Paul Heyman was one of best known and established names in the world of professional wrestling for decades. His mind for the industry is really great, like Heyman really understands the business. He’s been through a lot in his career and he even tried to fight former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz during a robbery.
Nobody can deny the fact that Paul Heyman is one of the best speakers on the microphone. The bloodline sage also founded ECW, and his love for the company is second to none as well. Naturally, he’s no stranger to going a bit to the extreme.
As written in his book “There’s Only One Problem…: True Tales from the Former, One-Time, 7th Most Powerful Person in WWE”, former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz detailed how Paul Heyman attempted to fight him during a robbery. at the beginning of the 2000’s.
“Once on the business jet Paul [Heyman] got so big [over what, I don’t remember] that he got up and challenged me to a fight, mid-flight. To be fair, I’m sure I said something that made him want to punch me in the face. Anyway, Paul stands up, looks me in the eyes and says, “I’ll give you three free punches in the face if I can only get one.” Before I could respond to that offer, Shane McMahon jumped up from his seat. That wasn’t to say having a fight in a small plane was a bad idea. Instead, he took me to the airplane lavatory to show me how to properly throw a punch.
I ultimately turned down the opportunity to have a good old fashioned plane fight, disappointing most on board, including Vince, who seemed far more interested in this potential match than the Tajiri vs. Albert match a few hours later. early.
Heyman was even kicked out of a locker room twice. He’s currently happy in his role as special adviser to Roman Reigns, and that’s all that matters to him right now. Only time will tell where his career will lead from now on, but he’ll likely rack up plenty of new stories in the years to come.
