#6 Brock Lesnar’s WWE Status
There were a lot of reports in early September which revealed that Brock Lesnar was no longer under contract with WWE. This was confirmed by Paul Heyman earlier this week in an interview with Ariel Helwani. Heyman confirmed that Brock Lesnar is now a free agent and is currently not under contract with WWE.
Here's how the conversation went:
Helwani: True or False? Brock Lesnar is still under contract with WWE.
Helwani: True or False? Brock Lesnar is currently a free agent.
Helwani: True or False? Brock Lesnar will fight again for the UFC.
Heyman: I don't know. That's up to you. You know, here's the breaking news and whether it is you watch Fox News, or CNN or NBC, or whatever news channel you watch; they always have this scroll at the bottom. Breaking News, and this is the same Breaking News since Brock Lesnar walked on to the mat and became the NCAA Division One Champion in the year 2000. And here is your soundbyte, Brock Lesnar does whatever Brock Lesnar wants to do, and that's what Brock Lesnar will do, and if you don't believe me, go back and find the unedited clip of his promo from UFC 100 because there is no controlling Brock Lesnar and there is no directing or navigating Brock Lesnar's path. There is only holding on to his coattails and enjoying the ride while you can because Brock Lesnar does whatever the hell Brock Lesnar wants to do.
Paul Heyman is currently aligned with the ‘Tribal Chief’ Roman Reigns on SmackDown. Heyman and Reigns joined forces soon after the latter's return to WWE. The Tribal Chief is currently feuding with his cousin Jey Uso. Reigns will defend the WWE Universal Championship against Jey Uso at the Hell In A Cell PPV later this month.Published 19 Oct 2020, 20:16 IST
