“Just begun” – Paul Heyman claims Roman Reigns rescued him a year back


Paul Heyman is the current advocate of the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns

Roman Reigns might be the best heel WWE has seen in years all thanks to Paul Heyman. The Tribal Chief is no more pandering to the crowds and is doing as he pleases.

His Bloodline faction with the Usos has become one of the most interesting bits of WWE television and more is to come.

However, the man behind all this is Heyman. The Advocate, as he is called, was in the doldrums once Brock Lesnar went missing in WWE. Heyman then brought Reigns back from obscurity and was one of the reasons why The Chief turned heel.

Heyman has been doing a great job as Reigns’ manager, and took to Twitter to thank the Tribal Chief.

“EXACTLY 1 YEAR AGO, I was rescued by @wweromanreigns.

“In the 52 weeks that have transpired since then, the #TribalChief has redefined the medium, disrupted the status quo and titled the axis of what it means to be THEE top superstar in @WWE … and we’ve only just begun!”

Heyman also lauded Reigns as the best star in WWE presently and promised more was to come.

What will Paul Heyman do after Brock Lesnar’s return?

This message could be an attempt from Heyman to soothe Reigns after what transpired at SummerSlam.

Reigns had just defeated John Cena and was celebrating when Lesnar came out of hibernation. The Beast had been away from WWE for more than 18 months and this was a shock to many, including Heyman.

Heyman used to manage Lesnar before teaming up with Reigns, and many believed that the Advocate knew about Lesnar coming at SummerSlam.

Reigns and Lesnar did have a face to face but they did not attack each other. Heyman is in a bit of a pickle regarding Lesnar returning and it will be interesting to see what is next for the pair.
