Roman Reigns is perhaps on the best run of his career following his pairing with Paul Heyman. He became the WWE Universal Champion and has been a dominant champion on Friday Night Smackdown.
To promote his upcoming match against Kevin Owens at the Royal Rumble, Roman Reigns was interviewed by Brent Brookhouse of CBS Sports. During the interview, Roman Reigns opened up about his relationship with Paul Heyman, praising him.
“He’s just a pleasure to be around. Not only that, to be able to work with him? A lot of people just look at him as this creative genius and someone who is masterful on the microphone. But, the attention to detail is in every area, from anything that I need. This man has gotten me towels from the hotel to make sure they’re big enough, to picking me up custom steaks from the butcher last week. This guy does not cut his corners, he really is all hands on deck.
“It’s not just what he does from a creative standpoint or on camera, and he’s the greatest of all time with what he does in promoting and selling his athletes and how much demand he puts on the matches he’s involved in. He really does anything under the sun to make sure that the talent he’s working with is completely comfortable and focused on what they’re doing. It’s been a pleasure to work with him.”
Reigns then said that he never wants to work in WWE without Paul Heyman, in one way or the other.
“If something happens and we’re no longer on screen together, I don’t think I’ll ever want to work without him one way or another,” Reigns said. “Even if we’re not a pairing on television anymore, I will still want and need him at television to work with me. Even throughout the week. We’ll start texting throughout the week to get ideas and figure out the message we want to get across. It’s a weekly battle where we don’t always get our way, but we try our best to do that. It’s definitely a really neat scenario as far as brainstorming and creative spitballing in trying to push the envelope and create the most sophisticated narrative every week.
