Paul Heyman On Why Vince McMahon Does Not Have Him Advocate For Other Wrestlers, Brock Lesnar’s WWE Future
Paul Heyman, who will be at ringside for what might Brock Lesnar’s final WWE match at WrestleMania 34 on Sunday night, recently spoke with USA Today’s For the Win, and spoke on a number of topics, including his history with Roman Reigns’ family, and the Universal Title match on Sunday night.
When asked about potentially advocating for other talents in WWE besides Brock Lesnar, and whether or not he would need first to be invested in talent before he could advocate for him or her, Heyman had the following to say:
“Yes, I would have to be invested in that person first. B, I think I have established such credibility in the things that I say with Brock Lesnar, that I don’t envision Vince McMahon forcing someone to be paired with me – because unless I truly believe in that person, I don’t think Vince would want me to advocate for them.”
On his the future of both himself and Brock Lesnar in WWE after Sunday night, Heyman explained the following:
“And again, to be blunt here, Brock and I are fully committed to making this WrestleMania, April 8th in the main event with Roman Reigns, as memorable an event as has ever been presented by WWE. Neither one of us has made the commitment to stay after April 8th yet because we’re so focused on April 8th.
“Brock is very task-oriented. He learned that on the dairy farm in Webster, South Dakota, when he was a child. 5 a.m., wake up, milk the cows. 7:30 a.m., get the eggs from the chickens. You handle the wheat at 11:00 a.m. And he takes on each task as it stands in front of him. We both made the commitment through April 8th.
“I can, with great candor, tell you I have no idea WrestleMania for either one of us in this business, because Brock is obviously eyeballing a return to the octagon. It’s no secret now. I’m developing projects in a co-production between my agency, the Looking 4 Larry agency, and Roy Bank’s Banca Studio, to pitch to networks. Whether that means April 8th is the last day in this industry? I don’t know yet, and I’m very comfortable with that because it just allows us to laser-focus on putting together the greatest main event possible for this year’s WrestleMania.
“And then once the match is over, Brock and I will assess what our futures hold.”
