Vince McMahon's view of Roman Reigns following Braun Strowman's huge popularity


Love him or hate him - and it's normally the latter if you're anything above a child - WWE fans can't help but talk about Roman Reigns.

The Big Dog has been in the main event of WrestleMania for the last four years in a row and he is already a three-time world champion in the WWE, a grand slam champion and a Royal Rumble winner - and he only turns 33 later this month.

WWE fans, for the most part, feel like the former Shield member has been forced down their throats as Vince McMahon insists on Reigns being the focal point as the company and it's top babyface star.

As the heir to John Cena's throne, it seems as though he is impervious to being turned heel and that has only frustrated fans more.

In the meantime, Braun Strowman has steadily transitioned from a monster heel to a, well, monster babyface.

There's no denying that the Monster Among Men has become one of, if not the most popular performer in the company and fans are pining for him to get his hands on the Universal Championship.

With Strowman winning the Greatest Royal Rumble in Saudi Arabia, it seems as though the WWE is planning on giving the big man the push the fans want, but what does that mean for Reigns.

According to Brad Shepard of, while Vince has a major interest in Braun, nothing is going to dissuade him from positioning Reigns as the WWE's poster boy.


“People were wondering, ‘is Roman Reigns still the guy in the eyes of WWE and Vince McMahon?’ Of course, Vince is very high on Braun and I was told Vince has taken a personal interest in Braun’s success. But as for who ‘the guy’ is there’s been no indication internally that it’s no longer Roman Reigns.”

To be fair, there is room for them both in the WWE and with the likes of Daniel Bryan, Seth Rollins and AJ Styles all seriously over as babyfaces, McMahon has options to play with.

However, moving Reigns out of the main event for WrestleMania might serve them well for next year and Strowman is certainly the superstar with all the momentum right now. He deserves to have the ball and run with it.
