Roman Reigns is absolutely living the ‘Head Of The Table’ moniker at the moment, with Paul Heyman working studiously at his side.

It’s another big name for Heyman’s collection of top wrestlers he’s managed, and he’s revealed that it was the lure of Reigns which got him back in front of the camera.

Speaking with DAZN, Heyman commented that it is Reigns’ drive and ambition that brought him back.

That was the only thing that could put me back in front of the camera after my run with Brock Lesnar. Because to me, if I’m not with someone driven by the ambition of accomplishing the impossible, then it was time to call it a day. But that’s Roman Reigns. Roman Reigns wants to top everything he’s done since he debuted on the main roster.

Roman Reigns wants to accomplish and top everything that was done by Bruno Sammartino, Hulk Hogan, “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, The Rock, Triple H, Shawn Michaels, The Undertaker, Ric Flair. Combine them all, stack them high. Roman Reigns wants to go to a level all of them together could not, cannot achieve. That’s the goal every single solitary micro-moment you see him on camera. That’s a level of ambition that I strive for as well. It’s an honour, a privilege, and a pleasure to collaborate with such a vision.

As you’d expect, Heyman has a plan for Reigns’ future.

He knows that The Head Of The Table has done it all in the wrestling business – almost.

Roman Reigns also was at a point in his career for WrestleMania main events, scheduled for five, and multiple world championship runs on top since the day he started on the main roster. What was left for Roman Reigns to accomplish except the status of the undisputed, uncontroverted GOAT. That is the driving force. That’s the ambition. That’s the vision. That’s the desire. That’s the dream. That’s the craving. That’s the lust. That’s the seduction. That’s the lore. That is the goal. Every single solitary micro-moment that you see, both the character and the man Roman Reigns unfold in front of your eyes.

Reigns’ next big challenge will most likely be at WrestleMania Backlash on 16th May, and there’s every possibility we’ll find out who his opponent will be during the Throwback SmackDown tonight.
