In an interview with Ariel Helwani, WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns discussed his relationship with Paul Heyman, who has acted as his advocate since his return at SummerSlam 2020.
Speaking about working with Heyman, Roman said:
“I really, thoroughly enjoy having him by my side. I’ve sung his praises many times, he just knows how to make an elite performer very comfortable in their skin and how to hyper focus on the task at hand and put that performance first above all else. That’s what he does to make that comfort and to be able to have that tunnel vision for that day, that night, that week, whatever it takes to get to that point.
“Paul, he’s been a pleasure to work with not only on a professional level but personally just being around him, talking to him, sharing stories with him, hearing the history with my family, all his knowledge of the business, of WWE, all the way back to Vince Sr. It’s really been an education being around him, I wouldn’t want to go back to [a time without him]. If my day does come where I leave for a while and then I come back, guess who’s going to be with me? Paul Heyman.”
Roman was also asked who Paul would side with in a feud with Brock Lesnar, which appears to be the plan for WWE after Lesnar returned at the end of SummerSlam this past weekend. He said:
“His Tribal Chief, that’s who. That’s the history, that’s the past, I’m moving him forward. Island of relevancy, he won’t forget that.”
