Did Paul Heyman Hint at a Dean Ambrose Victory?


Paul Heyman’s word choice may have hinted at a Dean Ambrose victory over Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania 32.

Dean Ambrose vs Brock Lesnar may very well be the best match at WrestleMania 32. It features two of the company’s very best all-around performers and with the no holds barred stipulation, it could potentially steal the show.

It’s without a doubt one of the most hyped matches on the card simply because everyone wants to see these two tear each other apart. But who’s going to win? Brock Lesnar has proved to be almost unbeatable as he’s only lost four 1 on 1 matches since returning in 2012 and only two of them featured him actually being pinned (John Cena at Extreme Rules 2012 and Triple H at WrestleMania 29 in 2013). However, Dean Ambrose obviously has a lot more to gain from a victory, so could WWE finally pull the trigger on Ambrose and give him the biggest victory of his career?

It could certainly go either way, but Paul Heyman may have hinted at the result after his promo this past Monday on Raw.

More from Brock Lesnar

On the final Raw before WrestleMania 30, Heyman delivered a promo regarding Lesnar’s upcoming match with the Undertaker. The most infamous part came at the end of the segment.

"“This Sunday WWE presents to you the most historic WrestleMania moment since Hulk Hogan defeated Andre the Giant when my client Brock Lesnar breaks the Undertaker’s undefeated streak at WrestleMania. Now that’s not a prediction. That’s a spoiler.”"

This memorable quote starts at about 3:24 in the video below if you’d like to hear it yourself.

Why is this significant? Because Heyman referred to this statement this week on Raw, saying:

"“I told this to you two years ago, I’ll tell it to you again tonight. This is not a prediction. This is a spoiler. This Sunday night, your winner at WrestleMania and still reigning, defending, undisputed lord, god, and master of the no holds barred street fight-“"

Then Dean Ambrose came out and interrupted. Heyman couldn’t finish the “spoiler” he was going to give as he didn’t actually say Lesnar’s name. And not only was Heyman unable to announce Lesnar as the future winner, Ambrose came out at that exact moment, almost as if his entrance meant he was being presented as the future winner. “This Sunday night, your winner at WrestleMania…” and then out comes Ambrose.

When Heyman said Lesnar beating Undertaker was a spoiler, no one took him seriously until it happened. Then it took on a much bigger meaning because fans realized he actually did give them a spoiler. Since he didn’t finish the spoiler and didn’t actually say Lesnar’s name, could this be a clever bit of foreshadowing in contrast to the Undertaker promo?

Perhaps, or perhaps I’m looking too much into this. But as soon as I realized Heyman didn’t actually utter Lesnar’s name when he was attempting to “spoil” the result and tell us who would win, it seemed that maybe there was a little more to it.

Either way, we’ll find out at WrestleMania.
