Paul Heyman is the Special Counsel to Roman Reigns and never fails to praise The Tribal Chief at every given turn. In fact, Heyman went so far as to claim that he and Roman Reigns don’t compare themselves to previous wrestlers.

When asked about comparisons between his partnership with Roman Reigns and legendary pairings like Nick Bockwinkel and Bobby Heenan, Paul Heyman provided his perspective. He emphasized the uniqueness of their dynamic and their contributions to WWE television since September 2020. Heyman highlighted their central roles in major storylines leading into recent WrestleMania events, with Heyman serving as Reigns’ “Special Counsel” to “The Tribal Chief.”

In a recent interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Paul Heyman expressed his reluctance to be compared to other wrestling acts. Instead, he aims to establish himself and Roman Reigns as the standard against which all others are measured. Heyman emphasized his focus on achieving greatness that surpasses that of previous acts.

“The only comparison I make to other acts is whether the greatness we seek puts us over and above the greatness they achieved,” said Heyman. “Instead of comparing, I prefer to strive to set the standard. In the end, that leaves everyone else comparing themselves to us.”


At WrestleMania, Roman Reigns is set for an intense schedule, wrestling on consecutive nights. On the first night, he’ll join forces with The Rock to take on Cody Rhodes and Seth Rollins. Then, on the second night, Reigns will put his Undisputed WWE Championship on the line in a rematch against Cody Rhodes, renewing their rivalry from last year’s WrestleMania.
