During an appearance on Keepin’ It 100 (via Fightful), Chris Jericho spoke about Roman Reigns’ current run as a heel in the WWE and said he’s not surprised that Roman is ‘killing it’.

He said: “I haven’t (watched) but I’ve been reading about it and it’s no surprise. When I was there in 2016 and work with Roman, basically all around the world when I was a heel and he was a babyface, I was like, ‘there’s no brainer here.’ I always said this, and he’s doing it now, if you just drop the fucking script and let him be him, he’s cool-hand luke. He’s like the coolest cat, a fucking great guy. Just let him be him. Obviously, with the heelish slant, which is great. When he eventually turns babyface, he’ll be even bigger than he is now because he’s just a cool, cool guy and now they’re letting him do all this stuff. It doesn’t surprise me that he’s killing it because he’s that good of a performer.
