• Paul Heyman On How Young Wrestlers Can Succeed In WWE
Paul Heyman was interviewed by BT Sport, where he talked about the current generation of up and coming WWE Superstars and how they are very different to the Superstars of the good old days.
Here’s what Heyman said:
“If I was a young guy in this industry, I wouldn’t even wait for the entry-level positions, I’d be pitching for the top. Put me in there and you know what, don’t fill the 7th match on the card with someone with tenure, put a new guy in there, put me in there and see if I sink or swim.
If I sink, I’ll just be another guy out the door and this one that doesn’t have any emotional connection with the audience that the other guy who just left or you had fired has had for years. I’ll be a new guy that’s shown the door, who cares about the new guy. But if I hit? If I score? If I connect? If I interact? If I draw money? If I sell t-shirts? If I’m box office?”
Heyman originally made a name for himself as WCW manager and ECW promoter Paul E. Dangerously, before he joined the World Wrestling Federation in early 2001.
