WWE News: Paul Heyman issues statement regarding Brock Lesnar's attack on Rey Mysterio and Dominick
The season premiere of WWE RAW kicked off with Rey Mysterio, who was set to address his WWE Universal Championship match against Seth Rollins. However, Brock Lesnar made his presence felt by attacking Mysterio and his son, Dominick, who was seated ringside.
The Beast Incarnate didn't reveal his motive behind this assault but his advocate, Paul Heyman, opened up regarding the situation. Heyman blamed the WWE authority for the scenario involving Mysterio and Dominick as he felt that Lesnar shouldn't have been allowed near a WWE ring when he's in "fight mode".
Heyman further stated that no one can do anything about the actions of The Beast. He went on to warn the WWE Champion Kofi Kingston and claimed that the WWE Universe will witness a brand new Champion after the two square off at the Fox premiere edition of SmackDown.
