Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns and his Special Counsel Paul Heyman appeared on ESPN’s First Take to promote SummerSlam 2023.
During the conversation, Stephen A Smith brought up the topic of the greatest pro-wrestling managers of all time.
Heyman responded by calling himself the undisputed greatest of all time.
Smith then brought up the name of late legendary manager Bobby “The Brain” Heenan, to which Heyman replied:
“I’m the GOAT. Screw him. He’s dead.”
Heyman then expressed his disappointment about Jimmy Hart being alive, who was another legendary wrestling manager back in the day.
“Jimmy Hart is still alive, which proves God doesn’t answer my prayers.”
Heyman then said he’s the GOAT because he’s managing Roman Reigns, and The Tribal Chief wouldn’t settle for anything less than the GOAT.
“I’m with him. Why would he settle for anything less than the GOAT? He’s the Tribal Chief. He’s the biggest box office attraction in the history of not only sports and entertainment but of sports entertainment.
He has smashed every box office record that WWE has ever had, not just domestically, but all over the world on a global basis and he’s done it in Saudi Arabia, he’s done it in UK, he’s done it in Mexico, he’s done it in Canada, he’s done it here in the United States, he continues to do it on SmackDown every Friday night, topping the previous Friday night.
Why would he settle for anything less than the absolute best?”
