Not many WWE Superstars were able to defeat Roman Reigns’ two personas. The Big Dog also defeated 13 Superstars as both Roman Reigns and Roman Leakee.
Before Roman Reigns became known by his current name, he performed as Leakee and then Roman Leakee in WWE’s Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW) and NXT developmental systems.
During his time in FCW, the four-time WrestleMania main-eventer formed tag teams with Donny Marlow (better known as Tanga Loa) and Mike Dalton (better known as Tyler Breeze). He also unsuccessfully challenged for the FCW Florida Heavyweight Championship on three occasions.
