Brock Lesnar hasn’t defended his belt since WrestleMania 36 when he handed it over to Drew McIntyre. Brock Lesnar is expected While the superstar has been out of commission thus far, Paul Heyman offered a surprise, implying that the Beast Incarnate may be back sooner rather than later. In a recent appearance on SportsTalk 790, the special counsel to current WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns intimated that Lesnar could return to WWE TV once the organization begins live events in July. When asked explicitly about Lesnar’s comeback, Heyman dropped the goods. Asking him about Lesnar is a “very sensible question,” according to the American professional wrestling manager.
Speaking about the history of Reigns vs. Lesnar, Reigns believes his Universal championship run has eclipsed Lesnar’s. Lesnar had a long and historic title run, but he wasn’t “nearly as active as some of our diehard fans had hoped” in between all the injuries and gripes, according to Heyman. He also emphasized his personal role in the process, saying that whatever he has accomplished in the past 30 weeks is unrivaled and that he will continue to build on that legacy and guarantee that this stands out from the rest.
