“You look at the greatness that I’ve been associated with, that I’ve driven, that I’ve inspired for 34 years in this business, and what am I with Roman Reigns?” Heyman said. “Forget about being the special counsel. I’m in awe of Roman Reigns. This is a G.O.A.T. level of all G.O.A.T. levels. I’ve never, never seen greatness like this.”

This comment arrived after Roman Reigns showed massive dominance in his match against Daniel Bryan on Friday Night SmackDown: May 30, 2021.

Seth Rollins made a similar comment about Roman Reigns

He believes Reigns is one of the greatest to have walked the ring.

However, it is possible Rollins said this to form an alliance with ‘The Tribal Chief’ to take down Cesaro.

Lately, Cesaro has been trying to enter a rivalry with Reigns, and the Universal Champion has been denying him the opportunity.

However, Rollins wants to end his feud with Cesaro on his own terms.

Now that Daniel Bryan is out of the way, maybe Cesaro will get his chance.

Paul Heyman commented about veteran Superstars

Reigns’ legal counsel spoke about the other veteran Superstars he has worked with.

Some of these Superstars are CM Punk, The Undertaker, and Stone Cold.

“Of course, when it came time for that faustian bargain to be collected, The Streak [The Undertaker’s WrestleMania undefeated streak] was conquered by my Beast [Brock Lesnar].

“I was with Steve Austin before he was Stone Cold. If you watch the A&E documentary on Steve Austin, he gives me credit for putting the Stone Cold mindset inside his psyche. I was the voice of The Voice of the Voiceless [CM Punk].” H/t Sportskeeda.
