After three consecutive victories at WrestleManias, WWE Intercontinental Champion Roman Reigns is not lacking in terms of confidence.
On the debut episode of WWE Network Straight to the Source with Corey Graves (not Sean Rueter of CagesideSeats.com) on Monday night, Reigns offered a high self-assessment: "You know, Right Now I'm the best player in the world in the ring, you can go to my games and my pay-per-views in the last three years and you can say I'm an idiot or you can say: "Man, he has a point," You know what I mean? "
When Graves asked him if he was the best player in the WWE, Reigns replied," Every day of the week. "
It's been evident to the Last years, WWE has been preparing the Big Dog to take over John Cena as the company's undisputed franchise.
That started at WrestleMania 31 when Reigns faced Brock Lesnar in the main event, and has since continued with Reigns defeating Triple H to close WrestleMania 32 and delivering The Undert aker only the second WrestleMania loss of his career at WrestleMania 33.  Reigns recently beat The Miz for the IC title, but the general expectation is that he will be in the mix of the main event with another Immortals Show at the form of WrestleMania 34 next year in New Orleans.
There's no doubt that it's based on the way Reigns positions himself that he's the WWE man, but his statement that he's the best ring worker in the world could cause an uproar among purist wrestlers.
AJ Styles, Seth Rollins and Finn Balor are widely considered to be the best performers in the ring at WWE, while Kenny Omega and Kazuchika Okada received worldwide recognition for their exhibitions at New Japan Pro Wrestling.
Reigns has organized some memorable and entertaining games in recent years, however, they include fights with Lesnar, Styles and Daniel Bryan, among others.
Regardless of whether the wrestling masses agree with Reigns, WWE clearly believes that it has a megastar in its hands, and he will continue to be presented as such in the years to come.
