‘The Nature Boy’ Ric Flair has seen it all in his five decades in this business, in the recent interview he spoke about how WWE failed to handle Roman Reigns after he defeated The Undertaker at Wrestlemania 33.
Flair said, “All I thought about was, “God dang, Roman just got the hottest tag in the history of the business! To me, when Mark hauled up his stuff, put it in the middle of the ring, and walked out. The next day, on Raw, Roman couldn’t talk! ‘I thought to myself, man, I’ve been in a lot in my life but if I’d have that hot tag brother, I could’ve rode that forever. ‘I don’t know what happened! But that was the hottest tag in the history of the business! That’s made the thing with Brock beating him pale, in terms of emotion!'”
WWE might have set Reigns to be a heel by having him say ‘This is my yard’ may have dropped the ball on him.
