Paul Heyman has explained why the rematch between Brock Lesnar and The Undertaker is too big for WrestleMania, because he isn’t going to be able to compete at the AT&T Stadium next year after the beating he receives.
Speaking on the Fox Sports podcast ‘The Buzz with Jimmy Traina’ recently to promote SummerSlam this Sunday, Heyman gave his reason why the main event at SummerSlam between The Phenom and his client, The Beast Incarnate, is too big for WrestleMania.
He said: “I said on TV this is the match that’s too big for WrestleMania, and I meant it. I really, really meant it. There is no description to point out how big this match truly is because no-one ever thought they’d ever see a return match between Brock Lesnar and the Undertaker.

“The unfortunate part about this is, I don’t know how many times you’re going to get to see the Undertaker after this match because he’s going to get his a** kicked again. He’s going to get beat up and he’s going to get beat.
“He didn’t just lose to Brock Lesnar [at WrestleMania]. Brock Lesnar delivered such a beating to the Undertaker that he collapsed backstage to a point where Vince McMahon left WrestleMania during the main event to go to the hospital with Undertaker – who stayed in that hospital and needed a full year before he was seen in public again. A full year.
“So if the Undertaker takes the same beating at SummerSlam, what makes you think he’s going to be at the AT&T Stadium?”
It’s not every day that you see Heyman issuing a threat to a man that could probably beat him up with ease. Still, Heyman has been known to speak words of wisdom and this is no exception.
The domination which Lesnar has shown in the ring since the defeating The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania 30 shows how much of a force he has become, and why the Undertaker won’t be able to win this match alone.
Lesnar is unstoppable. He hasn’t lost a match by someone pinning him since he lost to Triple H at WrestleMania 29, and that run will continue this Sunday at SummerSlam. Maybe that’s the next streak which should be conquered, who can defeat The Beast by pinning him?
