Paul Heyman spoke about how he brought in The Shield at WWE Survivor Series 2012 to ensure that CM Punk retained his title. The Special Counsel added that although the association between him and Roman Reigns goes back years, they only started their collaboration when the time was right:
I think like most overnight success stories, it’s taken forever to happen. We just celebrated this week the eighth anniversary of Roman Reigns’ debut on the main roster and how did Roman Reigns debut on the main roster? At Survivor Series 2012 as part of The Shield which was brought in by Paul Heyman to keep the title on CM Punk.
So my association with Roman Reigns in front of the public goes back to his debut on the main roster and I’ve known this man since the day he was born.
So this has been a lifetime in the making and only now was the time right for us to pull the trigger on this collaboration between Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman, the Tribal Chief and the Special Counsel.
