All in the day of The Advocate.
Our boss Paul Heyman took on the cricket world, teasing them over paraphrasing Eat Sleep Conquer Repeat, and the hilarity started from there.
Compiling multiple posted press reports, here’s a review:
After an entertaining Twitter banter over a tweet praising MS Dhoni, Paul Heyman and his client WWE universal champion Brock Lesnar have been offered tickets to the Cricket World Cup 2019.
Paul Heyman was offered this tickets by the official handle of Cricket World Cup after he demanded royalties for a tweet praising MS Dhoni by the cricket account.
After the former Indian skipper scored three back to back half-centuries including two unbeaten ones in the recent ODI series against Australia, Cricket World Cup official Twitter account posted, “Eat. Sleep. Finish games. Repeat. Life as @msdhoni.” with a picture of a beaming Dhoni.

Reacting to the tweet, Paul Heyman too hailed Dhoni’s performance calling him ‘amazing’ but also asked for a royalty for the use of the Brock Lesnar’s mantra “Eat Sleep Conquer Repeat.”
My most (in)sincere compliments to @cricketworldcup for promoting the amazing @msdhoni by paraphrasing my mantra for @WWE #UniversalChampion @BrockLesnar #EatSleepConquerRepeat. Our royalties may be paid in cash, check, stock or cryptocurrency. https://t.co/sGtIALzso1

Joining in the fun, the Cricket World Cup official Twitter account offered Heyman and Lesnar tickets to the 2019 World Cup in England. On Monday evening, it posted, “How about tickets to the @cricketworldcup for you and @BrockLesnar?”
How about tickets to the @cricketworldcup for you and @BrockLesnar? 🏏

However, Heyman did come up with yet another cheeky reply to the offer. Heyman thanked Cricket World Cup for their offer, while cheekily saying that the event was “exploiting the fame/notoriety” of him and the defending WWE Universal champion. He went on to ask for an “8 figure appearance fee offer”.
Thank you for your interest in expanding your global audience even further by exploiting the fame/notoriety of #YourHumbleAdvocate and the reigning defending undisputed @WWE Universal Champion @BrockLesnar. I look forward to your 8 figure appearance fee offer. https://t.co/4GLsTDt2Zf
