In an interview with The New York Post to promote WrestleMania 34, as well as his one-man show in New Orleans during WrestleMania weekend, Paul Heyman discussed several other topics, including the future of Brock Lesnar in the WWE.

“It’s most likely the answer to that is yes. The reasons are rather public. Brock is eyeballing a return to the octagon. He’s made no secret about it. He’s out in Las Vegas at the UFC offices taking a selfie with Dana White wearing a UFC T-shirt. These are not secret negotiations. The fact that both our contracts are coming due is not a secret, either. Is this the last time that Brock Lesnar goes out to the ring in WWE, I truly don’t know that answer because what we’re focused on at the moment is … Brock is very laser focused on the task at hand.

That’s always been his way, since he grew up on a dairy farm in Webster, South Dakota as a kid. [At] 5 a.m. milk the cows, 8 a.m. get the eggs from the chicken. Everything is task oriented. Right now our task is to deliver a memorable main event with Roman Reigns with the Universal title on the line. That happens April 8th. Once we’re done with that task then we’ll focus on what happens after April 8th. It’s just the mindset that Brock Lesnar has and it’s worked for him every since he won an NCAA Division I heavyweight championship.

The three biggest box office attractions in UFC history are Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey and Conor McGregor. Ronda Rousey is now full time with WWE. Conor McGregor is a cottage industry all of his own, which frees up Brock Lesnar to come in and take over as the preeminent box office attraction in UFC.

The UFC needs someone they can bank on and not spend a year negotiating with just getting them into the cage, which is the case with Conor McGregor. If Ronda Rousey ever goes back, it won’t be within the next year, so I think it’s a perfect time for Brock Lesnar because UFC is in desperate need of a top box office attraction and his box office receipts speak for themselves.”
