5 WWE Superstars who could be the next Paul Heyman Guy
Brock Lesnar is expected to leave WWE once his contract with the company runs out in 2018, with a return to UFC potentially on the cards.
The Universal champion signed a three-year deal with WWE in March 2015, meaning his final appearance was set for WrestleMania 34, but UFC president Dana White claimed recently that his contract runs until August 2018.
Either way, whether “The Beast Incarnate” departs after WrestleMania, SummerSlam or anytime in between, it’s safe to say he won’t be around in WWE for much longer, which raises questions about the future of Paul Heyman.
The former ECW owner is one of the best managers – or advocates, as he would say – we’ve ever seen in the wrestling business and WWE will surely want him to stick around even after Lesnar has departed.
With that in mind, we take a look at five current WWE Superstars who are contenders to be Paul Heyman Guys when the reigning, defending, undisputed Universal champion bids farewell to the squared circle.
#5 The Revival
Very few Superstars have been as unfortunate with injuries as The Revival in 2017. Dash Wilder suffered a broken jaw just a few weeks after his main-roster debut in April, ruling the tag team out for two months, and then they were sidelined for a further four months when Scott Dawson needed surgery on his torn bicep.
Thankfully, five months on their last televised appearance together, the “No Flips, Just Fists” duo were finally back on our screens when they made their long-awaited return on the 18 December episode of Raw to defeat Heath Slater & Rhyno.
As we outlined when we looked at five fantasy factions that WWE should seriously consider, Paul Heyman is someone who should only be aligned with the very best of the best and, in The Revival, he’d be representing one of the best tag teams on the planet.
WWE fans might not see what the fuss is all about yet with the duo, but it won’t take long before the former NXT Tag Team champions show exactly why they’re the best team we’ve seen come through the developmental ranks since the Wyatt Family.
