Paul Heyman sat down for an interview with Josh Martinez of Z100 in New York, where he revealed that the Beast incarnate may never return to the Octagon again. Heyman said,
“He has nothing left to prove in MMA. He can make a lot more money in the WWE.” Noting The Beast Incarnate has been there and done that, Lesnar is more likely to “have a shootout in soccer with Messi” than he would go back to the world of MMA. “… he has already done the MMA schtick.”
