The Anoa'i family is what most wrestling fans refer to as wrestling royalty, and they've given birth to some of the greatest Samoan wrestlers ever. Arguably, the greatest from this dynasty is Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who's mother and grandfather (Peter Maivia) are part of the Anoa'i family.
Other notable members of the Anoa'i family are Jimmy and Jey Uso (Sons of Rikishi), Rikishi, Rosey, Manu, Safu, Umaga/Jamal, Yokozuna, Sika, and Afa. You should see a pattern here, they're all former champions of some sort and Hall of Famers.
Roman Reigns, the Samoan Superman and former member of The Shield, has accomplished a lot in his career since debuting back in 2010.
His list of accomplishments include FCW Florida Tag Team Championship, Tag Team of the Year (2013 with Seth Rollins) and Ranked No. 7 out of 500 for best singles wrestler by Pro Wrestling Illustrated, Most Improved (2013) and Tag Team of the Year (2013 with Seth Rollins by Wrestling Observer Newsletter, WWE Tag Team Championship (With Seth Rollins), Royal Rumble Winner 2015.
It is very apparent that the WWE holds a lot of stock and value in Reigns, and he has proven himself time and and time again.
Other notable accomplishments involve him beating and setting a new record for Royal Rumble eliminations in a match. But why has the company not allowed Roman Reigns to win the WWE Heavyweight Championship yet?
Main Eventing WrestleMania
Upon winning the Royal Rumble, Reigns was immediately thrust into the main event of WrestleMania 31, even despite controversy from The Authority. Fans were real hesitant, over whether he was ready for this or not. Reigns is a talented wrestler, but he lacks in certain areas.
Reigns has the strength and power in the ring, he's proven that time and time again but the biggest thing that he is lacking in is his mic skills. He's mediocre on the mic, which is a surprise given that he is related to the strongest mic user the WWE has ever had.
Another problem that the fans have with Reigns, is it's obvious that the company is pushing him because he has the classic look that they want for their Champion. I'll give you some insight, wrestling fans don't like being told what to like and what not to like.
Stop pushing Reigns down their throat, stop confiscating the Anti-Reigns signs at live events, and just let things happen naturally. His cousin, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson didn't become a hit overnight. It took The Rock man years and a major heel turn to win the love and adoration of the fans, The Rock was also terrible on the mic to begin with as well.
Rise of the Roman Empire and Future WWE Champion
While I have no doubt that Roman Reigns is a future major, main eventer and even future WWE Champion, it's just not what is best for business right now. They need to focus on getting him built up on the mic and then put him into the running for another title.
Reigns has not held any WWE title besides the WWE Tag Team Championship, it just screams Company Golden Boy. It's common knowledge that as a superstar is paving his way, he usually wins the United States Championship first before moving onto the Intercontinental Championship, which proves that they are ready for the main event picture and the most prestigious title of them all.
Both the United States Championship picture and the Intercontinental Championship picture has plenty of talented and strong superstars for him to feud with and hone his skills with. Actually, most of the superstars that are in both of those title pictures are superstars that he's feuded with as part of The Shield, and it would be great to see him come back to some of those feuds, before he picks up a major win like the WWE Heavyweight Championship.
So sound off in the comments below, let us know your thoughts and opinions on Roman Reigns. Do you love him? Do you hate him? Does he deserve the WWE Title this early in his career or should he have to work his way through the other championships first?
