Roman Reigns has failed to beat Brock Lesnar twice this year, but next weekend he will face Brock Lesnar again and challenge him for the Universal Championship at SummerSlam.
Over the last few weeks, Roman Reigns has been interacting with Paul Heyman on the road to SummerSlam, and some fans have wondered if there’s a chance Heyman could turn on Lesnar and join up with Reigns.
During an interview with Newsweek, Roman Reigns was asked if he would be interested in having Paul Heyman talk for him, but he noted that he hopes to do more talking for himself in the future.
“Nah I like talking for myself. That’s one thing I want too, just a little longer promos you know what I mean? Just me and the mic that would be nice. Do a lot of interactive promos in the ring and stuff like that. That’s how you grow and it’ll be cool to get those long, solo promos. Working with Paul, there’s nothing wrong with just sitting there like a boss and let your attorney do the talking. Let him talk the logistics,and I’m sure Paul won’t have a problem reading off my resume, it’ll take awhile but he’s pretty good with stuff like that. But I would still want to talk for myself, 100 percent.”
Even though Reigns made it clear that he doesn’t want Heyman to talk for him, he did praise Heyman, and he noted that he’s great to work with.
“His knowledge, he has a wealth of it. I don’t hire the people here or know how all that works as for who stays around and who doesn’t, but if we only have Paul for x amount of time or if he’s not here every single Monday, on the Monday he is here you should pick his brain. He has some really cool twists on everything. He’s very smart and he doesn’t look at things through one perspective. There’s so many different rules in this business. He’s come all the way from being a young boy posting towns to being one of the most creative minds that has ever stepped foot in the ring in this business. It’s great to work around and with him.”
