More News on Heyman/Lesnar, WWE Attempting to Swerve The Internet
Sunday, April 15, 2018
It was previously reported that Paul Heyman was fully aware that Brock Lesnar and WWE had agreed to a new contract prior to the April 2nd Episode of RAW which is main reason why during their promo on that RAW he said that they will never appear on RAW again if Lesnar lost as he was fully aware that the plan was changed and Roman Reigns wasn't going to win.
Heyman then spent the rest of the week working everyone during his media rounds by suggesting that Lesnar was headed to the UFC and that his last match with WWE was likely a WrestleMania. On a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Live, Bryan Alvarez mentioned that WWE has recently begun attempting to work the internet audience more and more by way of swerves to throw everyone off.
WWE had reportedly already drawn up plans for another role for Heyman in the event that Lesnar decided to return to the UFC, but once Brock and WWE agreed to a contract, it was guaranteed that Heyman would also be signing a new contract as Lesnar's advocate. The reason for this is that Lesnar negotiates directly with Vince McMahon and one of his stipulations is that Paul stays on board with him.
