For the past two years Roman Reigns has been literally the protagonist and main wrestler not only of Friday Night Smackdown. An incredible series of victories, a title reign that has lasted for over 450 days and a record still in the crosshairs.
Just over a month and a half away and Roman Reigns could beat Brock Lesnar for the longest titled reign ever, yet another reign in a career that sees the Head of the Table as the true star of the company. In recent weeks, however, there has been discussions about the future of Roman Reigns and among the various hypotheses there has also been talk of a scenario bordering on the incredible.
During the last episode of Smackdown Roman Reigns talked about his ride, remembering his numbers but at the same time stating that, sooner or later, his adventure in WWE and in general in the world of wrestling could end and maybe only at that point.
According to Roman, people might recognize it. Here are his specific words: "I am the greatest of all time. When my days here are over, this may come sooner or later, the whole world will recognize me." What everyone is referring to is the passage of the WWE star in Hollywood with Reigns who would be ready by now to follow in the footsteps of a star like The Rock, John Cena and Batista.
In a recent interview, during an appearance on the Michael Kay Show, Roman Reigns talked about a possible move from Wrestling to Hollywood. Here are his words: "Well, we have to see. I think there may be some interesting moves in that direction soon.
There are speculations and things to see about contracts, you have to go deep into this sector and I'm ready to try my hand. This thing is something where I definitely want to gain more experience, WWE has done me good and has given me so much, it has put so many opportunities in front of me that I had to pick up.
I like to think that along the way I have acquired many skills and these will also help me in the future."
The Undertaker: "Difficult to have the same success in social media world"
The Undertaker was perhaps the most iconic character to ever set foot in WWE.
The Deadman has managed to transcend wrestling to become a true legend in every corner of the world. The Gravedigger has contributed more than any other to the spread of wrestling outside the US borders. Over the years, his appearances in the ring have become more and more sporadic and limited to WrestleMania.
The Phenom is the absolute symbol of the Showcase of the Immortals, where his legendary 'Streak' was born. Barring sensational and unlikely twists, Taker played his last match against AJ Styles at WrestleMania 36. Within the The Last Ride docu-series, the seven-time world champion has admitted that he is no longer able to sustain the efforts required by this business.
His official retirement took place at the 2020 Survivor Series, where his extraordinary epic had begun 30 years earlier. Kevin Hart's guest in the latest edition of the 'Cold as Balls' show, Undertaker has revealed some secrets relating to his famous gimmick.
The Undertaker said: "If my character was born in the age of social media, it would have been much more difficult for me to have the same success. Nowadays, you can't go out on the street without someone taking a picture of you and posting it on various social networks.!" Taker wrote indelible pages of history at WrestleMania: "For our industry, WrestleMania is the NFL's equivalent of the Super Bowl.
You work hard all year to get ready for that appointment. Being included in the Mania card is the goal of any wrestler. You can ask whoever you want, everyone will answer that it is their biggest dream. Is it possible for me to return to the ring? It is now clear that I am no longer able to perform at the highest level. I could go into the ring and play a match, but I wouldn't be able to give people what they expect of me."
