Ladies and gentlemen, Paul Heyman is the advocate of the WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar. If you watch WWE TV then you’ve probably heard him say that before many times. Lesnar has been WWE’s Universal Champion for 448 days and counting. The last time we saw Lesnar on WWE TV was at the April 27 Greatest Royal Rumble event from Saudi Arabia. At that show, Lesnar retained the Universal Title in a Steel Cage match against Roman Reigns when Reigns hit a Spear on Lesnar that broke the cage and both men landed on the floor at around the same time. It looked like Reigns’ feet touched the floor first while Lesnar was laying on the cage, but the announced decision was that Lesnar is still the champion.
Heyman is known as one of the best talkers in the history of wrestling, but with Lesnar on the sidelines for two months and no return likely until SummerSlam in August, we haven’t seen Heyman address the WWE Universe as much as we would like. Thankfully, Heyman took to social media to comment on potential challengers to Lesnar’s Universal Championship.
First, Heyman responded to a tweet from Raw General Manager Paul Heyman.
Um …. how can I put this diplomatically …. are we going to find out tomorrow morning that someone hacked @RealKurtAngle's Twitter account again? A GM who wants to have credibility, pandering to the social media multiverse as if he has any say who will end up challenging Brock? https://t.co/2mTIuXMMfo

Heyman also commented on a WWE post asking fans who they think should join the Raw match to determine a number one contender against Lesnar.
To the Copywriter and / or Weekend Editor posting on @WWE's twitter account: Your pathetic, desperate attempt at clickbait is worthy not only of scorn, but of an immediate pink slip being issued with the now-famous sendoff, "we wish you well in all your future endeavors!" https://t.co/zWI49k2ndT

Heyman followed up with a post on his Facebook page about the situation.
Exactly what is the criterion being used as the hiring process at WWE.com? I truly believe all those who fail to find employment through Human Resources end up in World Wrestling Entertainment’s version of modified English housed in the digital marketing division. Their latest clickbait is to put up a poll asking you, the WWE Universe, to voice your individual and collective opinion as to whom should be Brock Lesnar’s next challenger. It amazes me that no one has smartened up these recklessly ignorant wannabes and explained to them that Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do. Who’s going to challenge Brock Lesnar for the Universal Championship? Whomever is big enough box office to lure Brock Lesnar into a match that makes Brock Lesnar the type of money he commands for a fight.
Who’s that going to be? Roman Reigns? The second generation superstar who was second to beat Undertaker at WrestleMania, who failed in his second WrestleMania attempt to take the top title from Brock Lesnar, and similarly failed in his second attempt this year alone in Saudi Arabia? No, Brock Lesnar has no interest in the Sloppy Second Samoan! Bobby Lashley? The Man Who Would Be Lesnar? The supposed college standout who won the NAIA Championship because he knew the competition for the Division 1 Championship was too fierce? By the way, remember, when Bobby won the NAIA Title that no one really cared about, Brock Lesnar was making national headlines winning the D1 Heavyweight Championship. When Bobby saw Brock Lesnar ascend to become the biggest box office attraction in UFC, Bobby knew he had no chance against Brock, so he hid behind Scot Coker’s tomato cans in Strikeforce and Bellator, hoping to look good enough to graduate into a once-in-a-lifetime payday position against Brock Lesnar, who has never even heard about Bobby except the few times I mention Bobby’s name to Brock, and always as the punchline to a joke about the pitiful level of pseudo-athletes who think they are even in Brock’s league.
And then there’s the list of Kurt Angle’s Lesnar-less roster members who will forever practice the intellectual masturbation of thinking they are worthy of sharing the bill with the single biggest attraction in either WWE or UFC. When will the decision makers in WWE grow up and realize the unique status Brock Lesnar has achieved? Why do you think I adamantly refuse to ADVOCATE for anyone else? I don’t want to Walk with Elias. I don’t care who Gets Braun Strowman’s Hands; don’t want to know why Bobby Roode thinks he’s Glorious; have no interest in witnessing Finn Balor prove he’s the best in-ring performer on RAW; no inclination to watch Kevin Owens KO his midcard status; don’t know why Kurt Angle even has a job, and don’t want to Burn it Down with Seth Freakin’ Rollins. I want to CONQUER with Brock Lesnar. And until there’s someone who proves themselves to be able to carry their part of the main event, I will continue to ADVOCATE that my client, the reigning defending undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar rejects every request by WWE to exploit his box office appeal and concentrate on more pressing, “Ultimate” opportunities that exist at the moment!
Good job by Heyman of getting people talking with some of his comments. I particularly liked the shots he took at Bobby Lashley.
Lesnar is expected to defend the Universal Championship at SummerSlam. He might lose the title there because that may be the last date of Lesnar’s current contract, but I’ll be honest in saying I thought he was done at WrestleMania and the Greatest Royal Rumble event, so who really knows? I guess we’ll find out together at SummerSlam.
