Something is up with Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman



During tonight's episode of WWE Friday Night SmackDown, Paul Heyman was interviewed by Kayla Braxton but the interview was interrupted by a phone call.

The phone rang with Brock Lesnar's music as the ringtone. Heyman picked up the phone and the person on the line (presumably Lesnar) told Heyman to deliver a message to someone (presumably Roman Reigns).

This appears to be the setup for an eventual Lesnar vs. Reigns match for the Universal Championship but it seems like the plan is for the match to happen much sooner than WrestleMania.

Dave Meltzer reported this week that he believes that Lesnar vs. Reigns may happen at WrestleMania since The Rock is not locked in for next year's show and it's more likely that The Rock vs. Reigns will happen at WrestleMania 39 in 2023. However, it was noted that since WWE makes more money for their shows in Saudi Arabia, they could decide to headline next month's Crown Jewel show with Reigns and Lesnar next month.

The story that is playing out on WWE TV is that Heyman is indebted to Reigns but fans are supposed to wonder if Heyman will turn on him to go back to Lesnar.

UPDATE: Later in the show, Paul Heyman told Roman Reigns that Lesnar will be at SmackDown next week in Madison Square Garden.
