From the WWE Rumor Mill: Big spoiler on Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman's post WrestleMania 34 plans
What's the story?
Many websites have wondered about Brock Lesnar's future plans once his contract expires. The same holds true for Paul Heyman as well, going forward.
As first reported by The Wrap and later by Cageside Seats, the rumour doing the rounds is that while Brock Lesnar may leave WWE to go to UFC following WrestleMania 34, Paul Heyman may stay back. And yes, he may stay back to either manage Roman Reigns or 'Rowdy' Ronda Rousey.
In case you didn't know...
Brock Lesnar is a superstar that has achieved much success and acclaim both in the ring and the octagon during his storied career. His contract will expire very soon and there have been many rumours about him wanting to return to the octagon once again.
As for Paul Heyman, he's a legend who's managed many World Champions in his day, from Lesnar to Punk to even Steve Austin and The Undertaker, in their earliest incarnations.
The heart of the matter
Lesnar will look to pursue gold and glory in the octagon, when his contract expires according to this rumour. As for Heyman, he will extend his advocacy to one of two performers in the current roster.
Ronda Rousey has not looked confident on the microphone since her debut. She bypassed the whole NXT system because of her incredible acclaim in addition to her UFC feats. She could benefit immensely from Paul Heyman's able guidance.
Roman Reigns is a stranger choice, quite honestly. He's always been portrayed as a 'lone wolf' of sorts, unless he's teaming with The Shield.
We wonder if there's a heel turn in store for Reigns, if this alliance does indeed happen.
However, before any of this can transpire Roman Reigns will take on Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship in the main event of WrestleMania 34.
I will make no predictions or claims for now. I'm content to sit by and watch as the action unfolds.
Truth be told, I'm intrigued by the thought of Heyman as Roman Reigns' manager.
