Brock Lesnar has become one of the most destructive forces in WWE over the past three years, from conquering The Undertaker’s Undefeated Streak at WrestleMania XXX to destroying John Cena at SummerSlam in 2015 with 16 German Suplex’. Brock Lesnar has walked his own path in WWE.
But alone Lesnar isn’t much of a threat, it is only when he is partnered with Paul Heyman that he becomes lethal to all Superstars in his way.
These two stars have been together since the beginning. Heyman is the only man who can talk for Lesnar and the only man that Lesnar allows to speak for him, and together they have conquered WWE.
Even though Brock lost his last match to Goldberg, it seems that The Beast will be returning to WWE at the Royal Rumble to reclaim what is left of his pride. Heyman will be in toe as always and hopefully, Brock will be able to extract the revenge he requires if he meets Goldberg again inside the 30-man match.
Now, even though Heyman and Lesnar have a huge following in WWE right now, there is not a lot known about them outside of the company, or outside of the TV cameras, so the following are 15 facts that every WWE fan should know about the relation between Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar.
15. The Lines Between UFC And WWE Are Never Blurred
Brock Lesnar made his successful return to UFC last year, when he easily defeated Mark Hunt back at UFC 200. The build up to that match saw WWE and UFC join forces by allowing Lesnar to appear for the company while still under contract with WWE.
Many fans thought that Heyman would once again be there to walk Lesar down the ramp, but instead, Heyman wrote on social media that there was no reason for him to be there. He couldn’t help Brock win this fight, and it would be strange for him to not be by Lesnar’s side. But Heyman thinks that he has a genuine purpose when he is with Lesnar in WWE. Meanwhile he doesn’t feel the same about UFC.
14. Real Friends Lie For Each Other
Paul Heyman in many ways is the real ‘The Voice of the Voiceless.’ He has made a living out of talking for WWE Superstars over the past decade, and no one does it as well as Heyman. The former SmackDown General Manager even managed to start a conspiracy theory after Brock Lesnar defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania XXX.
Heyman stated that Brock decided to shoot and beat The Undertaker so bad that he couldn’t kick out. Claiming that Lesnar hooked The Undertaker’s leg in a way that he couldn’t escape and then he ended The Streak. He said that WWE couldn’t fire him because he had just ended The Streak, so they then had to do something else with him. Heyman made so much sense that fans are actually now confused as to which theory is true.
13. Brock Lesnar is Paul Heyman’s Best Friend
Back in 2013, Heyman was on top of the world. He was working with both Brock Lesnar and CM Punk and both men were making a huge impact on WWE TV as two of the top stars on the roster.
Heyman recalls that this was the highlight of his career. He is very close to both men and loved that he was able to work with two of his best friends. Heyman always believed in both Punk and Lesnar and was there for the ups and downs of both men’s career. Heyman stayed with them and helped them climb to the top in the company. It seems as though Paul Heyman is the perfect kind of friend and one that everyone should have at some point in their lives.
12. Both Men Have Similar Opinions On Things
They say that our similarities make us strong, but our differences make us stronger, and it seems that even though Brock and Paul Heyman are very different people both inside and outside, they have similar opinions when it comes to UFC and WWE.
Both men have recently stated that they think Conor McGregor would make an excellent addition to the WWE locker room, Heyman even going as far as building up a match between Lesnar and McGregor in the not too distant future. It seems that these two men share much more than an advocate/client relationship, they also share many common opinions. This is most likely the case as to why Heyman is the only person allowed to speak on behalf of Lesnar in WWE.
11. Lesnar Is Heyman’s Most Successful Client
It is well known in the WWE that if you want to be successful then you should ask to be partnered with Paul Heyman. Superstars like the Big Show, Cesaro, CM Punk ,and Brock Lesnar have all been pushed forward thanks to Paul Heyman and his incredible ability to get things done.
That being said, Brock Lesnar is definitely the most successful client of Heyman given that he is a former WWE World Heavyweight Champion and the person who ended The Undertaker’s legendary streak almost three years ago. He was also unpinned for more than three years following his loss to Triple H at WrestleMania XXIX back in 2013. While Lesnar recently lost to Goldberg, there is no reason to believe that his success in WWE will not continue.
