AEW Star Praises The Bloodline, Talks Why Roman Reigns’ Heel Turn Has Been Successful


Speaking on the most recent episode of his podcast, The Extreme Life Of Matt Hardy, the AEW explained that he believes Romans Reigns’ heel turn has been successful. 

He is The Tribal Chief and the ladder of The Bloodline. This heel turn came years after Vince McMahon refused to turn Reigns heel despite the fan backlash.

“Yeah, I think it’s been really good. I honestly believe the biggest difference in being successful as a top draw as a heel nowadays is the fans because they just understand better. It’s kind of been whittled down to a smaller niche of pro wrestling fans, and they really get what’s going on.

I remember Vince was so hesitant for so many years to turn Roman into a heel. Roman as the top babyface, which he was being pushed and promoted as during that time, I knew whenever they decided to turn him heel, because fans were already booing, they were ready and it was gonna be easy to do, and all it was gonna do ultimately was make him into a much bigger star.”
