• “Roman Reigns could be the UFC Heavyweight Champion in a heartbeat” – Paul Heyman
In the main event of WrestleMania 38, Universal Champion Roman Reigns defeated former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship, thus becoming the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion.
Paul Heyman is the ultimate hype man and he’s putting over the Head Of The Table to the fullest degree.
During an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer, Heyman said Reigns has what it takes to become the UFC Heavyweight Champion (a title that is currently held by Francis Ngannou):
“He has the agility and aptitude of a Division I athlete, and don’t ever lose sight that Roman Reigns could be the UFC Heavyweight Champion in a heartbeat.
The aura of him being presented as The Tribal Chief at times betrays what an extremely — all pun intended — tough man and athlete who stands before you as your Tribal Chief.”
This Friday on SmackDown, Reigns will face another former UFC Fighter, Riddle, in a match for the Undisputed Championship.
Here’s what Roman tweeted about this upcoming match:
“Now I have to leave the private island 🏝
…jump on the private yacht🛥
…and then board the private jet 🛩 just to smash this idiot on #SmackDown
Tribal Chief problems. 😏☝🏽”
