Initially, Paul Heyman was supposed to make his return before Brock Lesnar by working segments with Michael Cole about the story line lawsuit that is taking place. Lots of ideas were being discussed backstage on how to make that happen. However, it appears that WWE could not decide on a good one, as it is now being reported that Heyman is not scheduled to make his return to television until July. That is when Lesnar is scheduled to be back.

The contract between Brock Lesnar and WWE does not expire until after Wrestlemania is over. However, that is not stopping Bellator from starting their pursuit of the former NCAA wrestling champion. Scott Coker confirmed through a recent interview that he has already made contact with Lesnar. In order to prevent a potential tampering lawsuit, Coker also made sure to mention that there was no negotiations taking place during the talks.
