WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns is in the midst of an all-time run. The Head of the Table has held the Universal Title for nearly two years and unified it with the WWE Championship at WrestleMania 38.

The Tribal Chief's mission is clear every time he steps into the ring: he wants everyone to "acknowledge him." He demands it from the crowd in every city WWE goes to.

WWE fans are actually starting to acknowledge the talent of Reigns. After years of WWE trying, without shame, to push a corporate version of Reigns to the moon, the company finally let him try his own thing and it has worked wonders.

The WWE Undisputed Universal Champion is even drawing praise from the legends that came before him.

Putting It All Together

WWE Hall of Famer "Stone Cold Steve Austin" recently spoke to Sportskeeda's Bill Apter. In the interview, Austin praised the work Reigns is doing, even though it took some time for this all to come together.

"I'll acknowledge that he's doing some amazing work. It took a while for him to put all the pieces of the puzzle together, and they didn't book him in the greatest fashion at certain points of his career, but when he walked through the door, he was one of those guys that had that look and had that it factor," Austin said.

"Like, if we can do the right thing with this guy, he's gonna get over here. They finally started doing the right thing. He got to a mindset of where he's at right now, and he's just crushing it, and I couldn't be prouder.”

'They're Killing It'

Austin also had praise for the other members of The Bloodline, Jimmy and Jey Uso. They are currently the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions.

"The Usos are just killing it. Jimmy and Jey, they were kind of like just a tag team, but now they're a tag team with an identity and character, The Bloodline," Austin said.

"So they're great as a unit and they're all related, but Jimmy and Jey just in and of themselves as The Usos, they are a thing now. They are a force to be reckoned with. They're one of the best tag teams on planet Earth right now."

Praise For Roman's Foe

Austin not only praised Reigns and his family members but also Reigns' next challenger. Austin complimented Drew McIntyre and Sheamus in the interview with Apter. McIntyre will challenge Reigns in Cardiff, Wales at Clash At The Castle for the Undisputed Titles.

"Drew and Sheamus headlined the card and they had a tremendous main event," Austin said. "They went probably at least 20 minutes, almost like an anything goes match, and they tore the house down. They were a great main event and everybody loved it. Drew McIntyre is still doing great things. Hell, Sheamus, I love where they've got him figured right now."

'Future Hall Of Famers'

Austin went further with his praise for Sheamus and McIntyre, saying that both will be enshrined in the WWE Hall of Fame when they hang up their boots.

"They came back after [a recent] match and said, 'Hey, what do you think?'" Austin said. "I said, 'Come on, guys. Y'all got 40 years of experience between you. Y'all have been in the business longer than I ever was. What can I tell you guys? You're two professionals!' Two super great human beings and two Hall of Famers. In all of these Hall of Fames that I've been in, they'll go in as well."
