Finally, Brock Lesnar's reign as WWE Universal champion has finally come to a close.

Some people are happy Roman Reigns was the man to dethrone the former UFC heavyweight champion, some were not. But, still, the universal opinion (good pun) seems to be that as long as the title is back on Raw every week, it's ok.

One thing that has left fans curious, though, is the future of Lesnar's advocate, Paul Heyman.

The brainchild of ECW never seems to last too long behind the scenes in WWE and has always been prone to a clash with Vince McMahon.

He was once the head writer of SmackDown and he has also been involved with creative for the revived ECW, but both ventures ended in tears.

Heyman is, arguably, at his best when he is on the microphone selling matches and whilst not all of his pairings have been home-runs - Ryback and Curtis Axel spring to mind - but it's undeniable what he added to Lesnar and CM Punk.

Lesnar is now heading back to the UFC to train for a shot at Daniel Cormier's UFC heavyweight title, likely to be in January, so what will Heyman do?

According to the Wrestling Observer, the WWE are considering partnering Heyman with Ronda Rousey moving forward.

Of course, the UFC connections between Rousey and Lesnar are there, as are their similarities in being better performers than they are talkers.

Heyman could add a lot to the Rousey presentation and considering she is on TV every week - or is meant to be - it would give us more of Heyman's genius on the mic.

There haven't been too many male managers of female performers in recent memory either. Teddy Long's relationship with Jazz back in 2002-03 is probably one of the best recent examples.

Now that Rousey is the Raw Women's champion and seems to be connecting well with fans, she may not need Heyman by her side - what do you guys think?
