4 bold predictions for WWE in August: Paul Heyman turns on Brock Lesnar, a long-awaited return?
We are seven months into the year 2019 and boy, how exciting this year has already been! With both RAW and SmackDown showing some improvement in the last few weeks (thanks to Heyman and Bischoff?), we are building towards what might be a great SummerSlam.
The month of August is sure to give us many memorable moments, feuds, and matches. Be it the return of Bray Wyatt or the in-ring debut of The Fiend, or a dream clash between Charlotte and Trish Stratus, this month is guaranteed to be a great time to be a WWE fan.
With still one week to go for SummerSlam, there is a lot that can happen this month. In this article, I'd like to give four bold predictions for WWE in August. How excited are you for SummerSlam 2019?
#4 Paul Heyman turns on Brock Lesnar
Now, this might not seem very obvious to many of you, but when you observe nicely, WWE has been trying to blur the differences between storylines and reality many times this year. The whole WrestleMania main-event was centred around this theme.
Even the major backstage news of Heyman and Bischoff becoming Executive Directors was announced publicly. With Heyman in-charge of RAW while being the advocate of Brock Lesnar at the same time, what if the Heyman - the Executive Director realizes that his client is a threat to his very own show?
It's a very well-acknowledged fact on WWE Programming that Lesnar is a part-timer and doesn't show up to defend his title for months. What if Heyman decides to choose "WWE" over Lesnar by turning on him and screwing him at SummerSlam? This would not be a heel turn from Heyman, but a face turn in many ways as he will be trying to help the show which he is in charge of.
"Fans want a champion who shows up every single night! I did what is Best for Business!"
The alliance of Heyman and Lesnar has been there for a long time, and it'll be a huge moment to see him turning on his client. WWE can even use this storyline to make someone like Drew McIntyre or Braun Strowman the new Paul Heyman guy and pit them against Lesnar. About time Lesnar puts over some young talent!
