Paul Heyman, the “advocate” for the former UFC Heavyweight Champion, Brock Lesnar is not averse to controversy. The former head of Philadelphia based Extreme Championship Wrestling and at one time rumored to try and put together a group to purchase the former Strikeforce promotion appeared on WWE’s Raw program last night.
In the final segment of the show setting up Lesnar’s fatal fourway match at this Sunday’s Summerslam event in Brooklyn, Heyman not so subtly stated that if his client lost the WWE Universal Title (the Raw brand’s major title), that both Heyman and Lesnar would leave the WWE. Heyman went as so far to say…
“You might as well lock this beast up in a cage… wink wink”

With that tease, as well as Lesnar potentially returning to the USADA testing pool after “retiring” after defeating Mark Hunt at UFC 200, but tested positive for a banned substance soon after, the potential Jon Jones matchup with the man known as the mayor of “Suplex City,” may happen sometime next year.
Lesnar as of now is still under contract to World Wrestling Entertainment till April of 2018, but was given dispensation by the Stamford based Sports Entertainment brand to fight Hunt at the 200th UFC Pay-Per-View.
