JBL talks about working with Reigns

On the latest episode of Stories with Brisco and Bradshaw, former WWE Hall of Famer JBL was seen talking about his time as a WWE producer and how it was to work with Roman Reigns. The former WWE Superstar claimed Reigns was great to work with during his time as a WWE producer.

He said, “I tried it for a few months and I didn’t really enjoy it. You try and explain things the best that you feel in the interests of the performers, and they have so many different ideas. The ones that I dealt with, some of them were awesome, absolutely awesome. I tell you who was awesome… Roman Reigns.”


“He [Roman Reigns] got everything. That was before he main-evented all those WrestleManias. I thought, ‘This guy is really smart,'” JBL added.

What next for Roman Reigns?

Roman Reigns has recently defended his WWE Universal Championship at WWE Extreme Rules by defeating Finn Balor. But tough challenges lie ahead for ‘The Tribal Chief’.

Brock Lesnar’s return at WWE Summerslam 2021 has revived the old rivalry between Reigns and Lesnar. The two wrestlers even headlined WrestleMania 34. But unfortunately for Reigns, it ended in a defeat for him.

Now with Lesnar back in WWE and having declared war on Reigns, we are heading in for the next chapter of this rivalry soon. Reigns could probably face Lesnar at WWE Crown Jewel 2021.

There have been a lot of expectations for this match between these two great wrestlers. All we can do now is hope that this match lives up to the hype.

But the most important factor in deciding the winner of this bout could be Paul Heyman. Paul Heyman is currently acting as a special counsel to Roman Reigns. But he is no stranger to Brock Lesnar. Heyman was Lesnar’s advocate previously and knows all too well what ‘The Beast Incarnate’ is capable of.

So, Heyman betraying Reigns for Lesnar will always remain a possibility. But will Heyman make the switch or remain in Roman Reigns’ corner? It will be very interesting to find an answer as the rivalry progresses.
