Mark Henry on Roman Reigns: I don't think he completely believes in himself yet

Talk of Roman Reigns' ascension to the top spot in WWE has waned in recent weeks, due in large part to his performance at WrestleMania 31 and the fact that Seth Rollins seemingly took his spot, if only for a while. But that doesn't mean it's gone away completely.

In an interview with the Miami Herald, Mark Henry, who has been used to get Reigns over on his way to the top, had this to say about the budding superstar:

"I think Roman has a really high ceiling. I don't think he completely believes in himself yet. Once you get off autopilot and you believe in you and what you are and what your skill set is...He is going to be a world champion."

What's interesting about Reigns is that fan backlash has lessened with each strong pay-per-view (PPV) outing. He tore the house down in the main event of Fastlane with Daniel Bryan, was outstanding opposite Brock Lesnar in the same spot at WrestleMania, and surprised the world with a great Last Man Standing match with Big Show at Extreme Rules.

If he still doesn't fully believe in himself like Henry suggests, how much better will it be when he finally does?
