Backstage News on Heyman & Lesnar’s Storyline, Heyman Interested In Working with Punk, More

– We noted yesterday that Paul Heyman is with WWE through August’s SummerSlam pay-per-view and will be representing Brock Lesnar. Heyman is being used as WWE has Lesnar signed for a limited number of dates.

One idea discussed was to have Lesnar “sue” WWE for breach of contract and money owed, playing off the actual legal battle the two sides had years ago. This angle would include all sorts of viral campaigns, something Heyman is experienced with, that would help get it over as a legitimate issue between WWE and Lesnar.

Heyman is not expected to go on the road full-time with WWE and at last word, he was only involved in the Lesnar storyline and not working WWE creative.

While one of the reasons Heyman has returned is to work with close friend Lesnar, word is that he also returned to potentially work with CM Punk down the line. Heyman has much respect for Punk and will work with him on the upcoming Punk DVD release.

Backstage reaction to Heyman at RAW on Monday was positive. He was warmly greeted by the younger talents as some of them knew him from their time in WWE developmental.

    Remember about those reports about TNA trying to get Heyman? Yeah, Heyman will never go there.

    It’s a little known fact that Smackdown was THE far better show year ago, for the all too brief time when Heyman was the head creative guy for that brand.

  • Bill

    From his days as “Bruce” calling Livewire, to the ECW invasions of the 90s on Raw, to his stunt as an agent/GM on Smackdown, Paul Heyman has been apart of so many fantastic creative decisions & moments in pro-wrestling. He NEEDS to be on creative again.

    I agree Heyman knows the business , looked at the platform he gave steve austin with his promos.

  • Cropsy

    I’m so glad Heymen’s back, he’s a wizard on the mic.

  • so this is kinda of like the kevin steen roh thing wow wwe is actually stealing something roh did

  • 1919dpg

    hopefully Lesnar will push for Heyman to have creative input in his angles throughout the year.

    I forget, was he a head writer from OVW or DSW when they were under WWE’s umbrella? I remember him coming up with some interesting stuff, too, even for the developmental territory.

    I have always liked Heyman. The man knows the business.
