I'm playing catch up a little, I've only just got through watching Raw.
That promo exchange between Punk and Heyman, followed by the pulsating physical encounter between the former and Brock Lesmar...I mean; wow. If you're a fan of professional wrestling, how fucking awesome was that whole segment? I mean, really. Absolutely incredible course of action.
I'm on record as saying Paul is, for me, the WWE's MVP for 2013. I can't remember an episode of WWE programming on which Heyman's featured a significant amount of time when I wasn't totally enthralled by his work. Now, obviously I'm a mental fan of his who bought into his ECW brand wholeheartedly - I know his history, and that might put me in the minority (a significant minority, I'd venture...but a minority nonetheless).
So, bearing in mind the storied and chequered history Paul has with Vince, with WWE and with the industry as a whole...how do you think history will recall Heyman's contribution to the organisation? Will it reflect him as being a master of his craft, a man who knows the art as well as any Dungeon trainer, and one of the best antagonists / managers (with or without the microphone) there has ever been?
Or will it be spun? Will it recollect his business failings and the lower points of his career?
As a secondary question; how impressed have you been with Paul Heyman over his latest run with WWE?
