Paul Heyman recently spoke to Fighting Spirit Magazine. Here are some highlights.

His Current WWE Run: “I’m having an absolute blast, it’s the best of all circumstances. … Because I’m working with people I absolutely adore working with. I originally came back to work with Brock Lesnar and I couldn’t think of a better scenario to come back to WWE (than) with Brock. Then, after Summerslam when Brock went away, I was going away, too, and then came the opportunity to work with C.M. Punk.”

The Differences Between Lesnar & Punk: “With Brock, I did all the talking and I advocated the position and then he backed it up in the ring. With Punk, it would not make any sense for me to do all the talking. I should do very little talking. ‘Ladies and gentleman, my name is Paul Heyman and I’m here to represent the WWE champion C.M. Punk,’ and then boom. That’s all I should really every say. So, it’s a Meyer Lansky-type of position more so than the guy that [is] up front completely delivering the message for — by way of example — Brock Lesnar.”

    Paring Punk with Heyman is probably one of the smartest things WWE has done in a long time, now if only they would put him on creative and maybe even give him Raws GM ( role especially now AJ has “resigned”). I mean Vickie Guerrero’s a good heel manager for Ziggler sure, but as GM? (again) not so much.
