In the latest issue of the WWE Magazine, Paul Heyman talked about why he believes Vince McMahon has kept him around despite their tumultuous relationship.
“I would suggest that Mr. McMahon is, at the core, a businessman, through and through,” Heyman said. “And my assessment of his feelings toward me is simply this: That The Chairman holds me in less contempt than he does others who can’t generate the kind of revenue that Paul Heyman can deliver.”
Heyman was the manager in two of three WrestleMania 29 Main Events. Heyman said he never envisioned this occurring one year ago.
“If you had asked Mr. McMahon a year ago if Paul Heyman would be associated with WrestleMania 29, he wouldn’t have said, ‘I don’t even want him watching WrestleMania. If he buys the pay-per-view, send him his money back and block his cable!’ Heyman said. “Brock Lesnar was never supposed to come back. And no one wanted C.M. Punk from the moment he arrived here.”
