What will happen to Paul Heyman if Brock Lesnar leaves WWE?



Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman are a terrific team and their relationship stretches back years. Heyman speaks on behalf of his client because he is one of the best talkers in the business so all Lesnar has to worry about is showing up and destroying people in the ring.

With Brock Lesnar's WWE contract with possibly one more match left on it, it looks like he'll just wait at home for WWE to figure out when they will book him next. The UFC is also very tempting for Lesnar right now, but we have to wonder what will happen to his righthand man on WWE television if Brock Lesnar exits the company.

"Where does Heyman stand in all of this?" JR asked as he discussed the current situation between Brock Lesnar and WWE on The Ross Report. "Heyman and Brock are so joined at the hip if you will I can't see Lesnar being managed or involved with anyone but Heyman and right now I don't see Heyman being involved with anyone than Lesnar. They're a packaged deal in some shape, form, or fashion they're great assets."

"They're even better together in my estimation and I know someone's saying, 'they could make Ronda a heel and put Heyman with her and everything would be all great' and you might be right but I don't want that to happen at the expense of losing Lesnar. If you can have both. If you can have both if you can have Rousey and Lesnar as well I'm going for that deal."

It sounds like if Jim Ross were still holding his position in WWE Talent Relations that he would be doing all he could to make sure both Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman stick around. Today (6/29/18) is supposedly the last day Brock Lesnar has to re-enter the USADA testing pool if he wants to get back into the Octagon by the big UFC New Year's show. Only time will tell what happens in the situation with the Universal Title but it wouldn't be a bad thing if we got more of The Beast Incarnate and his Advocate.
