WWE Legend Paul Heyman recently praised Roman Reigns, comparing him to the likes of Brock Lesnar and Stone Cold Steve Austin.
While Heyman has previously worked closely with Austin and Lesnar, the legendary manager is currently working with The Tribal Chief. Under the guidance of the experienced promoter, Reigns has held the Universal Championship for over 750 days.
After a recent press conference with Roman Reigns, Matt Kempke shared footage of Paul Heyman touting the many attributes of the undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
“Make no mistake, okay. Brock Lesnar, one of the best, Stone Cold Steve Austin, one of the best, everyone I’ve ever worked with among the best. Roman Reigns is the greatest lone fighter, performer, fighter, wrestler, sports entertainer I’ve ever met in my entire career, he’s undeniably the greatest of all time,” Heyman said.

Roman Reigns and Heyman’s attendance at the press conference should promote The Tribal Chief’s next title defense, which sees the champion take on Logan Paul at Crown Jewel 2022.
Roman Reigns says Brock Lesnar is his biggest WWE rival
The tribal chief has been the face of the company for half a decade since his legendary debut on the main roster in 2012. While he’s had iconic feuds against legends like John Cena, Randy Orton and The Undertaker, there’s one name that stands above the rest as his greatest rival.
Speaking of Impulsive Podcast, Roman Reigns celebrated Brock Lesnar as his greatest WWE adversary.
“Me and Brock, we’ve done a number of big shows together. I mean we pretty much covered the entire calendar year to strike out. Big pay-per-views, WrestleMania main event, so I’d definitely say he’s my biggest competitor yet,” Reigns said. (H/T Sportkeeda)
Following their recent showdown at SummerSlam, Lesnar has taken some time off from business and fans are excited to see when he will return. Meanwhile, Reigns continued to build on his impressive run as the Undisputed Universal Champion.
