Paul Heyman is set to address the WWE Universe.
Last Friday night, after Paul Heyman admitted that he was protecting Roman Reigns from Brock Lesnar, the Universal Champion fired his Special Council and levelled him with a Superman Punch. Tensions had been building between the two ever since Lesnar's return at SummerSlam and Roman's sneaking suspicion that Heyman wasn't telling the truth about his knowledge of Brock's whereabouts.
Tomorrow, on a special Christmas Eve edition of SmackDown, Heyman will speak for the first time since being banished from the Island of Relevancy.
WWE issued the following release:
Last Friday, Universal Champion Roman Reigns absolutely floored the WWE Universe (and Paul Heyman) when he hugged his Special Council and thanked him for 40 years of service to his family before viciously firing him with a Superman Punch out of nowhere.
Now, quite literally a man without an Island (of Relevancy), Heyman will speak for the first time since being let go with extreme prejudice.
Find out what the former Special Council has to say this Friday at 8/7 C on FOX.
The card for tomorrow's show can be seen below.
