WWE's Paul Heyman talks Wrestlemania and his Philadelphia past
Imagine performing on the biggest stage of your life, with two of your best friends in life, at the place where you have spent most of your life.
Sounds like a very ideal situation to be in, right?
That is the situation of WWE’s Paul Heyman who in 11 days, will walk into Wrestlemania XXIX, by the side of whom he considers his two best friends in the world, Brock Lesnar and CM Punk.
"How could it be bad for me?" Heyman said during a phone interview Wednesday morning. "I have two of the three main events properly represented on the biggest Wrestlemania of all time in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. How could things be going anything but splendidly for me?"
A native of Scarsdale, N.Y., Heyman is currently managing Lesnar and Punk, two of the biggest names in WWE today, as they prepare for matches of massive proportions April 7 in MetLife Stadium.
Punk will go against The Undertaker in an attempt the break his famed perfect record at the biggest show of the year of 20-0.
Lesnar will face Triple H in a rematch of their tilt at Summerslam last August, but with the added caveat of a Triple H loss meaning the end of his career.
Who’s got it better than Heyman? According to him, no one.
"I’m ecstatic with my current role in WWE," Heyman said. "I get to work every Monday with my two best friends: Brock Lesnar and CM Punk. I have 'The Beast' [Lesnar] and 'The Best' [Punk]."
Punk is known to wrestling fans as the man who revolutionized the industry almost two years ago with his epic promo that set the internet on fire.
Heyman knows a thing or two about revolutions as his vision sparked one right here in Philadelphia in the mid-90s.
