Triple H Believes Roman Reigns Is "One Of The Very Best In WWE Today”

The Game 'bigs up' The Big Dog...

Ahead of their meeting at a live event in Abu Dhabi on Friday, Triple H spoke to The National about Roman Reigns' abilities and perception within the WWE Universe.

The pair are set to go one-on-one for the first time since their main event clash at WrestleMania 32 in Dallas last year, where Reigns usurped the-then Champion Game to win his third World Title.

HHH believes The Shield member is right at the top of the pecking order in the company today despite what certain sections of the fanbase believe: "I think he is one of the best that the WWE has right now.

"Roman is in a unique position because the fanbase tends to believe that he is this chosen one that the WWE wants in this position so they choose not to accept that position. But the truth is, and some people will listen to this and want to argue against it, but honestly most of the people who argue against it aren’t qualified to make that argument. I am. Roman is one of the most skilled performers bar none in the WWE right now and that is on every level."

Headlining the December 8 show at Zayed Sports City Tennis Stadium, the 14-time World Champion is relishing the opportunity to get back in the ring with the current Intercontinental Champion, who defeated Jason Jordan in an excellent encounter on last night's Raw.

Despite countless performances of that standard over the past few years, The Executive Vice President of more things than I've had hot dinners believes Reigns still has to win certain fans over: “It is funny that Roman goes to the ring every night and there is a decision being made whether they want to boo him or cheer him depending on where you are and depends on what is done.

"But usually by the end of the night, because he works so hard and he is so good at what he does he wins them over. That has been the trend recently, as you saw with John Cena, as you see with others. He is a skilled guy in the ring, no matter how you break it down. I would consider him to be one of the very best in the WWE today.”
