Roman Reigns received heavy backlash in the initial stage of his career. WWE pushed Reigns to the moon without caring about the reaction of the WWE Universe. This made life difficult for Reigns as he was constantly criticized for very action he took. People even forgot the immense talent Reigns possessed.

In a recent interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Finn Balor explained how people forgot Roman’s skills back in his early days. He also added that people have finally realized the potential of Roman in the last few years.

Roman’s proven that over and again, and the masses have accepted and acknowledged that ability and growth. His presence is just unimaginable right now. “
