Update on Paul Heyman
May 15, 2011 - by Steve Gerweck
The former ECW mastermind, Paul Heyman, was tasked by Spike TV to help guide Shane Carwin sell his UFC 131 fight against Junior Dos Santos with less than a month to go for the Countdown show that Spike is now filming. Heyman, one of the best when it comes to talking and creativity in the business, is mentoring Lesnar’s former opponent after his close friend Brock Lesnar had to pull out of the fight against Dos Santos because of his illness. According to Wrestling Observer, Spike asked Heyman for his help and Heyman quickly accepted the deal. Spike and UFC were already filming the Countdown show with Lesnar when he had to pull out and Heyman was on Lesnar’s team during production.
