Paul Heyman was one of the main architects of Extreme Championship Wrestling's success during the 1990s, but he is also remembered for his vital contribution to WWE. Between 2019 and 2020, he held the role of executive director backstage on Raw.
After splitting from Brock Lesnar due to his temporary estrangement, Paul is back on the August 28, 2020 episode of SmackDown as the new manager of Roman Reigns. Thanks to Heyman’s support, the 'Tribal Chief' had perhaps the best year of his entire career, having won the Universal title and been undefeated for over 400 days.
The former Shield member will meet Brock Lesnar at Crown Jewel on Thursday 21 October, in what looms as Card. During an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda, Heyman revealed the superstars who impressed him the most with their microphone skills.
Paul Heyman praises several superstars
“There are so many guys who have amazed me with their microphone skills lately. Becky Lynch, Seth Rollins, Stephanie McMahon and especially Pat McAfee come to mind. The latter really left me speechless.
I have become a huge fan of his” - said Paul Heyman. “I have to admit that the Street Profits have also made remarkable progress, in fact, they are among the most loved couples in the WWE Universe. They are simply outstanding.
I want to mention Bianca Belair, who improves day by day both in the ring and in interactions with fans” - he added. Paul Heyman then spent beautiful words for Kayla Braxton: “We are talking about a wonderful girl to whom I wish all the success in the world.
She has an out of the ordinary intelligence, so much so that she has very refined tastes when it comes to men" Kayla signed her first deal with WWE in 2016 and has carved out a good role within the company. Braxton is currently a backstage interviewer on SmackDown, where she has had numerous interactions with Heyman.
Paul Heyman dropped a big hint regarding Naomi's off-screen addition to Roman Reigns' Bloodline during an exclusive interview with Sportskeeda Wrestling's Rick Ucchino. "How do you know she's not already at the table? Because it's not on television? Does everything happen on television? We're on television two hours a week and tomorrow, by the way, two and a half hours on FS1.
That leaves a lot of time for the rest of the week when there are machinations and maneuvers and negotiations and strategies and things happening that you don't see on television. How do you know she is not at the table already? Ahh! Ahh! Exactly!" Heyman revealed.
