New WWE video makes Roman Reigns look strong

WWE’s latest “Things” video (it used to be “Five Things” when Tom Phillips did them; under Corey Graves they’ve gotten more flexible about the number... and, I officially know way too much about WWE YouTube series) will probably rile some people up.

Because it’s about Roman Reigns, and everything about the Big Dog riles some people up. It’s understandable, too. It often does feel like the company goes out of their way to hype “The Guy” - even beyond their promotional responsibility to do so.

Is this one of those times? You decide.

Here are the four “remarkable records already broken by Roman Reigns”:

- Going undefeated in six-man tag matches for six months after The Shield debuted. Not counting a disqualification loss in May, the trio of Reigns, Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins went 12 - 0 from November 2012 until June 2013, when Team Hell No & Randy Orton beat them on SmackDown with Daniel Bryan forcing Rollins to tap.

- Tying the most eliminations in a traditional, five-on-five Survivor Series match when he eliminated Jimmy Uso, Cody Rhodes, Goldust & Rey Mysterio in 2013 as the sole survivor on the winning Shield/Real Americans team.

- Most eliminations (12) in a Royal Rumble match in his 2014 debut. In dropping that stat, Graves also reminds us that Roman’s been in the final three of the last four Rumble matches (aka every Rumble he’s ever entered).

- Main eventing the largest WrestleMania in history last year at AT&T Stadium.
