In WWE, Roman Reigns has remained the biggest and main superstar of the company for the last 2 years. He had earlier said that he takes many big decisions regarding his character. At the same time, according to a recent report, Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman do not want the character of Tribal Chief to become a babyface.
A recent report by Ringside News states that Roman Reigns has turned down the idea of making Tribal Chief a babyface, and Heyman agrees.
This report stated:
Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman have always told the creative team, ‘This character is the champion, the center of attraction, the main event of WrestleMania and now people depend on this character.’ They always use the word ‘burden’ which refers to the burden of responsibilities the Romans have to bear.
Roman Renson has been a heel in WWE for the last 2 years
For a long time, WWE had rejected Roman Reigns’ decision not to make him a heel, so fans were getting bored with his babyface character. But after his return to SummerSlam 2020, people got to see his villainous character and a week after that he won the Universal Championship belt.
Regarding his heel character, Roman Reigns said:
“The thought crossed my mind, “I want to accomplish this because it can elevate my character to a new level.” I’m confident that if they allowed me creative freedom, I would play a role in this persona. As a performer, I’m rather good. I made an instant decision to accept the chance after giving it careful thought. Thanks to Vince McMahon’s blessing, everything happened at the ideal time.”
His career has progressed tremendously since Roman Reigns became a heel, which also increased his merchandise sales. Roman Reigns, being a heel, has consistently been in the company’s top-level storylines and it looks like he is going to be on top for a long time.
