One of the best acts in wrestling over the last year has been the pairing of Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman. The two began their partnership after Reigns returned at SummerSlam and they have been the highlight of SmackDown since.
One person who has been particularly impressed by the duo has been ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin. He had very good things to say about both Heyman and Reigns during his recent interview with Sports Illustrated. Here is the quote:
“That’s such a great package. They complement each other so well. Roman can work his ass off. He’s always been very solid in the ring, but now there’s this bond and this chemistry between Roman and Paul.
That’s what Paul Heyman does. He makes anybody he’s with that much better. It happened for me, too. If you want to suspend your disbelief, you can’t but help believe he’s Roman’s rock of knowledge. The presentation, the package and the chemistry between these two looks and sounds like money.”
Roman Reigns is currently set to defend the Universal Championship against authority figure Adam Pearce at the Royal Rumble. Reigns and Jey Uso orchestrated the number one contender Gauntlet match on SmackDown last week to ensure Pearce would be his opponent.
