Roman Reigns is one of the biggest wrestlers not only in WWE but in the entire industry. Because of his position in the business, it is no wonder why his opinion is valued by industry veterans as well.
In 2022, the Tribal Chief captured the WWE Championship against Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 38, which saw the former become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion. Roman has also held the Universal title for two years and has not been pinned since 2019 during a singles match against Baron Corbin. Head of the Table may be an intimidating actor, but it seems like he still cares about the well-being of his fellow stars.
In 2018, Lynch began her run as one of the top stars in WWE and earned the nickname “The Man”, which was also the nickname of wrestling legend Ric Flair. The latter attempted to trademark the term in 2019, but the conflict was resolved the following year when a Stamford-based promotion acquired the rights to the term.
In 2021, Ric Flair revealed during an interview with Conrad Thompson that he contacted Reigns about the situation. The 16-time World Champion shared that he was concerned that Reigns’ perception had changed because of what happened.
Flair said, “I was worried that I had lost the respect of Roman Reigns.” “Because when that whole ‘Man’ thing turned upside down and all that and I had to file a trademark, whatever happened, it means nothing anymore … I went straight to him. I said, ‘Hey, this Means a lot to me. I mean, you want the kids [current WWE Superstars] to wait for you to come… especially when you have a daughter who is in the most elite position. Be in.
I hate to break it to you both @BeckyLynchWWE and @taylorswift13 but I’m that guy!!! And to be the man, you must defeat the man! Wow! #Human
Looks like Roman Reigns and Ric Flair are on good terms
It looks like the two superstars have finally settled the issue, which was sparked by the Hall of Famer talking highly of the current top SmackDown star.
On an episode of his podcast To Be the Man, The Nature Boy compared Reigns and his former The Shield stablemate, Seth Rollins. Flair even claimed that the latter was a far cry from Roman’s current level.
“Look at Seth Rollins. He’s 10 different things. You know what he was best at? Being an architect. Because he’s really strong and technical in the ring. Can’t keep up. I know why, it’s all about selling merchandise. I see where he compared himself to Roman Reigns. I don’t think it’s even close.”
Due to Roman Reigns’ current status in the wrestling industry, it is no wonder why even heavyweights like Ric Flair hold his opinion highly.
