Paul Heyman is currently in the UK taking part in his ‘An Evening with Paul Heyman’ tour, and his latest appearance in Glasgow featured some interesting comments that will send the WWE Universe into a frenzy.
Perhaps the most controversial moment in WWE history saw Brock Lesnar conquer The Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania XXX, but Heyman has suggested that all is not what it seems and that The Deadman was originally scheduled to walk out of New Orleans as the winner.
WAS IT A SHOOT?
WrestlingInc.com have reported that Heyman was suggesting the notion that the plan was for Lesnar to lose The Undertaker.

However, in a shoot, Lesnar beat down The Undertaker so bad after hitting three consecutive F5’s, that he couldn’t kick out once he had hooked his leg.
“Is it me f*****g with you or am I telling you something you’re not supposed to know?” - Paul Heyman
This coincides with another revelation from Heyman earlier this week, revealing that Lesnar originally wanted to face CM Punk at the same WrestleMania.
When Vince McMahon shot down the idea and told him he’d face The Undertaker instead, Lesnar told Heyman he’d find a way to be the one in 21 and one.
He went on to explain that once it had happened, the WWE couldn’t fire Lesnar because he just conquered the streak, and the only way to get past that situation was to go with Lesnar genuinely ending the streak.
The big doubt in fans’ minds regarding the result was when it took a while for Lesnar’s music to hit, leading to a lot of confusion.
Heyman also went on to address that, saying that’s the reason it took a while for his music to play after he had won the match, and it’s why The Undertaker collapsed as soon as he got through the curtain.
It’s up to the fans to either believe him or not; he told the audience that if his story isn’t true, only he, Lesnar and Vince knew that the streak was going to end.
