Roman Reigns is having one of the greatest runs of WWE superstars ever and that has led to him earning some heavy praise from his Special Counsel, Paul Heyman.
When Roman Reigns won the Universal Title at WWE Payback on August 30, 2020, in the Thunderdome, Paul Heyman was right by his side. It was the start of an alliance that would dominate WWE for the next two years with Reigns holding the Universal Title for over 700 days. Reigns added the WWE Title to his collection at WrestleMania 38 in April. That led to Reigns earning the title of the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
Heyman has said a lot of great things over the last two years when it comes to Reigns and he did so after the Crown Jewel press conference on September 17th as well. During a post-press conference discussion with members of the media, Heyman said Reigns has surpassed two of the biggest stars ever that Heyman worked closely with. This is what Heyman said in a clip posted by Matt Kempe on Youtube:
“Make no mistake about this, okay? Brock Lesnar, one of the best, ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, one of the best, everyone I’ve ever worked with, amongst the best. Roman Reigns is the single greatest champion, performer, fighter, wrestler, sports entertainer I’ve ever encountered in my entire career, he is the undisputed greatest of all time.”
It’s possible that Heyman could be saying this as a way to promote the upcoming Reigns match against Logan Paul at Crown Jewel. However, as the man that has been by Roman’s side the most over the last two years, Heyman has seen the greatness up close.
Reigns and Heyman will be together again on the September 23rd episode of Smackdown along with the rest of The Bloodline as Reigns continues to prepare for his Crown Jewel match against Logan Paul in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on November 5th.
