WWE Superstar Roman Reigns recently did an interview with Newsweek to talk about several professional wrestling topics. “The Big Dog” is once again preparing to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship. They’ll go one-on-one at SummerSlam from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York on August 19, 2018.
During the interview, Reigns was asked about the possibility of working with Paul Heyman. Heyman’s relationship with his current advocate, Lesnar, has become strained as of late. Their working relationship is currently up-in-the-air in terms of storyline.
When presented with the idea of working with Heyman, and the former ECW frontman serving as his own advocate, Reigns opted against the idea as he said he prefers speaking for himself:
“Nah I like talking for myself. That’s one thing I want too, just a little longer promos you know what I mean? Just me and the mic that would be nice. Do a lot of interactive promos in the ring and stuff like that.
“That’s how you grow and it’ll be cool to get those long, solo promos. Working with Paul, there’s nothing wrong with just sitting there like a boss and let your attorney do the talking.
“Let him talk the logistics,and I’m sure Paul won’t have a problem reading off my resume, it’ll take awhile but he’s pretty good with stuff like that. But I would still want to talk for myself, 100 percent.”
