When Roman Reigns returned to WWE in 2020 he introduced the world to his new Tribal Chief character and the beginning of The Bloodline began to take shape. Now almost four years later The Bloodline is still one of the biggest things going in WWE.

The Bloodline storyline has had a number of twists and turns and fans have wondered how and when everything might culminate. Paul Heyman recently spoke to The Ringer about the longevity of The Bloodline storyline, and he indicated that the ending has already been rewritten multiple times.

“I’m a huge proponent of writing the last page of the script first. It’s always to the advantage of long-term storytelling. I don’t think it was ever done better, ever, than the Brian De Palma–directed movie Carlito’s Way, because the very first frame of the movie tells you the ending. The first scene in that movie is the end of the movie. Then you’re taken on a ride with these characters that are so layered. The audience is truly emotionally invested in them to such a degree that when you know the movie is coming to the conclusion, you have forgotten what the ending is, and you’re rooting for Carlito, even though you were just told less than two hours ago he’s going to die on that train platform at the hands of this person in front of his soon-to-be bride. The magnificence of that storytelling is, to this day, so dramatically underappreciated. I’ve always been of the belief that the launch of the story is the first push toward the conclusion. The finish is everything.

“All that being said. I think I would suggest the ending of this story has already been rewritten multiple times because the world has changed since the inception of the Bloodline story. And therefore, what was a clear vision of how this should play out almost four years ago changed along the way based on not only the audience’s investment in the characters and the stories, but the world itself—society itself, pop culture itself, sports culture itself has all changed. And now we can see the trajectory that we’ve been on takes us so much further than we ever initially imagined.”

This weekend Roman Reigns & The Rock will team up to face Seth Rollins & Cody Rhodes in the night one main event of WrestleMania 40. The following night Roman Reigns will defend his Undisputed WWE Universal Championship against Cody Rhodes on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
