WWE Great compares Roman Reigns to Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, Steve Austin and the Undertaker
Paul Heyman said in the last episode of Talking Smack that Roman Reigns’ level of greatness was something he had never seen before.
Reigns’ on-screen special advisor has worked with some of the biggest names in wrestling history including Brock Lesnar, CM Punk, Steve Austin and The Undertaker.
Paul Heyman said he “took a child under [his] wing ”at WCW and delivered it to Vince McMahon’s door when the time was right. The “kid” turned out to be WWE icon The Undertaker.
Highlighting how long he has been associated with “the brains behind true greatness,” Heyman also mentioned three other brand names.
“Of course, when the time came to harvest this Faustian affair, The Streak [The Undertaker’s WrestleMania undefeated streak] was conquered by my beast [Brock Lesnar]”Heyman said.” I was with Steve Austin before he became Stone Cold. If you watch the A&E documentary about Steve Austin, it gives me credit for putting the Stone Cold state of mind into his psyche. I was the voice of The Voice of the Voiceless [CM Punk]. “
Paul Heyman has “never seen greatness” like Roman Reigns
Following Reigns’ victory over Daniel Bryan at WWE SmackDown, Heyman claimed he was “impressed” by the WWE Universal Champion.
“You look at the greatness that I have been associated with, that I have led, that I have inspired for 34 years in this business, and what am I with Roman Reigns?” Heyman said. “Forget about being the special advisor. I’m impressed with Roman Reigns. It’s a GOAT level of all GOAT levels. I’ve never, ever seen greatness like this.”
The term “GOAT” is used to describe someone who is considered the greatest of all time. WWE Superstars and Legends, including Becky Lynch and Ric Flair, have also referred to themselves as the WWE “GOAT”.
Roman Reigns does not refer to himself as “The GOAT” on WWE television. However, Seth Rollins recently said WWE fans should feel blessed to see two “GOAT” performers – himself and Reigns – at the same time.
