Roman Reigns reinvented himself by not only turning heel but also aligning himself with Paul Heyman.
This was after being on the sidelines for months to be with his family during the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Reigns will make his next title defense as WWE Universal Champion against Kevin Owens in a Last Man Standing Match at the Royal Rumble. While doing an interview with CBS Sports, Reigns spoke about his working relationship with Heyman.
“He’s just a pleasure to be around,” Reigns said of Heyman. “Not only that, to be able to work with him? A lot of people just look at him as this creative genius and someone who is masterful on the microphone. But, the attention to detail is in every area, from anything that I need. This man has gotten me towels from the hotel to make sure they’re big enough, to picking me up custom steaks from the butcher last week. This guy does not cut his corners, he really is all hands on deck.
“It’s not just what he does from a creative standpoint or on camera, and he’s the greatest of all time with what he does in promoting and selling his athletes and how much demand he puts on the matches he’s involved in. He really does anything under the sun to make sure that the talent he’s working with is completely comfortable and focused on what they’re doing. It’s been a pleasure to work with him.”
Reigns added that whenever their on-screen pairing is over with, he wants Heyman to be involved with his promos and feuds going forward. He also talked about facing Owens again, the success of the feud, and more. Check out the full interview here.
