Paul Heyman is one of the most well-known and established names in the pro wrestling world. He is touted as one of the greatest minds to have ever been seen in the business. It seems Heyman made a huge admission recently as well.
Heyman is certainly one of the best talkers on the microphone and has helped elevate many Superstars he has worked with over the years and that includes Roman Reigns, Brock Lesnar and others.
Roman Reigns successfully defended his WWE Universal Championship against Goldberg at WWE Elimination Chamber. Brock Lensar also won the WWE Title at the same event.
The two are now set to square off against each other at WrestleMania 38 in a winner takes all affair. While speaking on the Battleground podcast, Paul Heyman admitted he doesn’t like the concept of title vs title winner takes all for Lesnar and Reigns’ match.
“It is my plan, my strategy, my counsel to the Tribal Chief Roman Reigns that we do everything in our power and influence to make sure that Brock Lesnar does not leave Madison Square Garden as the WWE Champion. I don’t like the concept of Title vs. Title, I don’t like the concept of Champion vs. Champion, I don’t like the concept of Winner Take All. In my opinion, Roman Reigns is already the end-all, be-all. He’s already the one that has taken it all. He’s already the champion in WWE and every other title can fight to be in the number two position.
The fact that Brock Lesnar would have to enter WrestleMania as former champion and couldn’t hold onto his title against the physicality of Roman Reigns, let alone the strategy of his former advocate Paul Heyman, could throw Brock Lesnar at such a disadvantage walking into WrestleMania that Roman Reigns’ victory at WrestleMania is fait accompli. It all comes together this Saturday at Madison Square Garden, where I am publicly acknowledging that our plan is to ensure Brock Lesnar loses the title in Madison Square Garden.”
It remains to be seen whether Brock Lesnar will end up becoming both the WWE and Universal Champion at WrestleMania 38 as fans have been waiting to see Roman Reigns finally drop his WWE Universal Championship for a long time.
