Paul Heyman Thinks Brock Lesnar Can Do UFC And WWE At The Same Time
We’re counting down the times till WrestleMania 34, and with it the top of Brock Lesnar’s present contract with WWE. Will he keep? Will he go to UFC? Or will he, as Paul Heyman lately recommended in a wide ranging interview with Newsweek, determine to do each on the identical time?
“We each have quite a lot of initiatives we now have been serious about pursuing that can begin to kick off after WrestleMania.” Heyman mentioned. “That doesn’t imply Brock Lesnar can’t retain the title and we do these different initiatives concurrently in a continued run as Common Champion. The proof I supply to you is Brock Lesnar fought Mark Hunt at UFC 200 and, six weeks later, important evented SummerSlam towards Randy Orton.”
However whereas Lesnar’s WWE future could also be cloudy, his curiosity in returning to UFC is fairly clear minimize. At this level Heyman is speaking about it prefer it’s a performed deal (which in fact it might probably’t be till after WrestleMania).
“I don’t suppose it’s any secret that Brock is seeking to get again into the octagon,” he mentioned. “He’s clearly eyeballing one other battle in UFC. There’s no secret. He’s posing for pictures with Dana White sporting a UFC shirt within the UFC places of work in Las Vegas. That’s not a negotiating tactic, Brock Lesnar desires to compete inside the octagon. There’s no leveraging that; it’s a reality.”
As for who Lesnar would match up towards, there’s no shortage of UFC fighters seeking to tackle the WWE Celebrity. Based on Heyman, Lesnar is able to face “whomever UFC deems applicable as each a bodily matchup and a field workplace attraction towards Brock Lesnar.”
It may take some time although earlier than Lesnar is allowed to compete. He’s still got six months of USADA testing to get by means of earlier than he’s capable of step foot within the Octagon once more.
