Since his return to WWE last year, we've certainly seen a completely different Roman Reigns, a now Heel wrestler and increasingly dominant on the Friday Night Smackdown roster. The Tribal Chief has acquired incredible confidence and many have been struck by the transformation of the wrestler, now the leader of the blue show and in general of the entire main roster.
Roman Reigns has a lot in common with WWE's The Beast Incarnate, Brock Lesnar, currently Free Agent but historic face, especially in recent years, of Vince McMahon's company. Both were handled (Roman still is) by WWE Mad Genius Paul Heyman and in recently, a SmackDown superstar has been criticizing the well-known advisor and his athletes.
Over the course of the latest episode of Talking Smack a Friday Night Smackdown superstar, Daniel Bryan hinted that Paul Heyman is the real reason why Roman Reigns isn't always busy fighting but almost seems to have a 'Brock Lesnar contract'

sort of part-time contract. In fact, The Beast Incarnate has been one of the biggest attractions of the WWE for years, but is known for providing limited performances and only on certain dates.
During the broadcast, Yes Man criticized Roman Reigns and at the same time praised a wrestler on the main roster, namely Cesaro. Here are his words about it: "Did Roman Reigns ever to fight this year? Or did he sign a contract at Brock Lesnar? Well, congratulations Paul, you got what I wanted on Roman.
That was your goal." Responding to these phrases the Mad Genius revealed that his job is to get the most out of his client economically by making him work as little as possible. In the course of the interview, Daniel Bryan recalled how it was really rare to see Brock Lesnar fight on Raw or SmackDown except for that fight for the WWE Universal Championship against Kofi Kingston on the blue roster.
The speech was born by recalling that next Sunday Roman Reigns will not be busy defending the title at Elimination Chamber. The WWE Elimination Chamber pay-per-view takes place this Sunday, and there will be two Chamber matches this year.
The first one will be contested over the WWE Championship. Drew McIntyre will defend his title against five other former champions in the brutal structure. The SmackDown Elimination Chamber has a different stipulation. The winner of the Elimination Chamber will go on to face Roman Reigns for his Universal Championship on the same night.
