Ladies and Gentlemen, my name is Jordan Campbell and I’m here to advocate for the one behind the one in 21-1 and that is Paul Heyman.
Whenever Heyman has a microphone in hand, if only for a mere moment, I forget that I am watching a predetermined event. After all, that is the goal of anyone that works the microphone in the WWE.
The latest case of Heyman’s ingenious ways came on Monday.
Heyman was not featured on Monday Night Raw until the last segment of the night. Though, don’t be mistaken, that segment was the greatest segment of the night.
Triple H came down to the ring in anticipation of naming John Cena’s opponent for SummerSlam. Triple H announced that Randy Orton would be Cena’s opponent and as Orton was making his way to ring, Roman Reigns unleashed an attack on the third-generation superstar.
The attack left Triple H without a selection.
That would be when Heyman made his way to the top the stage and gave his notorious introduction for Brock Lesnar. Lesnar and Heyman then greeted Triple H in the ring and the sides agreed that Lesnar would be the one to face Cena at SummerSlam for the WWE World Heavyweight Title.
What happened next was great.
Heyman cut a promo on how Lesnar was the perfect option to put an end to Cena at SummerSlam. After the promo, Lesnar and Heyman were cheered as if they were saviors.
The same Lesnar and Heyman that were booed vehemently after Wrestlemania where Lesnar defeated The Undertaker.
Many “intelligent” wrestling fans were upset on Monday after hearing the cheers for Lesnar and Heyman. The intelligent fans know that we are supposed to hate Lesnar for what he did Undertaker and that is why he should have been booed on Monday.
But, in what has become common practice, fans cheered on Monday after Heyman’s promo.
There is no need to be upset with the fan’s reaction on Monday.
The fact of the matter is Heyman is gold when he has a microphone in his hand. That is why his work on Monday should be admired as with most of his promos.
