After the less-than-shocking footage of Paul Heyman, Brad Maddox and The Shield was shown on Raw two weeks ago, we saw the return of Paul Heyman's client, Brock Lesnar.

Lesnar saved Heyman from being fired by attacking Vince McMahon, thus returning to WWE in the process.

This means Paul Heyman now has two clients in Brock Lesnar and the former WWE champion, CM Punk.

This situation creates several questions about what the future holds for Paul Heyman, CM Punk and Brock Lesnar.

Will they group together as a team?

Will Heyman manage them separately?

Will he choose one client to focus on and leave the other in the wind?

How does Lesnar feel about Heyman calling CM Punk the best in the world so many times?

And lastly, what are the odds of a future CM Punk vs. Brock Lesnar match?

With Brock Lesnar recently signing a new deal with WWE it means there are all sorts of possible feuds he could partake in, and one the fans would love to see would be with CM Punk.

The attack on McMahon all but signals a rematch between McMahon's son-in-law, Triple H and Lesnar, but after WrestleMania there are plenty of ways WWE could go with Lesnar.

The storyline for a feud between Punk and Heyman practically writes itself. Heyman manages both guys, with one of them eventually feeling ignored by Heyman.

There are a couple of confrontations, and eventually one of them turns babyface and they have a match. It is a simple plan, which is what makes it all the more likely to occur.

Punk vs. Lesnar is one of those so-called "dream matches" because both men have been considered the best in the company at one point, but never during the same time.

Lesnar's MMA background and Punk's public love for MMA and integration of its moves into his moveset means the match would be one unlike anything we have ever seen in WWE.

This wouldn't be a rehash of something like Ken Shamrock vs. Steve Blackman. Lesnar and Punk both started as wrestlers, where as Shamrock and Blackman started as fighters before moving to wrestling.

Lesnar and Punk both know how to tell stories in the ring, and together they could write a whole volume on what a great match is supposed to look like.

An encounter like this would have everything; Brawling, throws, submission holds and tons of great action.

It would sell out whatever arena the match took place in, and it would probably be a hot seller as a pay-per-view as well.

The only real road block here is deciding which superstar would turn babyface. Punk would be the obvious choice, but Lesnar is still quite popular to the point where he could easily get the crowd on his side.

Vince likes to make money, and this is a money-making feud.
