It has been quite the rise to the top of the WWE ladder for former Shield member Roman Reigns.
"The Big Dog" made his WWE main roster debut as a member of The Shield, alongside fellow NXT alumni Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose, where they interrupted a Triple Threat Match for the WWE Championship by Powerbombing Ryback into an announce table, assisting then-champion CM Punk in retaining his title with a pinfall victory over John Cena.
After a good run as a stable, the three men disbanded and embarked on singles careers, where each saw a tremendous amount of success.
Ambrose has gone on to hold the Intercontinental Championship multiple times as well as having won the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. Rollins has also won the World Heavyweight Title, while Reigns has also had his fair share of World Title reigns as well as being thrusted into the top spot in the company.
Many who have seen Reigns rise to the top seem to dislike him, claiming that his in-ring work is repetitive while his looks and size are what mainly got him where he is today. Despite the negative reactions from fans, Reigns is still pushed as the top man in the industry and has also been built as the only man who has a legitimate shot at defeating current Universal Champion "The Beast" Brock Lesnar.
It seems as though it is only a matter of time before Reigns gains control of the Universal Title and takes Lesnar's spot as the most dominant Superstar on the roster.
Former RAW Women's Champion Sasha Banks recently did some media work in Australia where she visited the Victoria Zoo. While there, "The Boss" was asked to name the Superstar that she thinks is the best in the WWE. She named Reigns along with AJ Styles and Cesaro as her picks, and claimed that a lot of guys are 'jealous' of "The Guy" (quotes via IWNerd):
“I love Roman Reigns. Whether you guys love him, boo him, hate him – I think all the guys are jealous of him. He is an incredible athlete. He’s one to watch. He does it and kills it every single week”
“Of course, I have to say Cesaro. I watch his stuff and I go, “How do you think of that?” He’s so strong… Let me choose someone on SmackDown… of course, AJ Styles.
"He is legit phenomenal, I’m just like in awe every time I see him wrestle. He’s so sweet… he’s my Uncle Allen. What’s up, Unc? You good?”
