The ‘Special Counsel’ to Roman Reigns, Paul Heyman, recently gave an interview to DAZN. Heyman spoke about a lot of things, from his return alongside Roman Reigns to a possible return of ‘The Beast Incarnate’ against ‘The Tribal Chief.’

Paul Heyman answered in a fashion only he can. He said the question was good, but it was hypothetical. He revealed that is because Lesnar does what he wants to.

Heyman added, “How you can be cognizant of the fact that Brock Lesnar does not want to challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal championship, or at least not yet, is because he hasn’t done it. Because if Brock Lesnar wanted to it, it would have happened already. And it hasn’t happened already because he doesn’t want to.”

Paul Heyman also added that Brock Lesnar is a very private man. He loves it on his farms with his family and has no interest in any social profiles.

Basiclly, everything he does is on his terms. If Lesnar wants to appear in public, he does. It’s not the other way around.

There is one thing for sure. Brock Lesnar has no interest in facing Roman Reigns as of now. Lesnar and Reigns have faced each other countless times, including two WrestleMania main events. We can understand that Lesnar may be feeling he’s done all that he could with Reigns.

However, we don’t believe it. Every time Lesnar and Reigns faced, it was before Reigns’ transformation into the ‘Tribal Chief.’ He was the ‘Big Dog’ back then. Now, he is an unstoppable dominant force. It will also be interesting to see where Heyman decides to incline if Lesnar returns.

Do you think Brock Lesnar will return to fight Roman Reigns? Let us know in the comments below!
