Heyman Talks About Almost Not Returning to WWE, Lesnar and More

– Paul Heyman made a special appearance on Mark Madden’s radio show in Pittsburgh yesterday to talk about WWE SummerSlam. Here are some highlights:

* He at first turned down Brock Lesnar’s invitation to come back to WWE with him. Heyman said he felt WWE doesn’t know how to promote Brock as a fighter. Heyman feels he was brought back in part because he knows how to market Brock’s fighter persona.

* He wasn’t sure if he was brought back with another Superstar how well his mic work would have went but his relationship is natural with Lesnar.

* There have been no problems working with Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. He thinks they enjoy having someone who rips them because it gives people a reason to get behind them and cheer them more.

* Heyman feels Lesnar had his run in MMA but if the deal was right, he would very much consider it.

* Heyman said it’s easy to say no, he would not run another wrestling promotion but if someone came to him and offered the right deal and the right freedom, then he would consider it. He doesn’t think it will happen.

    VKM will NEVER let someone else ‘save’ his wwe, especially a fellow/former promoter who vince knows can kick ass and take names, in regards to wrestling booking and stories. VKM will cut his nose to spite his face until he dies, which is very unfortunate for us, fans. Just give Heyman a role which is “good for business” and revel in the success.

    Shane and Stephanie will own majority of the WWE…I doubt Vince is going to give ownership to anyone other then his children and grandchildren. He will always make the decisions though (Triple H) because Shane doesn’t care anymore.

  • Nobody


    I tend to like your thinking. Neither are a part of a conglomerate of wealthy people.

  • Really

    A bit too far yofits, plus Shane and HHH would then own the majority of WWE.

    Vince, Linda, H and Steph should fuck off and die and let Paul & Joey Styles run the WWE.

    Heyman should run WWE,

    What Heyman needs, is someone with the business savvy to finance and handle all business affairs, and let Paul himself control the booking end of the promotion. If he “ran” a promotion in that sense, I think it would be a hit.
