Roman Reigns doesn't want to become a Paul Heyman Guy


Many people expect WWE to make the Universal Championship match between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns the main event of SummerSlam next weekend.

With The Beast expected to depart the WWE for UFC, it is widely expected as well that The Big Dog will walk out of the company's second biggest show of the year with the Universal title around his waist.

Due to WWE's will to make sure Lesnar hardly loses clean over the years, many people also believe there will be some sort of interference at SummerSlam to make sure this trend continues.

Following events of Monday Night Raw over the past two weeks, rumours have suggested that Paul Heyman will get involved and cost Lesnar the title, teaming up with Reigns in the process.

During a recent interview with Newsweek, Reigns was asked if he would be interested in teaming up with Heyman and having him talk for him.

Not a Heyman Guy

The Big Dog revealed that he doesn't want to team up with Heyman because he wants to talk for himself and do more interactive promos.

He said: “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.”

Great to work with

Despite not wanting to work with Heyman, Reigns did take the time to praise him, stating how he enjoys sharing time with him on camera.

“His knowledge, he has a wealth of it. I don’t hire the people here or know how all that works as for who stays around and who doesn’t, but if we only have Paul for x amount of time or if he’s not here every single Monday, on the Monday he is here you should pick his brain.


"He has some really cool twists on everything. He’s very smart and he doesn’t look at things through one perspective. There’s so many different rules in this business.

"He’s come all the way from being a young boy posting towns to being one of the most creative minds that has ever stepped foot in the ring in this business. It’s great to work around and with him.”

Reigns has a huge amount of respect for Heyman, but it doesn't look like the two will be working together anytime soon. We'll have to wait until SummerSlam next weekend to find out for sure.
