WWE Hall of Famer comments on Paul Heyman's role in the company

Wrestling legend Teddy Long recently praised Paul Heyman and claimed that The Wiseman of The Bloodline has matured a lot over the years.

Teddy Long participated in this year's WWE Draft and spotted Heyman helping superstars backstage. Speaking on Sportskeeda Wrestling's The Wrestling Time Machine podcast with Bill Apter and Mac Davis, Long spoke highly of Heyman and noted that the veteran was helping out backstage as much as he could.

"He's really matured a lot," Long stated. "I mean, his job, I see him helping the guys out as much as he can. He's got a spot right there in Gorilla [backstage area], and so a lot of guys go over and talk to him before they go out for their matches and stuff. I see Paul, yeah, very mature, man. He's doing good." [9:27 – 9:43]
