After serving as Brock Lesnar's spokesperson for several years, Paul Heyman joined Roman Reigns in 2020. Both of them improved their microphone skills a lot and Paul Heyman said he was very satisfied and pleased with both of them.
Speaking on The Masked Man Show, Paul Heyman praised Roman Reigns: “I'm very proud of both of them. Roman is a very strategic interpreter. The tribal chief has lived a long time inside Roman, but it was not the right time to introduce this character to everyone because he had to face public rehearsals first.
He needed some time. The chieftain could not have been the most handsome man in the business at the end of his 20s. Talking about Chieftain before he became Chieftain would not make sense. He is now very comfortable with this character.
He identifies himself perfectly that way. I like to say that SmackDown is the best show on television because for the first time you see the real Roman Reigns. He doesn't have to go out there and smile and tell you how much he likes to sign autographs at 4 pm for all the little kids who come to the show.
No, he doesn't. He doesn't want to make media appearances that he doesn't want to make."
Paul Heyman praises Roman Reigns
On Brock Lesnar, Heyman said, "As for Brock, he never wanted to talk. Brock Lesnar does what he wants and not what he doesn't want.
When Brock came back, he had been gone long enough and looked quite different. He's really comfortable with himself now. He's a much smarter Brock Lesnar than most people would think." On the comparison with LeBron James, Paul revealed: “If LeBron James took a stroll down the street in Paris or Rome, he could very well not be stopped by anyone.
America's biggest stars could very well go elsewhere without being recognized by anyone. But that doesn't exist with WWE Superstars, because they're all over the place." The opening match of WWE Royal Rumble saw Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins lock horns in an epic opening match.
The storied rivalry between the two superstars allowed to bring out excellent story-telling elements throughout the match. This was one of those bouts where the in-ring narrative was given equal importance. The tone of the match was set right at the beginning when Rollins made his entrance like The Shield, using the stable's music and gear.
