Roman Reigns has been utterly dominant in WWE as the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion, ruling over the company with an iron fist. Reigns demands everyone acknowledge him and in light of this, a Kobe Bryant statue seemingly acknowledged Roman Reigns recently. This even prompted a response from Paul Heyman for good measure.

More than four years have passed since Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and others lost their lives in a tragic helicopter crash and many people still cannot get over his untimely demise.

A new statue was recently made for the legendary basketball player to commemorate Kobe Bryant’s legacy. Interestingly enough, the statue was doing The Bloodline’s signature finger-pointing gesture.

A fan took to Twitter and pointed this out to Paul Heyman. The Wise Counsel of The Tribal Chief of WWE applauded the statue creator for acknowledging Roman Reigns.


”Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Paul Heyman, and on behalf of @WWERomanReigns , I applaud the WISE choice made by the statue creator who provided @kobebryant with the lasting honor of acknowledging our #TribalChief! @WWE @WWEonFox @USANetwork @kurtbardella @TheRock #WeTheOnes #Bloodline #Smackdown”

The Rock and Roman Reigns will be appearing on next week’s edition of Friday Night SmackDown. It remains to be seen what they will have to say, considering all the drama that went on at the WrestleMania 40 kickoff press conference.
