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.

In order to keep Brock Lesnar on the mind of their fans, WWE still has plans on bringing Paul Heyman back soon. He is scheduled to work a segment with Michael Cole in regards to the kayfabe lawsuit that the commentator is filing against the former world heavyweight champion. Management still wants that angle to happen, but they are still undecided as to when to pull the trigger. The focus right now has been mainly on the upcoming Extreme Rules.

One of the ideas being thrown around by the creative department right now is do a story line where Michael Cole threatens to sue Brock Lesnar for the injuries that he suffered on the previous episode of Monday Night Raw. WWE might do a thing where Paul Heyman would beg and plead with Cole to drop the charges. The move would give Heyman something to do on television, and it would continue the story line for Lesnar.
