– Paul Heyman recently spoke with The Sporting News to help promote tonight’s WWE Survivor Series pay-per-view.
Heyman was asked if Lesnar, who faces Bill Goldberg in the featured attraction main event of tonight’s show, would have / should have faced had Goldberg not been an option for this year’s Survivor Series show. Heyman, never one without a sharp retort, quickly fired back that had Goldberg not come back to test himself at age 50 against the baddest man in the game today, a “fair fight” would have been Lesnar versus the entire SmackDown LIVE roster.
“If our dance card wasn’t filled by Goldberg this year, I thought the match should be Brock Lesnar versus the SmackDown roster in terms of the inter-promotional offering for Survivor Series because that could be a fair fight. And then next year’s Survivor Series, we could do Brock Lesnar versus the Raw roster since, obviously, the Raw roster would be both jealous and envious of the ease at which Brock Lesnar would dispose of the SmackDown roster.”
As far as his next WrestleMania opponent is concerned, Heyman didn’t give a specific name, but did mention that he expects “The Beast Incarnate,” a RAW-brand Superstar, to either be defeating whoever the WWE Universal Champion is to become the new champion, or he will have already won the gold and will be defending it at the “Show of Shows.”
“I think WrestleMania is the easiest one of all. It’s either Brock Lesnar defending the WWE Universal Heavyweight Championship or Brock Lesnar taking the WWE Universal Heavyweight Championship.”
