Karrion Kross has acknowledged “The Tribal Chief” Roman Reigns.
When Kross returned to WWE a few months ago, he had a staredown with Reigns after laying out Drew McIntyre. Reigns has been the Universal Champion since August 2020 and the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion since WrestleMania 38.
At Saturday’s Extreme Rules, Kross beat McIntyre in a Strap Match. After the show, while speaking with The Ringer Wrestling Show, Kross compared Reigns to legendary wrestler Bruno Sammartino.
“I feel like everyone should wanna be in the ring with Roman Reigns. For me, I hope nobody minds that I’m comparing him, but, to me, he’s our modern-day Bruno. Like, what he’s doing right now, in my opinion, is historic for our company’s history. This art of storytelling. It’s an amazing thing, and it’s going very well. People are having fun. They’re enjoying what they’re watching. It’s something different every week, I could go on and on. That’s the guy that I’d wanna be in the ring with.”
