“The Match Was Outstanding” – WWE Hall of Famer Praises Roman Reigns For His Survivor Series Showdown

November 28, 2020 5:30 pm

WWE Survivor Series took place last week. It was well-noted for the final farewell of The Undertaker, but also had six matches for brand supremacy on the card. Roman Reigns walked out as the top champion in his battle against Drew McIntyre, and the battle between the two is still being talked about days after the event.


JBL praises Roman Reigns and Drew McIntyre

WWE Hall of Famer JBL joined WWE’s The Bump a few days back where Kayla Braxton asked who impresses him the most in WWE. JBL instantly responded with the Universal Champion Roman Reigns’ name.

JBL said, “I think the thing that has impressed me the most and is by far and above and is better than anything I’ve seen in maybe the last twenty years is Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns, to me, is the most compelling character I’ve seen on television I think in twenty years. It’s unbelievable how good he is. That character, the way it’s just transitioned and become this, the head of the table, I’m a huge fan. It’s unbelievable how good he is.”

Matt Camp also asked JBL his takeaway from the Survivor Series match between Universal Champion Roman Reigns and WWE Champion Drew McIntyre. ‘The Wrestling God’ had some high praise for both champions.

“To me, it lived up to every bit of the hype. Which is hard to do when you talk about having a true heavyweight matchup like they had. You had two great champions. And both of those guys are in the prime of their life, the absolute best condition of their life, and they put on a show that you would hope that they would be able to do. But I don’t know if people really expected something that great, I thought the match was outstanding.”

JBL made some really valid points on how good of a match both men delivered. It is highly unlikely to see a heavyweight clash that gives you so much of a thrill as a viewer. Both men have worked and earned the position they’re at currently. The last time these two met, it didn’t feel like a big deal. This time, it definitely did!
