“Hacksaw” Jim Duggan Explains Problems With Roman Reigns

WWE Hall of Fame
It’s no secret the WWE wants to make Roman Reigns the next face of the company, yet he’s having trouble connecting with the audience. “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan was on Jim Ross’ podcast this week to discuss why Reigns isn’t working.

“They’re pushing him down the folks’ throat,” said Duggan. “Take your time […] He’s got that marquee type [of] appeal if the people accept him. How do you do that? I can’t tell you. You can’t coach that. It’s something that some people have.”

The WWE Hall of Famer believes Reigns has the appeal when it comes to appearance, but he’s missing the “it factor.”

    Reigns is Diesel. Got the look but lacks in performance.

    Rollins is Shawn Michaels. Can put on a classic bout with just about anybody and has a cocky attitude to boot.

    Ambrose is Razor Ramon. Coolest personality, tough as nails, and most imitated/reacted by the crowd.

    Agree with u !!

    He’s John Cena at the start of his career. WWE just isn’t lettin him develop his character swag like they did Cena. He’s Steve Austin when Austin was n WCW. He needs the right creative to take off the corporate baby face image nd let him be the Samoan Bad Ass face.. he can easily do that and ppl will connect if they do that.

      ???????? Delusional

      • Xavier Reighn

        That’s ur opinion nd it’s fine. But watching wrestling for over the past 20 years it’s not delusional.. go back to Cena’s beginning he was a joke. But he was given room to develop. Austin was part of the Hollywood Blonde’s in WCW which was a joke gimmick. He came to WWE as the Ringmaster nd that gimmick got stale so they flipped to a bad ass Texan who was dynamic. But it took developing. Reigns has all the talent he lacks the mic skills but if they let his actions speak the mic can be worked on.

          For the love of God don’t put him in the same class as Cena or Stone Cold especially if you’re a 20 year fan you should know better

          • Xavier Reighn

            For the love of God read what the hell I said and stop being so damn sarcastic.. I said he is Cena at the beginning of his career and Austin when he was n WCW. I kno what the hell I’m saying. Anyway.. I guess u can’t really understand what I’m saying. Have a great day sir.

            Nope I understand just fine see my problem with your point is the guys you named all had an organic rise and over time began to raise the bar as the competition elevated. Roman was force fed to fans for the last 3 years and still hasn’t managed to get over with fans and since WWE continues to ignore it this is only hurting Roman.Also let me point out you said the “beginning” of their careers hasn’t Roman been running the same gimmick for the last 5 years ? Better yet can you name 5 top tier talents that Reigns is better than ? Don’t worry I’ll wait …….
