Former WWE Manager Dutch Mantell recently shared some insights about the anticipated return of Roman Reigns to WWE. The latter, who last competed at WrestleMania XL, built a legacy during his reign as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion when Paul Heyman was by his side, and he defeated all challengers until Cody Rhodes claimed the title, ending Reigns' historic reign.

On the latest episode of Sportskeeda Wrestling's Smack Talk, Mantell speculated on the future dynamics within The Bloodline, including Solo Sikoa, Tama Tonga, and Tonga Loa. He suggested that a betrayal against Paul Heyman, lovingly referred to as 'The Wiseman,' could be the setting through which Reigns resurfaces to save the veteran manager.

Reigns' Anticipated Return

Mantell continued, saying, "You can almost see what's coming. They're going to start in on Paul Heyman one day. Then I don't know if Roman would make the save or show up to defend him. They're laying this out well.

The fans saying, 'We want Roman.' He didn't do anything! He hadn't done anything. But they like Roman because he hung in there for three-and-a-half years and held the title. So he has respect from the fans." Such a view refers to the fact that Reigns continues to be loved and is still well respected by the fans of WWE.

Their eyes are set on how the storyline will play out, but especially if there are internal conflicts within The Bloodline over power struggles once Reigns steps back into the WWE arena. Mantell's comments have caused speculation on what could happen with Reigns' return and the potential drama inside the faction.

Roman Reigns returning to defend Heyman would not only rebuild his character but add a whole new layer to the drama already written deep into the book of loyalty and betrayal in The Bloodline. With WWE continuing to expand to greater heights with its storylines, the return of such a powerhouse as Reigns is bound to be a defining moment—something that will indeed be looked forward to by fans worldwide.
