Paul Heyman's Twitter rant

Paul Heyman has an interesting Twitter account (@HeymanHustle) and went on a rant yesterday.  A PWTorch reader named Ronnie Allen put it in a PDF.

I saw TH of The Wrestling Blog (@tholzerman) mention it on Twitter.  I saw the PDF link over on WCMB.

Give it a look, it really is fascinating.  For example....
I'm working with these legends, these giants of the industry, these absolute top guys in my 20s ... In today's system, most super talented people spend a great portion of their 20's just trying to make it onto the main roster ... ... and yes, that has to change ...
Check the rest out here:

Also, I once mentioned on Twitter (@mckinneydg) that a young Paul Heyman looked a bit like Michael Keaton and he responded with, "I'm Batman!"  Too funny.


  1. The funny thing about that rant is it was in response to Joey Ryan on Impact failing his Gut Check and the subsequent bitter Twitter kvetching that Ryan did. The consensus is that it was all a work anyway, so he was basically ranting about a guy reacting as part of a storyline.

    Even funnier? Gabe Sapolsky started pimping the rant as part of his crusade against people Tweeting him to request he books certain wrestlers. Meanwhile, you could argue that a wrestler getting a Twitter campaign together to get booked somewhere is EXACTLY the kind of "taking the business by the balls" thing that Heyman was talking about.

    Wrestling is so funny sometimes.

  2. Yeah, I agree with you that Gabe's perspective is wrong in this case. Regardless the inspiration of Heyman's rant, it's good advice and I love the passion.

    Jim Cornette could take notes from Heyman in that he is fired up and passionate here and doesn't come across as an absolute toolbox.
