Could Roman Reigns be turning heel soon?
On last week’s episode of Raw, Paul Heyman was very complimentary towards Roman Reigns. Reigns did not have anything bad to say about Heyman either. In fact, he said that he didn’t have a problem with Heyman and the only person he has a problem with is Brock Lesnar. Some fans have speculated that this could, perhaps, be because WWE could be turning Reigns heel.
Bryan Alvarez talked about this on Wrestling Observer Live. Alvarez said that he’s been told that the company already knows what that they will do for the finish of the Reigns vs. Lesnar match at WrestleMania. However, it is not out of the question that WWE can renegotiate with Lesnar to get an extra match from him. He also said that he was told that it is not out of the question that they could have Reigns side with Heyman. They could either do that at WrestleMania or they can wait since there’s a good chance that Lesnar will be cheered in the match. In that case then they could have Lesnar win at WrestleMania (that could be Lesnar’s babyface turn) and then drop the title to Reigns the next night on Raw and have Heyman turn on Lesnar.
Alvarez noticed the interaction between Reigns and Heyman as well. Perhaps this is just something they’re doing to keep the possibility open in case they want to turn Reigns heel. This is all speculation at this point but none of this is out of the question.
