In news that shouldn’t surprised anyone, Paul Heyman has major heat backstage in WWE. I’m told the company has strong suspicions that he’s leaking information to a pro wrestling website in which employs a writer believed to be working with Heyman on HeymanHustle.com.
A lot of people view it as “Paul being Paul” so WWE isn’t looking to fire him over it as they do need him to keep Brock Lesnar relevant without burning through all of the dates on Lesnar’s contract. Remember, the most attractive thing about Heyman is his connection to Lesnar in which provides the company the opportunity to use him as Lesnar’s on-air mouthpiece. As a result of the suspicions, WWE has been kayfabing Heyman about any future plans until it’s “absolutely necessary” to tell him because they feel like he isn’t going to keep his mouth shut about anything. This is one of the reasons why a story made rounds that WWE had nothing to do with Brock’s meeting with UFC officials a couple weeks ago when we can confirm the contrary.
I’m told the whole thing is starting to drive an even further wedge between Brock and Heyman as Brock is a private person and doesn’t like Paul talking about his career to outsiders. While the feeling is almost anybody else would be fired for this, Vince McMahon thinks so little of Heyman and already expects this kind of stuff from him, that now they just need to kayfabe Heyman as much as possible. As a result, expect other bogus Lesnar/WWE stories to materialize so WWE can keep an eye on the leak but of course they will not appear on this website.
