Paul Heyman Hints That Brock Lesnar Doesn’t Want To Face Roman Reigns Again
If Brock Lesnar returns to the WWE in the near future, fans shouldn’t get their hopes up about another program with Roman Reigns.
That’s because according to Reigns’ Special Counsel, Paul Heyman, Lesnar has no desire to square off against the Universal Champion again.
During an interview with DAZN, Heyman explained that another match between Reigns and Lesnar would have happened by now if the latter actually wanted it.
“If Brock Lesnar were to return, if is a hypothetical,” Heyman said. “Brock Lesnar does what Brock Lesnar wants to do. How you can be cognizant of the fact that Brock Lesnar does not want to challenge Roman Reigns for the Universal championship, or at least not yet, is because he hasn’t done it. Because if Brock Lesnar wanted to it, it would have happened already. And it hasn’t happened already because he doesn’t want to.”
Heyman added that it’s up to Lesnar to decide if he wants to share his “reasons” for being against the idea of having another rematch with Reigns.
Reigns and Lesnar competed in the main event of WrestleMania 31 for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship. However, their night was spoiled when Seth Rollins cashed in his Money in the Bank contract to win the match and the title.
Reigns faced Lesnar for the Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34 and at the Greatest Royal Rumble, losing on both occasions. He defeated Lesnar on his third try at SummerSlam 2018 to finally win the title.
Lesnar hasn’t appeared on WWE programming ever since he lost his WWE title to Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. Heyman was kept off of television for nearly five months before returning on the Aug. 28 episode of SmackDown, when Reigns revealed their partnership.

Lesnar isn’t under contract with WWE at this time, and it’s unclear at this time if he’ll return to the company.
We Don’t Need Lesnar Vs. Reigns Again
A Lesnar vs. Reigns match may be more enticing now compared to three years ago. For one, Reigns has rebuilt himself as a top-notch heel on SmackDown. The whole Paul Heyman factor would also make a Lesnar-Reigns feud all the more interesting, too.
But we’ve seen these two feud enough times, and there isn’t much more to accomplish. It also wouldn’t make much sense to run a program between two heels, and WWE shouldn’t even think about a face turn for either of them.
