If it happens, CM Punk will turn Roman Reigns into a face while he’d turn himself into a heel. With the WWE creative, bringing out unexpected twists in the bookings, anything can happen in the future. The fans are hyped to speculate on a massive rivalry between the top stars of the division and expressed their hearts on X.
Fans believe Paul Heyman will turn against Roman Reigns
A majority of the fans are tired of seeing Roman Reigns as the champion and with this, they are eyeing CM Punk as the man to dethrone Reigns. They also believe that Paul Heyman will bring unexpected twist to the storyline. A fan pitched, “Heyman in a shark cage above the ring…Winner gets the wiseman. Book it!” “Picture it lesnar v punk v reigns with Paul heyman turning on them and they jump him… cinema,” wrote another fan speculating Brock Lesnar’s appearance.
“Kinda like the Punk/Brock storyline a few years back. A Paul Heyman betrayal is inevitable,” another user wrote on X. “Heyman leaves Roman cause the title is gone? Cinema,” speculated one fan. Another one went ahead to note the outcome of the match and wrote, “Heel Punk with Heyman will feed families” It is just a matter of time before it is revealed what lies next for the two superstars.
Will Paul Heyman turn against Roman Reigns to align with CM Punk?
Paul Heyman has proved to be one of the closest acquaintances of Roman Reigns. However, this was his case with CM Punk during his first run with WWE. Now, in case Roman Reigns and CM Punk face off, Paul Heyman is sure to be the man to spice up things.
The Bloodline has already been in shatters since Sami Zayn and Jey Uso parted ways with the faction. With the story of betrayal on hold for quite some time now, Paul Heyman could be the man to reignite the streak. It would be no less than an absolute banger to see the buildup to the iconic Roman Reigns vs CM Punk feud.
Currently, Roman Reigns is out of the WWE bookings. This delays the possibility of their feud even further. In addition to this, these stars will have to be put under jaw-dropping storylines. Following this, fans speculate that the duo may face off at SummerSlam 2024.
