Paul Heyman declares Brock Lesnar is ready for Sunday, and more
In a recent interview with WWE announcer Scott Stanford for New York station PIX11, Paul Heyman opened up about various topics including his client Brock Lesnar’s return to Royal Rumble, the NFL playoffs and more – reports dailywrestlingnews.com.
On the question of the outcome of Monday night’s RAW, which saw a cliffhanger involving the Wyatt Family standing over Brock Lesnar, Heyman stated that he has no clue about the climax whatsoever, but refused to rule out the possibility of the other 29 competitors having a go at Lesnar, but noted that whoever crossed paths with Brock would be properly ‘dealt with’.
Heyman also reserved praise for current World Heavyweight Champion Roman Reigns, labelling him as a legit wrestler and the best of the best.
However, while he gave a glowing report of Reigns he refused to consider him superior to his client, and stated that Reigns might have dominated the Rumble had Brock not been a part of it.
When the topic of 2016 WWE Hall of Famer Sting and his legacy came about, Heyman remarked that Sting doesn’t really boast of a legacy in the WWE, but praised the franchise for acknowledging another promotion’s contributions to the industry.
Heyman’s point of view is bound to be taken seriously as its common knowledge that he’s one of the most respected figures in wrestling not only because of his contribution to Extreme Championship Wrestling but also for his marketing prowess with his agency Looking4Larry.
The 50-year-olds credentials in WWE are no pushover either, with his style of management producing five champions in the form of Brock Lesnar, Big Show, Kurt Angle, Rob Van Dam and CM Punk. Considered a genius in the wrestling business, Heyman has been praised by fans and critics alike for his management and microphone skills.
