• Roman Reigns’ Title Defenses Are Like The Undertaker’s Streak Matches, Says Top WWE Personality

In the main event of WrestleMania 39 Sunday, Roman Reigns defeated Cody Rhodes with the help of Solo Sikoa & The Usos to retain the Undisputed WWE Universal Championship.

As seen on RAW the next night, Cody isn’t done with Roman, but it looks like he will have to go through Brock Lesnar first.

During an interview with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Paul Heyman was asked where he would rank The Tribal Chief’s title defense against The American Nightmare.

Below is what Heyman said:

“I don’t know. I haven’t had a chance to digest it yet. I like the fact that everyone walks in now thinking this is the last title defense. I experienced this before with something I had a hand in ending, which was The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania.

Every year you sat there and you said, ‘Oh, this is it.’ During the match, the audience is actually anticipating and salivating for this to be the moment that they get to witness the historical three count on The Undertaker to which The Streak would finally end.

Then of course when The Undertaker would defend The Streak, they said, ‘Oh yeah, I don’t want to see this end. I can’t wait for the next chapter’, and then it finally ended and the audience was shocked because they thought they wouldn’t see it.

This was year after, year after year, and then they finally got to see it.

I think that’s the same thing with Roman Reigns’ title defenses now. You hope this is the one. You think this is the one. You’re sure this is the one. You watch the match happening, and you go, ‘You know this is the one’, and then it turns out not to be the one. ‘Oh, man. I can’t wait to see the next chapter.’

The response tonight to Cody Rhodes, which was louder than the response last week to Cody Rhodes, which was a response more passionate tonight for Cody Rhodes, which was a response of an audience that believes in Cody Rhodes this week more than they did last week when they hung their hopes and their dreams on him. He didn’t disappoint them. We disappointed them. We took that away from Cody Rhodes.

Roman Reigns took that away from Cody Rhodes and the audience, and they blame Roman Reigns for it. They appreciate how close Cody came, and they know now, they know, the next time Cody Rhodes steps in the ring with Roman Reigns, this will be the one.

That’s the business. That’s the business at its very best. That’s promotion at its very best. That’s storytelling at its very best. That’s what you want. You want the challenger to come out a bigger star than he would have been if he had won the championship because then where do you go from there? What’s the story to tell?

Now you know the story. It’s Cody’s redemption. He’s coming back from what was just taken from him from the defeat that he suffered that he didn’t deserve to have inflicted upon him.”
