It’s no secret that Paul Heyman has been known to go extreme during his time in the professional wrestling industry. That’s why it was no secret that in a new interview with the Sports Media Podcast, Heyman revealed that when his other former client, CM Punk took revenge on him during the 2013 Hell in a Cell pay-per-view event, that was too. so real. as it could possibly be. Paul Heyman “buried” this WWE diva after text messages were leaked.
During the same interview, Heyman also discussed when Samoa Joe put him on the Coquina Clutch on the June 5, 2017 edition of Monday Night Raw. Here, Heyman would reveal that it was his instruction for “The Samoa Submission Machine” to legitimately strangle him. It was then that Joe was the number one contender for the WWE Universal Championship, which was in the hands of Heyman’s client at the time, Brock Lesnar. Credit to Ringside News for the following quote.
“My preparation for physicality is the emotional understanding that this is going to hurt. The beating I took on CM Punk’s Hell in a Cell was as real as any beating he took inside the Octagon in the UFC. Samoa Joe locking me in the Coquina Clutch on Monday Night Raw was as real as anything anyone else could feel in mixed martial arts because I don’t trust my timing and I have no athletic ability. So I prefer, if I’m going to be subject to physicality, bring it in. “
“I’ve also had the mindset that if you put Paul Heyman in a physical situation, the appeal is that the audience will say, ‘Okay, this is going to be visceral. This is going to be a fight. This will be interesting “. Because I’ve seen other people in this role or similar roles in the past, who didn’t want to take the hit. I think the lure, the seduction of Paul Heyman finally kicked is that Paul Heyman gets his butt kicked. You sit down and say, as a member of the audience, ‘Hey, I want to see this. That’s why the ratings for the Paul Heyman vs. Adam Pearce fight on SmackDown were so good. “
