After years of World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) trying to push Roman Reigns as the leading face, The Big Dog has turned heel and reclaimed the Universal Championship. Reigns made a late entry to his Triple Threat match at the WWE Payback 2020, also involving Bray Wyatt and Braun Strowman. Aligning himself to Paul Heyman, he signed the contract and took advantage of the state Wyatt and Strowman were in having reduced each other to a wreckage before.Also Read - WWE: Becky Lynch is Much More Than ‘The Man’

Reigns is officially a villain now after trying in vain for over five years to win fans approval. And true to his new identity, he kept it late to sign the contract for the No Holds Barred Triple Threat match at the WWE Payback. Before he would make his entry, the match had seen Strowman and Wyatt demolishing each other. Reigns entered with Heyman, called for a new referee and eventually with a spear on Strowman, won the title by pinfall.
