“Here we had, without question, the most physically impressive athlete to enter WWE in ages and the single most gifted athlete at the very same time. They don’t usually go together,” Heyman said. “Not to highlight the athleticism of this NCAA athlete, Division I heavyweight champion is to leave untold billions on the table. [So] the advice I gave was quite simple: We need to highlight your athleticism in conjunction with your size and look to where people say, ‘I’ve very rarely seen someone this big, but never someone this big who can move like that.’”
There has been some conflicting information about Lesnar’s next title defense, however, with Sportskeeda reporting that Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 34 is still the plan and that at SummerSlam, Brock Lesnar will face Braun Strowman for the Universal Championship. The fact that Braun Strowman defeated Roman Reigns at Great Balls of Fire might be read as evidence supporting the idea that Strowman will be Lesnar’s opponent, but there’s still six weeks to go until SummerSlam, and that’s plenty of time for Roman to regain the upper hand and establish himself as the number one contender.
"I strike for a reason when I strike, and I feel like Stipe is relatively unknown to the general public," Jones said. "It wouldn't even be a real superfight in my opinion. I think MMA fans would be really excited, but the general public wouldn't care about that fight. Most people don't know who he is, with all due respect to him. I think Brock would be a fight that makes way more sense, and the payday would be tremendous and what it would do to our sport would be tremendous. It would make a much bigger impact. That's why a Brock Lesnar fight makes way more sense."
