Longest reigning WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar is done with WWE for now, at least until his fight with UFC Heavyweight Champion Daniel Cormier in 2019 is done and dusted.

But what’s next for “Advocate” Paul Heyman?

Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, that WWE officials are keen on keeping Heyman as an on-screen performer although it’s still unclear who he is gonna be associated with on camera.

RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey had already announced in public of her desire to have Heyman as her manager/advocate. However, with Rousey standing as a babyface ever since she landed in WWE, there is no sign of the former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion turning heel, not until 2019.

There’s another valid reason why WWE might not yet link Rousey with Heyman. And that turns out to be the current feud between Rousey and RAW Commissioner Stephanie McMahon, a rivalry the seeds of which were planted at WrestleMania 31.

The rivalry took off during Rousey’s contract signing when “Rowdy” put Paul “Triple H” Levesque through a table which was followed by a series of events that eventually led to the WrestleMania 34 Mixed Tag Team Match which saw Rousey make her WWE in-ring debut.

With a babyface Rousey on top of the mountain and a heel Stephanie trying to knock her down, it would be interesting to see where this feud leads us to.

On the other hand, Roman Reigns was rumored to turn heel and become the next “Paul Heyman Guy” at SummerSlam. With The Big Dog now standing tall as a babyface Universal Champion, a heel turn for him at this point is again unlikely.

It’s no secret that Heyman has always played the Godfather for Superstars by being a turning point in their careers and pushing them to the top. At this point, there are a couple of guys that might need the legendary manager in their corner badly.

For instance, Dolph Ziggler who once had a promising career in WWE as a future main eventer has slipped to the midcard zone for several years now and direly needs Heyman to get back to the top once he splits with Drew McIntyre. Bobby Lashley is another name that has gone stale even after returning to WWE after 11 years. Lashley couldn’t make much of an impact due to poor bookings on part of the creative and Heyman might be the ideal guy to get “The Dominator” back in the main event scene.
