Kenji Explains It All: 26th March ’16

Ever since last WrestleMania, the story has been that Roman Reigns has been repeatedly screwed out of getting the WWE World Heavyweight Title. As Michael Cole puts it, he’s always the bridesmaid, never the bride. He keeps getting so, so close, yet fails to win the big one – or can’t keep it once he has it.

The big problem with this narrative is that most of the things that “screwed” Roman out of his title were legal, and as the commentary loves to remind us, it’s having the title that’s important, not how you get it. Isn’t “overcoming the odds” practically a champion’s job description?
