If things don't work out between Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar, it looks like "The Advocate" could have a backup "Beast" just in case.
For years we've seen Heyman at the side of Lesnar as he runs rampant through the WWE, downing some of the biggest stars the industry has ever seen, capturing several World Titles, and establishing himself as the most dominant force in the company today. While Lesnar and Heyman's relationship on screen seems to be all good, it turns out that he and the ex-UFC heavyweight champ don't always get along.
One man who equals Lesnar is size, history, and athletic backgrounds is IMPACT Wrestling's Bobby Lashley. Lashley formerly worked in WWE as well and once reigned as ECW Champion. He never got the opportunity to face off with Lesnar but it has been described as a dream match of sorts in the wrestling community.
Recently Lashley spoke to Main Event Radio to discuss several professional wrestling topics and was asked about Lesnar. He discussed the possible match-up with "The Beast" and noted it's something he gets asked about a lot (quotes via Wrestling Inc.):
"There's not too much time left on my contract but I like it here. There are some big fights and big matches that people are constantly bugging me about that I have to consider.
"The only natural one is Brock [Lesnar]. Whether it's in fighting or wrestling, that match needs to happen. If he retires without doing that match, it's stupid.
"If I retire before doing that match, it's stupid. I could post a picture of my kids or of me eating a Popsicle and people will ask me when I'm going back to WWE or when I'll go against Brock.
"It's one of those things that if the fans want it and beg for it enough, it'll happen."
Lashley also described his relationship with Paul Heyman. He claims that every time Heyman and Lesnar engage in a spat, Heyman calls Lashley to see how he's doing. From the sound of the description, it sounds like Lashley is Heyman's "side chick":
"I'm going to send Paul [Heyman] another tweet. Paul will reach out to me out of nowhere with a tweet or text. Those are the times where Brock kind of pisses him off a little bit.
"Then he calls me and sees how I'm doing. Then him and Brock make up and he disappears. I think Paul says if Brock pisses him off enough and he needs to bring someone in to shut him up I'm the man.
"But then they make up and he leaves me alone. Then I get another tweet out of nowhere and then he disappears again. It's kind of like the boyfriend and girlfriend, where the boyfriend says hes going to cheat on her and then she cooks him dinner and he changes his mind.
"Heyman is a big tease to me. I am the side chick. I'm okay with it. The side chick usually gets whatever she wants at the end of the day. Maybe it'll happen one day – Lesnar vs Lashley."
What are your thoughts on Heyman calling up Bobby Lashley whenever he gets into a spat with Brock Lesnar? Do you think that it's possible Heyman could serve as Lashley's advocate down the line?
