Well, we agree with Roman on this!
Although Roman Reigns wasn’t the winner in 2017 as Randy Orton eliminated the big dog, no one can deny that Reigns gave him a tough fight. He even eliminated The Undertaker in the match.
If we look back to the last five years, as claimed by the Royal Rumble wrestler, we cannot forget that Roman Reigns won the Royal Rumble 2015 by eliminating former WWE star Rusev. Although after 2015, he has not won for a single time, one can not deny that he has put up a great show.
In 2016, he finished third after eliminating five wrestlers. In 2018, he utilized expertly in another second-place wrap up to create uneasiness ahead of Shinsuke Nakamura’s epic babyface victory.
In 2019, Roman Reigns didn’t participate, while in 2020, he ended up being a runner up.
Such a track record surely makes him one of the most important Royal Rumble competitors. It would be interesting to see him perform in Royal Rumble 2021. We hope he wins this time and proves that he is the most important competitor.
