As we reported last week here on eWn, Paul Heyman’s new alliance with Roman Reigns goes beyond just an on-camera role. According to Fightful, Heyman has been very influential in how Reigns has been booked since he returned at SummerSlam. As many of you know by now, Reigns made his return to WWE and turned heel. With Heyman by his side, he won the WWE Universal Champion at last Sunday’s Payback pay-per-view event.
The situation is described as being similar to when Heyman was involved in creative for Brock Lesnar, Goldberg, and Ronda Rousey. Heyman was reportedly heavily involved in how they were all handled on a creative level. As far as Reigns is concerned, Heyman is credited with contributing to the reveal of himself as Reigns’ advocate on SmackDown, the finish of Payback and last week’s SmackDown promo.
