Ex-UFC star Junior dos Santos calls out WWE champion Roman Reigns after recent appearance with pro wrestling rivals AEW

FORMER UFC star Junior dos Santos has called out WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns following an appearance on rival wrestling company AEW.

Dos Santos, who last fought at UFC 256 in December 2020, was seen making his in-ring AEW debut on Friday.


But Reigns was not impressed by Dos Santos and insisted he would easily be able to beat the former UFC Heavyweight Champion.

The WWE champ said: "I don't think anybody really believes someone 200 lbs soaking wet with no explosive bone in their body could every really do anything.

"I'm 6'3", 265 lbs, a legitimate athlete who can throw some weight around and has been on the gridiron at the highest level."

Dos Santos has now responded to those comments by calling out Reigns on Twitter.

Speaking on social media, he said: "Hey @WWERomanReigns I heard your interview.

"Please send the address of this club you will throw me and my little brothers out of #AEW."

He also posted a picture of him preparing to body slam AEW's Chris Jericho.

Dos Santos' AEW debut saw him, Ethan Page and Scorpio Sky beat the Inner Circle's Jericho, Jake Hager and Sammy Guevara.

The 36-year-old defeated Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman in a triple threat match at WWE's pay-per-view event Payback.

Reigns has held the WWE Championship three times and the WWE Universal Championship twice.
