WWE Hall of Famer Stone Cold Steve Austin is undoubtably one of the company’s greatest stars in their history, having been the face of their most iconic era, and thus its fair to say he knows a thing or two about having the it factor.
Speaking to Sportskeeda, Austin was asked if he acknowledges the current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. Austin highlighted that whilst it took a while for Reigns to find his feet on his own, he’s now on top of the world.
“I’ll acknowledge that he’s doing some amazing work. It took a while for him to put all the pieces of the puzzle together, and they didn’t book him in the greatest fashion at certain points of his career, but when he walked through the door, he was one of those guys that had that look and had that it factor. Like, if we can do the right thing with this guy, he’s gonna get over here. They finally started doing the right thing. He got to a mindset of where he’s at right now, and he’s just crushing it, and I couldn’t be prouder.”-Steve Austin
Austin then gave his verdict on the Bloodline as a whole, praising the Usos in particular, labelling them as one of the greatest tag teams on the planet.
“All those Samoans can work their asses off. The Usos are just killing it. Jimmy and Jey, they were kind of like just a tag team, but now they’re a tag team with an identity and character, The Bloodline. So they’re great as a unit and they’re all related, but Jimmy and Jey just in and of themselves as The Usos, they are a thing now. They are a force to be reckoned with. They’re one of the best tag teams on planet Earth right now.”-Steve Austin
Reigns’ is set to defend both the WWE and Universal Championships against Drew McIntyre at the upcoming Clash at the Castle premium live events in Cardiff, Wales, in what is sure to be a historic event for the company.
