During a recent PWTorchVIP.com audio show, Wade Keller talked about Vince McMahon's retirement announcement and what it means for WWE to move forward without him, while also focusing on one person in particular: Paul Heyman.
"He ran ECW, he revolutionized the wrestling industry. Without him there is no Attitude Era, I don't think. And then he worked with WWE and clashed with Stephanie McMahon. As I've said for the past few months, it seems.
that according to people who have seen them, Paul Heyman and Stephanie get along well. You know, honestly, there is a chemistry and a dynamic between them that is very positive. And it's very different from what you know about 15-20 years ago.
So, Heyman is someone to watch. He's very, very smart. And he's a wrestling guy," he said. What's the latest on Paul Heyman? Not much is known about the relationship between Paul Heyman and Nick Khan. Keller went on to say, "I've often wondered if he and Nick Khan have gotten close.
I don't know how Nick Khan would feel ready to deal with Paul Heyman given what he may have heard about Paul Heyman over the decades, but Paul is not the same person he was 15-20 years ago. People say that the fact that he has kids has really changed him and that he's grown up and mature, and now he's the type to scoff at people who are like him.
He scoffs at people who are like him at the age they are now, more than being like them if it makes sense. So you know, Paul is someone to watch. He is so smart and he is so connected to big names like Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey and Roman Reigns.
So, depending on how things go, Triple H and Stephanie could be dependent on Paul, and he could be in their inner circle. And that would be a pretty powerful trio of people who could take WWE into the next era on the wrestling side, Nick on the business side, and then Stephanie, Paul and Paul ...
So that's something to keep an eye on." Paul Heyman has an interesting opinion on Roman Reigns possibly facing The Rock. “We can speculate all we want about Dwayne The Rock Johnson stepping into the ring with Roman Reigns,” Heyman said.
“It’s masturbatory fantasies until there’s a piece of paper in front of us with Dwayne Johnson’s signature on it. Then I know it’s real. And until then it’s just fantasy. It’s a fantasy of Dwayne Johnson’s to come and get the rub from The Tribal Chief Roman Reigns”.
