Roman Reigns returned to WWE at SummerSlam on August 23, 2020, attacking the then-Universal Champion “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt, and Braun Strowman following their match for the title. On the following week’s episode of WWE SmackDown, Reigns aligned himself with his new manager, Paul Heyman, turning heel for the first time since 2014, and officially kicking off The Bloodline/The Tribal Chief storyline with Jey Uso immediately after.
During a recent interview with the SI Media podcast, Paul Heyman addressed his partnership with the reigning Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns, referring to their relationship as “spiritually orgasmic.”
You can check out some highlights from the interview below:
Paul Heyman on working with Roman Reigns: “Spiritually orgasmic. I often say the relationship, when you work with somebody so closely behind the scenes in the pursuit of doing something that can garner this type of critical acclaim, that the pursuit has to be so transparent and so open with one another that in a completely non-sexual way, you’re far more intimate with that person than you are with your own family. Because in order to reach those levels, you have to expose your own vulnerabilities, your own fears, and your own concerns.”
Heyman on villains not seeing themselves as villains: “All great villains don’t see themselves as the villains. It’s the portrayal of a hero that was pushed too far, and went too far, and accomplished too much, that once they reached that level no one else could attain, he felt the burden to stay at that level, and the responsibilities and the obligations and the accountability of being at the level weighs on you.”
Reigns will defend his title against Cody Rhodes in the main event of WrestleMania 39 at the SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
