Kevin Owens had to fool Paul Heyman and WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns to return to being a contender for the Royal Rumble title. On the last Talking Smack show, Heyman acknowledged to Owens that the play was very good and that they weren’t expecting it at all.

But KO appeared on the show and explained that he had never gotten a match against a certain client of his, referring to Brock Lesnar. But Paul Heyman was not for the job and they have never clashed. Ownes blamed the lawyer himself for that.

I know Heyman’s concern for me is as sincere as when you every time I came to see you for the last four or five years and told you that I wanted to fight the beast incarnate. That never happened because you always turned your back on me, just like you don’t care what happens to me at Royal Rumble, he explained.

The truth is that there was a time when Brock Lesnar and Kevin Owens faced each other, but it was not on television. It was at a WWE live event on March 12, 2017, and they met at Madison Square Garden in New York in a match for the Universal title.
