Arn Anderson on Roman Reigns: “He should have stayed a heel from the days of The Shield”

This week on the “ARN” podcast, Arn Anderson and Conrad Thompson discuss the WWE Hell in a Cell 2015 pay-per-view.

That show took place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles and featured Brock Lesnar vs. The Undertaker in the cell. The show also had Seth Rollins vs. Kane for the WWE Championship, Charlotte Flair vs. Nikki Bella, Roman Reigns vs. Bray Wyatt inside the cell and Alberto Del Rio vs. John Cena.

Arn and Conrad covered all of the matches and the big wrestling news stories from around that time.

Arn talked about the way Roman Reigns was booked in 2015 and he gave his thoughts on Roman’s current run as a heel: “There were a lot of mistakes made along the way. You have to recognize when you have a special talent come along, and it was clear to everybody that Roman Reigns was a star. When he walked in the room, every woman in the joint was turning their head. Every guy was going, Jesus Christ, who is that guy? When you have somebody special like that, you have to have a goal and a game plan for him. He should have stayed a heel from the days of The Shield when they were first brought aboard as heels. You could have turned the other two guys. You should have singled Roman out as a heel. He could have stayed a heel all this time and had one turn at the proper time that mattered. When you flip flop your personality and your characters and your heel or babyface, good guy or bad guy so many times back and forth, people can’t trust you. People can’t trust a word you say on a promo. I think he should have stayed heel and had one massive turn to turn him babyface. Hulk Hogan was a babyface his entire career. When he turned heel, it was the shot heard around the universe and it inflamed the entire industry. Roman could have been the same.”
