The last time when these two powerhouses faced each other, Paul Heyman was on Lesnar’s side and Roman was the babyface who was fighting against all odds. However, this time Lesnar is on his own, but does that make him even more dangerous? The WWE Universal Champion, Roman Reigns clearly doesn’t think so.

Speaking with COMPLEX, Roman Reigns was asked about how he is planning his game against this newly unleashed Brock Lesnar, who now cuts his own promos and smiles a bit more than he used to.

Reigns firmly replied that he is not the same ‘Big Dog’ who used to challenge Lesnar back in the days. This time the tables have turned, and he also touches upon his improved skill-set since winning the title last year.

“I think the progression that I’ve made just speaks volumes to where I’m at now. I don’t think it’s really arguable. What I’ve done over the past year, what I’ve done with this Universal Championship, what I’ve done as the face of WWE and the business behind it,”

“I think the greatest result of all of that is all of these huge names that continue to come back just trying to step up to me. They’re acknowledging me,” Reigns concluded.

With all the tension building in Reigns’ camp because of Paul Heyman, it looks like the fans are in for a treat. At Crown Jewel 2021, it will be the very first match of Brock Lesnar under his newly signed 8 matches contract.
