Paul Heyman explains why Brock Lesnar wanted Roman Reigns in a steel cage match

Brock Lesnar and Paul Heyman were very happy to run a victory lap tonight (Apr. 23) on Raw. In the Universal champion’s first appearance since WrestleMania 34, Heyman was not shy about saying “he told you so”.

While Heyman hyped up his client’s victory to close out WrestleMania 34, he also explained why Lesnar wanted Roman Reigns in a steel cage match. Per Heyman, Lesnar has a fat new contract with the WWE but also still has plans to compete in the UFC. Until Lesnar returns to the Octagon, being locked in a steel cage with Reigns will have to do.

Before Heyman got anymore mic time, Roman Reigns made his way down to the ring for a confrontation. Rather than get physical, Reigns stared down Lesnar and told him he’d be taking his title home with him at the Greatest Royal Rumble.

Who wins this Friday in Saudi Arabia, Brock Lesnar or Roman Reigns?
