Paul Heyman leaves Renee Young wondering what Roman Reigns will need to do in order to defeat Universal Champion Brock Lesnar at SummerSlam. What was Heyman going to say?
Raw General Manager Kurt Angle spared Paul Heyman’s WWE job despite all the chaos last week, but the ECW mastermind might not have been so lucky when it comes to his job with Brock Lesnar.
In a sit-down interview with Renee Young on Raw this week, a haggard, puffy-eyed Heyman was asked to clarify his business relationship with “The Beast Incarnate,” only to heavily imply that their partnership was done.
According to Heyman, “The Conqueror” has disconnected his phone and is refusing to take his longtime advocate’s calls; even though Heyman still considers Lesnar his friend, their “inconceivable” rift seems to have thwarted Heyman’s dream of riding into the sunset at Lesnar’s side with the Universal and UFC Heavyweight Championships in their war chest. As for SummerSlam, Heyman offered this insight: He’s never seen Brock Lesnar so motivated, Roman Reigns “doesn’t stand a chance,” and more than anything, the interview he had just sat for would do little more than make “The Beast” that much angrier.
Heyman ended the interview with Young by saying Reigns doesn’t stand a chance against Lesnar at SummerSlam. WWE posted a clip of the unaired final portion of the interview, with Heyman saying “unless” before he stops to finish his thought. Renee asks him to finish his thoughts a few times, but Heyman takes his microphone off and simply walks off the set.
