Tommy Dreamer Says He's A Roman Reigns Supporter, Wants Reigns To Be Like Mike Tyson, More

Tommy Dreamer has been a little bit of everywhere. A long stint in ECW, a long stint in WWE, a run in TNA, and even back to the WWE again. He's seen a lot of top stars come and go, but one he seems to be impressed by is Roman Reigns.


The former ECW Champion appeared on Sirus XM's Busted Open Nation and explained why he enjoys the current WWE World Heavyweight Champion's work so much, and what helps him do that work.

"I'm a huge Roman Reigns supporter" Dreamer said. "I was there live in Florida on a house show, him and Sheamus, and I cannot praise Sheamus enough for being a great heel. Everyone's talking about, 'Oh, Roman Reigns and the Wyatts pairing together', but you got to have great heels to actually work with that. Sheamus, Del Rio, and Rusev. who I'm big fans of, the bad guys. Think about it, the people are going to be on their feet for all of those matches. For the haters, to see AJ Styles win. We work for the reactions and we work for people talking about it the next day. I watched (Reigns) and Sheamus work about 25 minutes on a Sunday show and they had a WrestleMania match and the people were so into it. Then and there, I was like, 'That guy is pure money'. I saw it live and I just watched it and I totally saw why he's the man and he should be the man," Dreamer said.

While Dreamer thinks that Reigns is worthy of the spot he's reached in the WWE, he isn't too naive to believe that the already 3-time champion could be knocked off at any moment. The WWE has several stars set to return in the coming months. Dreamer also said that he hopes Reigns adopts a bit of a Mike Tyson persona.

"Guess what?," Dreamer asked. "We got Seth Rollins eventually going to come back, Randy Orton ? you think of all these people who're going to try to knock the man off his perch. I wish he went out there and talked like Mike Tyson, who couldn't really cut a strong promo because of the way he actually spoke. You'd be like, 'Oh, I could kick that man's butt. Listen to how he talks', but yet Mike Tyson was the baddest man on the planet. If they kind of went that way with Roman Reigns, when you think about it, we loved to hate Mike Tyson and then we just loved Mike Tyson. It's an interesting time for the Roman Reigns lovers and haters. I'm a Roman Reigns lover."
