* {{Hunk}}: Reigns has been met with a very... ''positive'' reception from the female demographic. The ripped form, the sexy voice, and the [[WhenSheSmiles smile]] may have something to do with it. There's a group that encouraged the split-up up the Shield simply because it may have meant that he (and both of the others) would finally ditch the vests and wrestle in something a [[UnderwearOfPower little less comfortable.]] At Payback 2014, when Triple H stripped Reigns' vest and shirt off, you could definitely hear a decidedly female sigh/whimper throughout the audience. A Father's Day PSA he did definitely cements him as this.

* WouldHitAGirl: He hit Wrestling/StephanieMcMahon with a Spear at ''[=WrestleMania=] 32'' (though by accident.) Even though Stephanie is a heel, this didn't help with his XPacHeat at all.

** There's also his match with Kevin Owens in Royal Rumble 2017, where KO exploited (very well, by the way) the aspect of No-DQ in his Universal Title Defense. He had to infuse his already broad (No pun intended) wrestling arsenal with usage of weapons, such as the Brass Knuckles that Chris Jericho threw to him from inside his shark cage. The match was long and excruciating, specially for Roman Reigns, who only lost after an interference from local MonsterHeel Braun Strowman... and despite that, he still had enough energy left to participate in the main event, the Royal Rumble, as its #30 entrant, finishing as the runner-up (2014 throwback, Maybe?) before finally being eliminated by Randy Orton... and he still showed at the RAW after the PPV. You can't deny he has [[BrassBalls a lot of guts]] after all that beating!

** He was also visibly struggling to keep it together when the Raw and Smackdown Survivor Series 2016 teams faced off and Chris Jericho put James Ellsworth on [[TheDreaded the List of Jericho]]...

* TheArtifact: The only one left out of Wrestling/TheShield still using (a variation of) the Shield's theme, wearing the black paramiltary-style gear, and coming down the aisle through the crowd like the Shield used to do.

While a part of the group, Reigns was a WWE Tag Team Champion (with Rollins), tied the WWE record for most eliminations in a Wrestling/SurvivorSeries elimination match with four in 2013, and set the record for most eliminations in a Wrestling/RoyalRumble match with 12 at the 2014 match. After the dissolution of The Shield in June 2014, Reigns became a singles competitor, winning the 2015 Royal Rumble, the 2014 Superstar of the Year Slammy Award, and becoming a three time WWE World Heavyweight Champion.

** The penchant for spears and the looks (as well as the through-the-crowd entrance) of early-career Wrestling/{{Edge}}, the color, bloodline, and physical profile of [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], and athleticism to match them both. All that's missing now is the polish, both in the ring and on the mic.

* {{Expy}}: Multi-generational wrestler that first appears as part of a PowerStable, is attached to Wrestling/TripleH, later breaks away and turns face, and appears to be on the fast track to main event status... Reigns 2013-2014, or Wrestling/RandyOrton 2003-2004? He even gets over the same way. Orton had a hard time getting over as a face and thus got his main event push as a heel -- as it turns out, all he needed to do was beat up people the fans LoveToHate or had XPacHeat, like the [=McMahons=] (which is ironic because they finally got him over as a face when he was supposed to be getting over as the top ''heel''). Reigns doesn't need to be some weird fusion of [[Wrestling/DwayneJohnson The Rock]], Wrestling/JohnCena, or [[Wrestling/BryanDanielson Daniel Bryan]], all he needs to do is beat people up (and not "overcome the odds") and talk less. Hence, his NoHoldsBarredBeatdown on Wrestling/TripleH did more for him in ten minutes than the last ten months of booking beforehand.

* UnrelatedBrothers: Inverted. As a member of the [[WrestlingFamily Anoa'i clan]], he's RealLife cousins with [[DwayneJohnson The Rock]] as well as Wrestling/TheUsos, with whom The Shield established something of a rivalry, resulting in a period of time where Reigns seemingly couldn't get through a week without being matched against them. Reigns' relationship with the Anoa'i family is never brought up - not even by [[Wrestling/JohnBradshawLayfield JBL]], who ''[[ShownTheirWork always]]'' [[ShownTheirWork seems to dig up that sort of information.]] It was finally acknowledged after the 2015 Royal Rumble, where Roman claimed that he purposefully never put his family ties out there so that he could forge his own path.
