Paul Heyman surprised everyone when he showed up during the closing moments of SmackDown this week. He was sitting right next to Roman Reigns as they used each other’s signature lines. This is only the beginning.
According to PW Insider Roman Reigns is the new Paul Heyman guy moving forward. This puts the Big Dog in a very interesting position as so many fans have begged for him to turn heel in the past and Heyman can certainly guide him in that direction.
Going forward, the plans are to push Reigns as the top heel on the Smackdown brand going forward.
Roman Reigns has always been a Paul Heyman guy backstage as he has advocated him behind-the-scenes for years. We’ll have to see what this means for Payback, but Paul Heyman has a long history of managing Superstars into huge title reigns.
