Paul Heyman explained to the audience exactly why Reigns is at the very top, it’s because he fears no one.

“The tribal chief fears no man, no beast, no demon. But they all fear Roman Reigns.”

Heyman continued to explain that Reigns defends the title every second of every. The only reason Balor tapped into his inner demon for Extreme Rules is because Balor fears Reigns. Additionally, he’s known Lesnar for over twenty years, and last week was the first time he saw fear in Lesnar’s eyes.
