During a recent appearance on Busted Open Radio, Magnum T.A. lavished praise on Roman Reigns and cited him as the perfect example of how to become more popular than ever in today’s non-kayfabe environment.
You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:
On talent being able to get more over in today’s environment: “I think today, if someone had that belief in the system and was dedicated enough to it, and was given an opportunity, you could get over today bigger than anybody’s ever been over in the last 20 years. Everybody knows it’s a work, but you could, hands down, walk into a program and convince them that it’s a shoot.”
On the potential of Roman Reigns to get even more over than he is: “They could work a program that made it look like he went off-script and flipped, and just said, ‘You know what? I am the world champion, and I’ll hold it as long as I want to, and somebody is going to have to come take it from me, because I’m not giving it up.’”
NFL star Najee Harris appeared in the ring at a CMLL show at Arena Mexico on Tuesday night. The Pittsburgh Steelers running back accepted a Lucha mask from Atlantis and came down to the ring.
The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently in Mexico promoting the NFL’s deal to host regular season games there. WPXI is reporting that the Pittsburgh Steelers are likely to play a game in the country in 2025.

Next Saturday is truly my biggest test to date, I can either slay a legendary dragon or go after what’s rightfully mine.#johnnymoran #moran #johnny #followyourbliss #powerlifting #ink #bodybuilding #fitness #tattoos #inkman #tatts #inktattoo #wrestling #trending #viral #olr pic.twitter.com/rPozXCnjfR
