Pro Wrestling Since 1997


Paul Heyman addresses rumors

Heyman via Twitter:

“It is amazing how many rumors are flying around. I don’t like to address rumors. It lends credibility to them, and the moment you answer ONE rumor,you immediately call attention to the other rumors (no matter how ridiculous they are) by NOT responding!

We’re going to clear up some issues. Set the record straight. Get some people “on point,” and stir some things up!

Brock’s theory of “let them speculate” seems to be a damn smart one, and I certainly see the merits of that position.

HOWEVER (aha! There is a “but” involved here)… Just to address two items that so many people seem to be giving credence to.

@CMPunk and I have NOT pitched the idea of being aligned to anyone. If we did, you wouldn’t know about it. Did anyone know I was coming back on May 7th as Brock’s representative? NO ONE KNEW! So if @CMPunk and I have … or had .. or will have a plan … I assure you, it would have / will play out in front of your very eyes. @CMPunk doesn’t need an advocate. Nor a spokesman. Nor a representative. That’s not his character. Brock’s character totally different.

The other rumor to address … Whether @WWE is interested in extending my deal, Brock’s deal, etc. Not one single person has hit the nail on Brock’s deal with @WWE … and that’s the way Brock likes it! … and since NO ONE knows what my deal is, it would be impossible for anyone to state with certainty what my situation IS … or ISN’T! And, just for the record, I’m not discussing it.

Here’s my reasoning for it … When I left @WWE in 2006, I thought I was done. Gone. Never to return. I loved working with Brock on his book. Building #Looking4Larry with @MStuart777 has been a total blast! The @HeymanHustle website and digital program has been the cornerstone of our agency, and we love doing it.

This whole deal has been a surprise. A surprise for you. A surprise for my kids. A surprise for the WWE Universe. A surprise for ME, too. Enjoy the ride. Watch it unfold. See what happens. For the first time in forever, we have people GUESSING what comes next. If for no other reason but THAT, there’s nothing 2 discuss. You know there’s a heavily-promoted match this Sunday at @WWE #SummerSlam.

You’ve seen @ShawnMichaels, Stephanie McMahon, all our CHILDREN be a part of this main event. Now it comes down to Brock Lesnar vs HHH. If we’ve sold you on buying the ppv, I bet you get your money’s worth on this match alone. If we haven’t sold you on the ppv yet, then thank you for your time, and I hope something else has captured your attention or imagination.

Brock and I are “all-in” for this Sunday. And just based on what his future holds, HHH is “all-in,” too. This is a match everyone wants you to remember.

So … I’m not addressing any more rumors. I’m not confirming. I’m not denying. I’m focused on this Sunday … … and I’m looking forward to watching Brock and HHH live up to, and indeed EXCEED everyone’s expectations.

Is this hype? Yes. But it’s Hype routed in TRUTH. Is this a rant? A diatribe? A long-winded TwitSpeech? Absolutely! Hope you liked it.”

  5. Hipnosis says:

    Paul Heyman hasn’t sold me on anything and neither has Brock or HHH. However TNA has sold me on Bound for Glory. There’s going to be another ROCK vs CENA and i’m tired of it. Rock vs Cena has been the focus for 2 years already. I forgot MIZ main evented Wrestlemania because it was about ROCK vs CENA

  6. Tony says:

    It’s good to see you back Mr. Heyman, pro-wrestling needs you badly. I hope you do stay on, the younger talent(in ring and behind the magic curtain) needs a MENTOR like you to educate them on the art of pro-wrestling (sports entertainment) showmanship. As a lifetime watcher of wrestling (30+ years)I can say that you have help make 2012 a very entertainiung year thus far!

    Honestly i haven’t been sold on SummerSlam what so ever and i wont be ordering this event the first time i have never ordered SummerSlam because it used to be a great PPV in fact my favourite even of the year.

    However i cannot stand Heyman, Lesnar or HHH. All part timers, all lacking talent and all over which are over rated and BORING. And that pretty much sums up the WWE nowadays.

    People chime on about Heyman as if he is a genius really? he ran his own wrestling promotion into the ground, didn’t pay talent, destroyed wrestling’s credibility when he focussed on branding it as “Hardcore” which imo is complete and utter trash. And when i see people writing about the art of pro wrestling and Heyman mentioned in the same sentence that is out right ridiculous.

    SummerSlam will suck the main events are poor and the pwople working them are boring.

  10. rob says:

    You’ve got me interested, Paul. I wasn’t even considering ordering a PPV until I read your speech here on Gerweck. Now, I might actually get the PPV … or at least continue considering it.

    Also, why is Hipnosis sold on Bound For Glory? What’s the story their? I get that they’re doing a Field of Honor-esque Bound For Glory series, but I watched ten minutes of iMPACT! last night and I don’t get why Bobby Roode is playing such a pathetic character trying to get heel heat so hard when they could easily have someone like Aries come out and get a pop to hold my attention. Who’s Aries going to fight at Bound For Glory? He’s the only wrestler on that roster that can hold my interest at the moment.

    Now back to Brock and HHH … remember when Brock beat Rock at SummerSlam and took the title to Smackdown? And Trips was presented with the World Heavyweight Championship belt? Well, I’ve been waiting to see this match since then and you know what, Paul Heyman is done a good job of selling this SummerSlam card to me exactly ten years after Brock won the belt.

    If you remember correctly, Shawn Michaels made a come back at the PPV and had a great match with Triple H that saw those two feuding into the fall while Brock and Heyman rocked Smackdown!

    The Master…love him or hate him, he’s one of the most talented guys ever is this biz. He’s a good talker, plays the old school manager part very well in a “new school” way. No one else can come close. He succeeds as the mouthpiece for a guy that is physically impressive yet is mediocre on the stick. I’m glad Paul is back. Brock needs to grow on me a bit again but he hasn’t exactly disappointed me yet either. And for the record Vince McMahon and Eric Bischoff strategically ran ECW to the ground, not Paul. They used their influence to raid the roster, keep Paul from getting TV deals and from using well known venues in towns so that ECW couldn’t progress and gain revenue. The only thing Paul is guilty of was possibly not informing the talent of the impending demise of the company. But I wouldn’t want to have to tell my closest friends that I couldn’t pay them either…either way, I’m glad he’s back.
