However, the dynamics of this rivalry have drastically changed from the earlier fights. This time ‘Beast Incarnate’ does not have his ‘advocate’ Paul Heyman by his side; instead, Heyman will be on Reigns’ corner during the main event of the pay-per-view.

However, this does not change the fact that Paul Heyman cannot speak for ‘The Beast’. In a recent interview, Heyman confessed Roman Reigns has never faced someone quite like Lesnar during his over a year run as the WWE Universal Champion.

With John Cena, that was an intense rivalry between the poster boy for WWE and the most heavily hyped sports entertainer on the face of the planet, against a former NCAA Division-1 Heavyweight Champion, former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar.
