Paul Heyman has been one of the most well-known and established names in the pro wrestling world for decades. His mind for the industry is genuinely genius, as Heyman truly understands the business. It appears he also made a big claim recently.
Paul Heyman is undoubtedly one of the greatest talkers on the microphone, whose incredible skills have helped put over numerous stars over the years, especially CM Punk, Brock Lesnar and now Roman Reigns.
“The Special Counsel to The Tribal Chief” has been by Roman Reigns’ side for well over three years now and his association with Reigns has only further raised the stock of himself as well as The Bloodline.
Roman Reigns has been the WWE Universal Champion for three years now and his reign is unlikely to end anytime soon. While speaking on WWE’s The Bump, Paul Heyman was asked whether he envisioned Reigns would have such a historic title run. Heyman made it clear that he always envisioned it and added that he believes Reigns will remain champion for the next three years as well.
Yes. God, this like a deposition. Asked and answered. Yes, and I envision it three years from now, and three years after that, and three years after that.
Roman Reigns wanted to be the greatest of all time. Roman Reigns wanted to solidify his legacy. Roman Reigns knew that he had peaked as the big dog, and there was nowhere left for him to go. Four WrestleMania main events, multiple heavyweight championships. What more could Roman Reigns have pulled off? Then he realized there is more. There is a higher mountaintop. There is more greatness to pursue.
There is the claim that John Cena could be the greatest of all time. There is the claim that Bruno Sammartino was the greatest champion of all time. These were all goals that Roman Reigns said, ‘We’re gonna go after them one by one, and like snipers, we’re gonna pick them off.’ So that’s what ended up doing. So yes, when Roman Reigns went after the championship, I knew he was going to be reigning at least this long, if not far longer. I knew the legacy that we were going to create, and we’re just getting started around here.”
We will have to wait and see what WWE will have planned for Roman Reigns in the coming months, as Paul Heyman would even bet on Roman Reigns main eventing WrestleMania 40.
