Paul Heyman appeared on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show on ESPN on Wednesday and discussed a several subjects, including Brock Lesnar and his time as executive on Monday Night Raw.
As we know, Lesnar has not been seen on WWE television since he lost to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania.
Heyman commented on Brock’s free agent status:
“It depends on if there’s a worthy challenger and enough box office appeal,” Heyman said. “Right now, he’s very happy being a farmer and a magnificent father to his children. However, if there’s something that WWE can offer that intrigues, motivates, or inspires Lesnar, and if the money is right and the business is solid, I’m sure he would be willing to do it.”
A UFC return was not ruled out, however on a WWE return, Heyman said:
“At this moment, [a comeback] hasn’t happened because [a worthy offer] isn’t there. Again, the world changes with the snap of a finger. It could be tomorrow when Lesnar says, ‘Oh, that intrigues me.’ Again, it’s not just a sound bite, but Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do.”
Heyman also went on to discuss his one year run as executive producer on Raw:
“Vince’s only comment was ‘I thought he did a great job creatively.’ My run in terms of serving at the pleasure of the chairman was up, and then this opportunity presented itself both for me, for Roman and for WWE and we all jumped on it.”
Whilst we agree that The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns has reached a new level, with Paul Heyman on board, it adds an authenticity and with him helping creative, it’s showing on screen.
