Now, Lesnar has been playing a subtle mind game with Roman Reigns. He’s been indicating that Heyman knew about his return and failed to inform The Tribal Chief. And, Paul Heyman is desperately trying to convince Reigns he had no idea.

Therefore, Lesnar made Paul Heyman accept a challenge before Roman Reigns fired him. The challenge? The Beast vs The Tribal Chief for the WWE Universal Championship. Even before he could respond to the challenge, Lesnar picked up Heyman to execute an F5, but Reigns saved him with a Superman punch to Lesnar.

However, Lesnar’s challenge was heard. WWE heard him, and booked a match between Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar for WWE Crown Jewel on October 21st, 2021.

Is Brock Lesnar after the Universal Championship or Roman Reigns?

The megastar he is, undoubtedly, The Beast wants to be at the very top. This equates to him becoming the WWE Universal Champion.

If The Universal Championship is the goal, he may need to take a step back and wait for Extreme Rules 2021. Roman Reigns is taking on Finn Balor’s Demon King. If Demon King becomes the New Universal Champion, The Beast may want to change his target opponent.
