Amidst the rumors that Brock Lesnar has not yet confirmed his participation for SummerSlam, Paul Heyman went on a long rant on Facebook after WWE.COM posted a poll asking who should be Brock Lesnar’s next opponent.
“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,” Heyman wrote, blasting WWE’s “latest clickbait.”
Heyman said that Lesnar fights whoever is of a big enough box office and no-one else. He referred to Roman Reigns as the “Sloppy Second Samoan,” made fun of Bobby Lashley and his MMA career for being a Lesnar wannabe, and many others on the roster.
“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,” Heyman continued.
“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.”
Heyman closed the rant saying that he and Brock will instead continue to concentrate on “Ultimate” opportunities that exist at the moment, a subtle reference to the UFC.
