Backstage News On Who Paul Heyman Wants To Be Next WWE Universal Champion, Lesnar's Future

Sports Illustrated is reporting that Paul Heyman is pushing for Brock Lesnar to drop the Universal Title at the biggest party of the summer on August 20.

In case you didn't know.

. The announcement lead to much speculation that Lesnar would be dropping the title at the PPV this month in order to take time off WWE for a UFC fight against Jon Jones.

WWE further speculated about Lesnar's departure from WWE for a Jones fight after the latest episode of RAW, where Paul Heyman told Kurt Angle that if Lesnar loses the Universal title at SummerSlam, he will be leaving WWE. It's always possible, albeit unlikely, that Lesnar could have the Jones fight in January, miss the Royal Rumble and the start of the Road to WrestleMania, and return to WWE sometime in February/March to begin his 'Mania feud. The UFC fight has been rumored for November or December of this year. "This all affects the upcoming SummerSlam, as the likelihood that Lesnar keeps the WWE Universal championship, or takes any punishing moves, is all but dimmed, which is another reason he will be hidden in this Fatal 4-Way with Braun Strowman, Roman Reigns, and Samoa Joe".

Mkhitaryan, Mata lead United to friendly win
Antonio Valencia stormed clear on the right wing and fed Mkhitaryan, who then found Matteo Darmian on the left wing. The club did a fantastic job by getting three of them, which is very hard in the insane market we're in now.

Brock Lesnar is signed on with WWE through WrestleMania 34, and there's no chance of him opting out early, but that doesn't mean he won't be losing the belt at SummerSlam. According to the report, Heyman is pushing for Samoa Joe to win the belt and become Universal Champion at SummerSlam.

There's still uncertainty over whether Lesnar will be dropping the Universal title or not at SummerSlam, or if WWE is going to wait till WrestleMania to pull the trigger, but we will know for certain if he retains at SummerSlam.

"Given that Lesnar would need at least two months uninterrupted of a full-time camp to get ready for such a fight, mid-June would figure to be the earliest date likely".
