Report: Michael Hayes And Paul Heyman 'Very Hands-On' With Roman Reigns' Heel Persona

Roman Reigns has exploded onto the scene since August of 2020 with a new persona, a new manager, and a new attitude.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that Paul Heyman has been writing a lot of the verbiage Roman has been saying on-screen and when it comes to his matches, Michael Hayes is reportedly the agent for “The Tribal Chief.”

Both Heyman and Hayes have a relationship with the Samoan Dynasty. In 1989, Paul Heyman was the manager of the Samoan SWAT Team, (Rikishi) Fatu and Samu and they went into a war games match at the 1989 Great American Bash, alongside the Fabulous Freebirds, who were, of course, headed by Michael Hayes.
