Roman Reigns, so far, appears to be the muscle-bound enforcer of the group. He hasn't had many opportunities to show off his one-on-one in-ring skills yet, which may be by design.
Reigns is a great professional wrestler; he's just a little greener than Rollins and Ambrose. While Rollins and Ambrose were cutting their teeth in independent promotions, Reigns was playing college and professional football. Reigns went right to FCW, which eventually became NXT, and then the WWE.
All that said, he isn't bad in the ring. Reigns can go as well as the next NXT guy; he has put on quite a few watch-worthy matches in his time at FCW and NXT.
One of those matches was this one. Reigns (Leakee at the time) took on Seth Rollins and Dean Ambrose in a triple threat match. While fans, at the time, didn't know that they would be seeing a lot more of this trio in the WWE, they did know that they were seeing a solid match.
In the match, Reigns shows off his athleticism, jumping over his opponents like he wasn't 6'3'' and 265 lbs. Reigns looks like a monster with his hard-hitting moves against two of the best young guys in the business.
One of Reigns' showdowns with Leo Kruger was another must-see for fans of The Shield's enforcer. In this match, Reigns shows his softer side, utilizing a few submission moves while keeping his athletic giant thing rolling.
