Brock Lesnar made his umpteenth return to WWE last August 21 at SummerSlam, where he intervened at the end of the main event that had seen Roman Reigns prevail over John Cena. The former Universal champion launched the challenge to the 'Tribal Chief', only to then rage on the leader of the 'Cenation' with a series of suplexes and a devastating F-5.
The showdown between the Beast and Reigns is likely to take place at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia or directly at the Survivor Series. While he's been a controversial and often overlooked character in the WWE Universe, Lesnar has been at the center of some truly epic moments over the past decade.
In 2014, Brock defeated The Undertaker at WrestleMania 30, ending his legendary 'Streak', considering that the 'Deadman' had won all 21 'Showcase of the Immortals' matches to date. The result of that match was unanimously recognized as one of the most shocking in wrestling history.
In a recent interview with Josh Martinez for 'Z100 New York', Paul Heyman was asked to tell the moment when they learned that WWE management was planning to make Brock triumph.
Paul Heyman opens up on Brock Lesnar
"I think the right question to ask is this: When did Brock Lesnar find out he was going to defeat The Undertaker at WrestleMania?" - began the former owner of ECW.
"We understood that when they told us that Brock would be Undertaker's opponent in Mania. There I sensed that the outcome of the match might not have been the usual Gravedigger victory. I immediately revealed that feeling of mine to Lesnar” - added Paul Heyman.
The Undertaker officially retired from the scene last year at the Survivor Series, not before receiving a beautiful tribute from friends and colleagues. After the one against Lesnar in 2014, 'Phenom' suffered another painful defeat at WrestleMania against Roman Reigns in 2017.
According to rumors, Roman should have been in place of Lesnar in 'Mania 30' Finn Balor and Brock Lesnar had a great match when they last clashed. Now they will face a common foe in Roman Reigns, which means they may be forced to team up to overhaul the numbers.
Finn Balor and Brock Lesnar working side by side will also solidify the latter as a babyface, something that needs to be spelled out in bold. Finn Balor is scheduled to go one-on-one with Roman Reigns at Extreme Rules and we know we're getting a Roman Reigns vs.
Brock Lesnar match at some point down the line. We also know that if Brock Lesnar shows up at WWE SmackDown in MSG, The Usos will team up with Roman Reigns to take him down. Simply put, he needs a backup and he can get it from Finn Balor.
