Roman Reigns... Ooh la la
At First Sight...
Mmmmmm Roman Reigns... Who is he? That was my first thought before I started harassing my nephew with questions about who he is. There I was in a full house, holiday weekend, and a living room full of young boys; they were all watching Saturday night slam, while emulating the moves being made. Funny how the WWE clearly states to children NOT to try this at home, and that's exactly what my nephews were doing. I used to be a wrestling fan in the late 90's, but lately nothing has really caught my attention. Suddenly my eye caught a glimpse of this long haired, 6'4", 265 lbs man with a beautiful face... My initial reaction: Ooh la la! My sister and I gave each other this look as though we both knew exactly what one another was thinking. At first sight I knew a star was in the making. Many might agree with me in regards to Reigns being the new face in wrestling, and all should. What do you think?
Future WWE superstar
Roman Reigns made his mark at the Survivor Series 2013, when he dominated the ring and demonstrated his great potential, and possibly even being one of the better performers from his tag team "The Shield". With his spear (professional wrestling offensive move), Reigns has pinned such wrestlers like Rey Mysterio and Dolph Ziggler to name a few... I believe he will soon be the new face of the WWE. His handsome, yet mystique look will win the hearts of many ladies; that is when good things will start to happen for Reigns. With his great looks, pro wrestling family background, and amazing talent, he will go far and rise above beyond many expectations.. The WWE is in desperate need of a young, up and coming fresh look that will Reign the ring...
Who is Roman Reigns
So right away I researched everything on this fairly new wrestler. His name is Leati Joseph Anoa'i, born May 25, 1985. He was born in Pensacola, FL and is of Samoan descent. The last name Anoa'i originates from a family of pro wrestlers, all from Somoa. His father Sika Anoa'i and brother Afa Anoa'i composed the tag team "Wild Samoans". Coming from a large family of professional wrestlers, he finally made his debut on September 9, 2010, when the WWE signed him into the Developmental Territory Florida Championship Wrestling. However, before he became a wrestler he was playing football for Georgia Tech. Roman Reigns made his main debut on November 18, 2012 at the Survivor Series. He is a part of the tag team named The Shield, with fellow wrestlers Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins.
