Paul Heyman: Roman Reigns Is Brock Lesnar's All-Time Top Rival In WWE
Lesnar and Reigns clash at WWE Crown Jewel 2021
Paul Heyman has named Roman Reigns as Brock Lesnar's all-time biggest rival in WWE.
Lesnar and Reigns have circled each other since Reigns broke out as a developing star in 2015, main-eventing WrestleMania 31 against each other for the WWE Championship.
The two men would again do so at WrestleMania 34 and compete multiple times following that bout in a series of matches over the WWE Universal Championship.
With Lesnar and Reigns set to meet again at Crown Jewel 2021, with a completely new dynamic, and the potential for even more matches between the two, Heyman feels the Tribal Chief is Lesnar's biggest ever WWE rival.
When asked by SportsKeeda Wrestling which of Brock Lesnar's former opponents is his all-time top rival, Heyman responded: "Roman Reigns, because we’ve done multiple WrestleMania main events between the two of them and will most likely do more.
"This is a really interesting situation. The Undertaker was very simple. History was made. Brock Lesnar conquered The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania. With John Cena, that was an intense rivalry between the poster boy for WWE, the most heavily hyped sports entertainer on the face of the planet against a former NCAA Division I Heavyweight Champion and former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar.
"With Roman Reigns, you have a completely different dynamic. You have someone that is also a Division I athlete and a champion. You have someone that could have gone into the UFC and smashed everybody. You have someone who matches up against Brock Lesnar. You have someone that’s equally credible as Brock Lesnar and there’s not a lot of human beings, let alone beings, on this planet or anywhere in the universe, hence Universal Heavyweight Champion, that can match up that way in terms of credibility with Brock Lesnar.
"I find the dynamic between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns to be the great rivalry like the Lakers and the Celtics, or the Yankees and the Red Sox."
