Host Ryan Satin spoke about the extreme binary of Tribal Chief‘s popularity in WWE. A part of WWE Universe hates him, but another part of WWE does not want the title off of him. Satin thinks Reigns as a champion is very important to WWE now.

We have a very fast-food-oriented audience nowadays,” Roman responded. “It’s ‘what have you done for me lately situation. Everybody wants some kind of change as soon as they feel like they got…you know the portion that they are looking for.”

Reigns came back in WWE at last year’s SummerSlam as a heel. He claims, “(it’s) not just the performance but just the hard work and just the brainstorming and everything that goes in. To be able to develop these types of stories, and that’s where I hang my hat up right now. I’m the best storyteller in Sports entertainment today.”

We can not disagree with the Tribal Chief here. His match with John Cena at SummerSlam would definitely be the ‘biggest event of the summer’ on Sunday. Ahead of their epic showdown, Cena and Reigns have both traded massive verbal shots at each other.

Last week, their fiery face-off drew the highest viewership since 2019. The duo dropped massive names from their past like Cena’s ex Nikki Bella, former WWE champion and SHIELD member Dean Ambrose aka Jon Moxley, and more.
