Paul Heyman praises Indian cricket star, calls out Cricket World Cup

Lesnar & Mahal & Heyman & Singh Brothers

Though Brock Lesnar has a Universal Title to defend against Finn Bálor at WWE Royal Rumble, it didn’t stop his advocate, Paul Heyman, from recently taking to Twitter to praise Team India cricket player Mahendra Singh Dhoni, or to call out the Cricket World Cup for “borrowing” the catchphrase Heyman uses for his client.

Following Heyman’s royalty demands, representatives from the International Cricket Council offered the advocate and his client tickets to attend the Cricket World Cup. Heyman didn’t seem opposed to the offer, though his response strongly implied that doing so meant that he and Lesnar were entitled to even further compensation.

Whether or not the “reigning, defending, undisputed Universal Champion” and his “humble advocate” will attend the Cricket World Cup remains to be seen. For now, the WWE Universe in India has simply enjoyed following the exchanges between both parties, and in voting on Twitter (@WWEIndia) about whether or not they’d like to see MS Dhoni as a surprise Men’s Royal Rumble Match entrant.

WWE Royal Rumble streams live this Sunday on WWE Network at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. (Monday at 5:30 a.m. IST, on WWE Network and Sony Ten 1 HD.)
