#5 Mr. Kennedy
One of the most favorite guys of Paul Heyman back in time when he was managing OVW was Mr. Kennedy. Heyman saw Kennedy as the future of WWE though it truly never happened.
At that point in time, Heyman told Kennedy once that "he's closely observing him for a long time now and he's a fan of him. He went on to say that he's going to give him more screentime here in OVW that he will have so many things to do. And WWE will eventually call him up on the main roster".
This indeed happened as Mr. Kenndy was promoted to SmackDown brand just after his six-month stay with OVW. But the things weren't too fortunate for him as he was later released by WWE due to a botched move (back body drop) he made on Randy Orton in a multi-man tag match on an episode of RAW (2009).
After his stint with WWE, he was signed by TNA but his relationship with Heyman was never broken. He used to take some help from Heyman over the phone to make his promos better in TNA. And Paul didn't hesitate for a second in doing so which shows what Mr. Kennedy was meant for him.
