WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns was recently a guest on the Load Management podcast. During the show, Roman answered a number of questions including how he developed new direction for his persona, his relationship with Paul Heyman and a whole lot more.
Speaking of his new character direction, Roman Reigns went into details and pointed out differences with the old Roman:
I think, how do we deliver it in a different way as opposed to just, oh he’s a bad guy. He’s this nasty human being now. I wanted to be able to do it in layers. That way the character is not just defined as being a bad guy. He’s the guy who’s faced with these decisions. In my mind and in the character’s mind, he’s justified in what he’s doing so he’s technically not wrong, but maybe rubbing people the wrong way or is using a different route than what most people were used to seeing the old character take.

Roman Reigns also spoke about his relationship with Paul Heyman. 'The Big Dog' said that the was not a Paul Heyman guy and that it was actually the other way around - Paul Heyman is a Roman Reigns guy.
