As seen earlier, Paul Heyman cut a dark promo before Tuesday night’s WWE SmackDown tapings that ended up being posted to YouTube. No word yet if it will air on Friday’s SmackDown but as of earlier this week, WWE was going with the idea of keeping Heyman off TV for a while. Heyman was reportedly not at Monday’s RAW in Brooklyn
That plan could change but they don’t want to call attention to the fact that the WWE World Heavyweight Champion is away and missing pay-per-view events. As noted, Brock Lesnar isn’t scheduled to return until January.
