While speaking to CBS Sports New York, Paul Heyman discussed a variety of topics regarding his client, Mr. Money in the Bank Brock Lesnar. Paul Heyman talks Lesnar’s UFC retirement, his value to WWE and potential WWE retirement, and even whether or not he’s considered managing anybody else in WWE. Below are some highlights.
Paul Heyman talks the Money In The Bank idea:
Taking a look at the landscape right now, and the emergence of Kofi Kingston as a headline star and the popularity that he’s enjoying, and just how well Seth Rollins is doing as Universal Champion, it was a very easy suggestion for me to make to Brock Lesnar. That there is a lot of box office this summer, with the two champions that are enjoying a wave of popularity in WWE. And we should consider bringing them even higher on the box office food chain and putting one or both of them in the ring with Brock Lesnar.
Paul Heyman on when Brock Lesnar may decide to retire from WWE:
“I would say that any conversation, like that between Brock Lesnar and I, would be considered confidential and privileged in nature. When Brock Lesnar wants information like that revealed to the public, we will do it in the grandest fashion possible.”
