Paul Heyman referenced Brock Lesnar during WWE Hall of Fame ceremony.

Paul Heyman officially took his place in the WWE Hall of Fame class of 2024 on April 5. During his speech, Heyman recapped his career as best and quickly as he could in the allotted time. Heyman talked about being a disruptor, not being canceled, leading ECW and joked with Stephanie McMahon. He even had props for the ECW portion of his speech and said that if you think the spirit of ECW died in 2001, you could suck his dick.

In running down his accomplishments, and the talent he's worked with, Heyman did note that he was the advocate for Brock Lesnar, giving his trademark announcement of Lesnar.

In the induction video for Heyman, Lesnar was not shown or mentioned. The only reference of Lesnar was showing Heyman being the man who managed the "1 in 21-1," but Lesnar was absent from the highlight.

Brock was implicated, but not outright named, in a lawsuit brought forth by Janel Grant against Vince McMahon and WWE. The lawsuit alleges that Vince McMahon used Ms. Grant in a sexual manner to keep "a world-famous athlete and former UFC Heavyweight Champion with whom WWE was actively trying to sign to a new contract."

Lesnar was pulled from creative plans after the lawsuit was filed.
