Paul Heyman and the WWE did too good of a job of selling the fans on a possible Roman Reigns-Advocate story line.
Heyman is a desperate man. In a sense, after nearly four years of trying, Reigns is a desperate to finally defeat Brock Lesnar for the Universal title. The enemy of my enemy is my friend and maybe Heyman and Reigns need each other more than they are willing to admit.
In one segment on this week’s episode of Raw, Heyman and Reigns went all in on the slim possibility of the pair forming an alliance versus Lesnar at SummerSlam.

Then right when everyone was on the hook for six days of speculation, Heyman hit Reigns in the eyes with pepper spray and Lesnar came down to the ring to beat the hell out of a wounded Big Dog.
