Paul Heyman on who had the more successful title run out of CM Punk or Brock Lesnar

‘The Beast Incarnate’ Brock Lesnar or ‘The Best in the World’ CM Punk, who has had the more successful run? That was the question posed to advocate Paul Heyman during WFAN radio’s Benigno & Roberts in New York. His answer was pretty emphatic:


When asked why…

“What was the stock when CM Punk was the champion? What’s the stock now?

I have news for everybody. I know this will come as a shock. I know this is the type of news… fans hate to hear. Ready? It’s a business. It’s a business. So the stock, when CM Punk was champion was, what? 19? 20? 21? The stock is now at 80! $80 per share.

Who was the main event of WrestleMania? Who is the main event of SummerSlam? Who’s the most featured performer? Who’s on all the billboards? Who’s on all the posters? Who right now has an advocate speaking for him on WFAN? Brock Lesnar. Stock’s at 80. Obviously something is being done that is correct.”

Heyman was also asked about Punk possibly returning to WWE and whether he still keeps in contact with his former client:

“I don’t text him at all. And… in this business I’ve learned never to presume that someone’s not coming back, but if anybody’s not coming back, he’s the exception that defines the rule.”

    Don’t have to show up to work if you’re not on the schedule.

  • Luke

    It’s almost like he’s in character or something, isn’t it?

  • Soulshroude

    The stock is 80 because of the product. Now that Lesnar’s out of the picture, it’s going to climb tremendously… it’s a “business…”

    No contest. Punk was a full time talent who worked his ass off, and defended the belt regularly. Including on episodes of Raw and PPVs where he WASN’T the main event, even though he was the damn Champion. Love him or not, Punk was a professional, who loves(d) the wrestling business. That is something you could never say about Lesnar. Brock is an overpaid, overrated tool.

  • Nicholas Giambattista

    Styles is miles ahead of both Brock and Punk. The Real Wrestling fan knows who is the real world champion.

    Why even bother asking Heyman anything about Lesnar? Heyman will always have his head shoved up Lesnar’s ass.. it’s really annoying.

    I know it is just Heyman being Heyman and hyping Lesnar, but you might as well put that $80 on Styles before you put it on the invisible champion.
