Drawing inspiration from his father, a trial attorney, Paul Heyman chose the word ‘Advocate’ when presenting his role to WWE in representing The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar on WWE television.
He used it, and it worked.
So, as he’s done at past super shows, The Advocate will once again proudly walk his client -- the WWE Universal Champ -- to the ring at WrestleMania 34 on Sunday, April 8 streaming live on WWE Network from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Lesnar will defend the title against his nemesis Roman Reigns, before another WrestleMania sold-out crowd.
Also during WrestleMania Week, Heyman will be an integral part of the WWE Hall of Fame Ceremony on Friday, April 6 on WWE Network from the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans. He will induct Bill Goldberg.

Heyman discusses in-depth his inspiration to use the term Advocate; what made Goldberg reach top success so quickly; the ECW origins of The Dudley Boyz, who will also be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame; and more. Note: Heyman, who ran ECW in the 1990s, was instrumental in the creative and formation of The Dudley Boyz.
Heyman talks about if his kids have any interest in pro wrestling/sports entertainment; hypothetically becoming The Advocate for new WWE Superstar Ronda Rousey (another former UFC champ) or New York Knicks center and friend Enes Kanter; he and Brock Lesnar’s future after WrestleMania 34 (with their WWE contracts expiring) and more.
