Roman Reigns is “hands down” the best thing in WWE right now, says CM Punk.
The Universal champion has dominated the SmackDown division since returning to SummerSlam last year.
Entertaining feuds with Jey Uso, Kevin Owens, Daniel Bryan, Edge and Cesaro made Reigns the best guy in WWE.
And his stellar work hasn’t gone unnoticed by former WWE greats CM Punk.
Speaking on the Wrestling Perspective Podcast, Punk said, “If WWE is doing something right, Roman Reigns is the only thing they’re doing right, right now.
“His character work, his in-ring stuff, everything is great, but I feel like the classic WWE, they’re still five years, 10 years behind.
“It’s something they should have done originally because they tried so hard to make this guy a babyface.
“They gave him x number of main WrestleMania events and said he’s the guy, he’s the guy and he’s never really had his moments until now.
“Maybe he needed this adversity and backlash to finally be that guy, but it’s the only thing they do right.
“What can you say wrong with what Roman Reigns is doing right now?” He is by far the best guy they have.
“When you talk about screenplays, ring work and all that, right now he’s the total package.
“For the first time in his career, and I’m not mean to Roman Reigns, I just feel like he’s finally where they pushed him to be, it only took a minute . “
