels that being more rounded as a character is something Reigns needs to work on," Scherer said.
And in time, we will see whether or not Reigns has the ability to become a WWE legend, rather than just the superstar he is right now.
