Roman Reigns ‘had enough’ of WWE creative before heel turn

Last updated

Roman Reigns had enough of WWE creative before his heel turn, according to Paul Heyman.

The Tribal Chief is on the run of a lifetime. The persona he has developed in the past few years has taken him to a whole new level. It has gotten him the appreciation of fans like never before and secured him a spot in the line of larger-than-life characters like Steve Austin, The Undertaker and more.

This change, however, didn’t come easy for Reigns. The Undisputed Champion had gone on a hiatus during the pandemic era. He had to put his foot down about turning heel when he returned and it’s what led to his current success.

Roman Reigns had enough

The special counsel to The Tribal Chief Paul Heyman recently talked about Roman Reigns’ hiatus during his appearance on Rick Rubin’s Tetragrammaton podcast (H/t He claimed the Head of The Table ‘had enough’ of the creative:

‘He’s not exposing himself to this pandemic that we don’t have a grasp on how severe it can be quite just yet and at the same time, he’s had enough of the creative. These things are running concurrently.

Heyman mentioned some of the moments from Roman’s face run that were highly criticized. According to him, the current champion knew that he hadn’t peaked creatively when he went on a hiatus:

“The feud rivalry story with Baron Corbin over dog food and the infamous sufferin succotash promo had weighed on him enough to where he said, ’˜I’ve had enough. I’ve reached the cap. I can’t go any further. As the big dog I’ve peaked. and as an athlete, I haven’t peaked as a performer. I’ve barely scratched the surface. I have so much more to offer and since I’m taking time off, I’m not coming back as the same person.’’
