On a recent episode of The Arn Show, Arn Anderson gave his thoughts on Roman Reigns turning heel and mentioned that he should have been a heel from day one. He also praised Paul Heyman’s work and thinks he can really add to the “unlikable” factor for Reigns.
“Well, I’ve said before that Roman Reigns should have been a heel from the first day The Shield were hired, or utilized, or whatever you want to say, by Hunter as his hit squad,” Arn said. “He should have never been anything but that kick a– Samoan killing machine. That’s who he is and that’s how he’s going to get even better than he is right now, because he’s going to be allowed to be himself. And putting words in his mouth and having him be something that he’s not was a mistake with Roman.
“It’s crystal clear who he is and who he should’ve been from day one,” Arn added. “Paul Heyman is also a guy that even though a lot of people in the industry now– the curtains pulled back a little bit, and they respect him as far as his ability to cut a promo and get you revved up for the upcoming match. Paul has a lot of skills, and a lot of history, and a lot of knowledge, and he’s very unlikeable as well, and I think he will make it easier for Roman to be an unlikable figure.”
