How will Brock Lesnar, Roman Reigns co-exist?

Brock Lesnar hasn’t been seen in WWE since dropping the WWE Championship to new top male Raw star Drew McIntyre at WrestleMania 36. But it’s hard seeing that being the last chapter in the Beast Incarnate’s WWE career. He’ll be back to make another entrance, perhaps as early as in the build to next WrestleMania season when Royal Rumble 2021 rolls around.

As far as we can tell, Lesnar is still a Paul Heyman client, which means Heyman has two megastars on his side. Given how entrenched Lesnar is and how high Reigns has ascended over the years as a multi-time WrestleMania main event hero, Heyman’s never had this much star power at his disposal.

Lesnar and Reigns are too big to co-exist together, and, ultimately, we know that Heyman can only have one major client. And we know that Heyman would have to pick Reigns. He is the present of WWE and the future, whereas Lesnar’s time as the “present” is, unfortunately, winding down.

Watching Lesnar and Reigns dominate over time with the two having an internal battle to one-up each other would be fun. Eventually, the wheels would come off, and Reigns and Lesnar would have one final full-blown rivalry at WrestleMania. And then Heyman would choose the winner, Roman Reigns.
