Roman Reigns Reveals Why Paul Heyman Became His Manager In WWE
Roman Reigns has revealed why his partnership with Paul Heyman came about
Current Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns has discussed how Paul Heyman became his on-screen manager.
Appearing on a recent edition of Logan Paul's IMPAULSIVE podcast, The Tribal Chief said:
"Brock was in between contracts, so Paul was kind of wide open and it just fit. He had that opening creatively. He was still just working behind the scenes from a creative standpoint. Then once it opened up, I mean, when you're working with someone like Brock for as long as he did with the success that they had, you need to have something that's like, legitimate, come through to make that move, and I think I was really the only one that he wanted to work with, otherwise, I think he would just stay kind of plugged in and be helping from an overall directive standpoint. But yeah, once he knew, 'Oh, I'm gonna be with Joe. It's all good. I'm gonna be with Roman. It's all good', then we knew it was on".
Heyman has been absent from WWE television since SummerSlam, in order to sell the effects of taking an F5 through the announce table.
Though he hasn't been seen on television of late, Heyman has been working backstage at SmackDown and other important events, according to The Wrestling Observer Newsletter.
