Roman Reigns and Paul Heyman were already in the ring. Now, Lesnar entered and sat down on the chair, which did not appeal to The Tribal Chief. Usually, he’s the one who sits on the chair.

Coming to the signing, Reigns asked Heyman to review the contract before signing it. After going through it, Heyman advised Reigns that he can sign the contract. When the contract was passed over to Lesnar, he signed it even without reading it.

Roman Reigns wanted to know why The Beast would sign it without reading it.

“You must be some kind of a dumba**. You just sign it without reading it? What’s wrong with you man?”

But, this is Brock Lesnar. He makes moves even when no one is watching to stay two steps ahead of his opponent.

“Roman, I already read the contract this morning with my advocate Paul Heyman.”

The smirk disappeared from Roman Reigns’ face. Paul Heyman was left shocked, and The Beast left the ring after having the last laugh.

Well, the real question is – who is Paul Heyman loyal to?

The Beast has held the WWE Universal Championship for 504 days. On the other hand, The Tribal Chief has held the title for 411 days. Reigns wants to break this record, and take over Lesnar’s record. Unfortunately, Lesnar stands between Roman Reigns and that dream.

Reigns has successfully defended the title against several opponents such as Finn Balor, Jey Uso, Cesaro, John Cena, and former Superstar Daniel Bryan as well. None of them were quite Brock Lesnar.

At Crown Jewel 2021, Reigns gets one chance to take down The Beast. If he’s successful, he continues his domination. If he’s not, Lesnar revives his former glory.

However, Brock Lesnar is a free agent. It’s unknown if he’s coming back for good or if WWE brought him back to boost the ratings for shows leading to Crown Jewel 2021. Prior to Lesnar, WWE brought back John Cena for the shows leading to SummerSlam 2021.
