Universal Champion Brock Lesnar and his advocate Paul Heyman have been a topic of conversation in some fashion since he returned to WWE back in 2012 after WrestleMania. Since becoming Universal Champion back at WrestleMania 33, there has been a serious amount of critical attention placed on Lesnar and his position within the company.
Many speculated Lesnar would drop the Universal Championship to Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 earlier this year, but that did not happen. In fact, Reigns never managed to capture the coveted Championship. Now, if multiple reports we’ve covered in the past are to be believed, Lesnar may only have one match left in him.
We noted earlier this week that Lesnar had until June 29 to re-enter the USADA testing pool. If successful, Lesnar would have the ability to re-enter the Octagon and be eligible to compete in the big UFC New Year’s show.
Depending on what Lesnar wants, he may be making his exit from the company sooner than later. Jim Ross commented on The Ross Report about the relationship between Lesnar and Heyman and gave an insight into the future of the talent.
“Where does Heyman stand in all of this? Heyman and Brock are so joined at the hip if you will I can’t see Lesnar being managed or involved with anyone but Heyman and right now I don’t see Heyman being involved with anyone than Lesnar. They’re a packaged deal in some shape, form, or fashion they’re great assets.”
“They’re even better together in my estimation and I know someone’s saying, ‘they could make Ronda a heel and put Heyman with her and everything would be all great’ and you might be right but I don’t want that to happen at the expense of losing Lesnar. If you can have both. If you can have both if you can have Rousey and Lesnar as well I’m going for that deal.”
There is some expectation that WWE keeps him around paying him per appearance, but only time will tell what ‘The Beast Incarnate’ and his advocate do with the company.
What do you think Lesnar will do? Will he return to UFC or stick with WWE? Do both, even? Sound off in the comments below.
