- WWE has a new poll asking fans if they believe Paul Heyman when he says Brock Lesnar will leave WWE if he drops the Universal Title at SummerSlam. As of this writing, 67% voted, "Yes. If he loses, The Beast Incarnate's next fight will be inside the Octagon against Jon "Bones" Jones." The rest voted, "No. Paul Heyman is bluffing. Even if he loses, The Beast will be back inside a WWE ring sooner rather than later."
