#4 An association with Paul Heyman explains the newfound aggression of Roman Reigns
No, it wasn't the same Roman Reigns we've come to know and love, the real-life Superman that we are so very fond of, that we saw at WWE SummerSlam, dearest readers of Sportskeeda. It was a more aggressive Roman Reigns, and if he truly is allied with Paul Heyman, it would explain why he was so very 'extreme'. After all, Paul Heyman was the brains behind ECW, a promotion with 'extreme' in its very name. Some have suggested that Roman Reigns is going heel, following his association with Paul Heyman, which may very well be the case, but even a more aggressive big dog is money.
Vince McMahon has long been under the impression that a clean-cut babyface is the right way to go but older fans, in particular, gravitate towards characters with an edge and the current version of Roman Reigns is certainly a step in that direction. Roman Reigns is a better promo than he used to be, but Paul Heyman is in a league of his own, granting him an even bigger edge.Published 29 Aug 2020, 09:50 IST
