• Possible New Paul Heyman Clients After WrestleMania 34
The Wrap recently noted that both Brock Lesnar & Paul Heyman’s current WWE contracts expire after WrestleMania 34. While word going on right now is that Lesnar will most probably leave WWE, Heyman might be re-signing.
Regarding who would be the next client of Paul Heyman, The Wrap noted that it could either be “The Big Dog” Roman Reigns or “The Baddest Woman on the Planet” Ronda Rousey.
Speaking of Ronda, DirtySheets.Net reported a few months back that WWE are already considering a heel turn for Rousey (if it’s needed) and pairing her with Paul Heyman – thus making her a “Paul Heyman Girl”.
