Paul Heyman is one of the most respected veterans in the entire wrestling business. Paul E. has done everything from booking to managing to creative to running the entire company. Most wrestlers and fans know not to mess with Heyman on social media unless they want to be verbally destroyed.
Heyman has hounded Kayla Braxton endlessly via Twitter and Instagram. The advocate for WWE Champion Brock Lesnar has no problem letting his slick tongue eviscerate anyone he deems necessary. The latest victim is Johnny Knoxville.
Paul posted a throwback photo with Steve Austin as the NWA World Television Champion. Knoxville slid into the comments to call Heyman a chicken.
Knoxville wrote: “Throw Up Thursday! You were a big chicken then and you are a big chicken today @paulheyman!!” Little did the Jackass star expect that Heyman would reply and jaws across the world dropped.
“With all due DISrespect, sir, you didn’t address my retort to your uninvited intrusion onto my IG account. You simply continued to spew your barely comprehensible, poorly written dialogue which illustrates why @steveo, @chrispontius and @bam__margera were all far more popular than you, despite the fact you presented yourself as the star of your own project, which was little more than a bunch of failed stunt men doing their best impression(s) of @tomgreen!”
Johnny Knoxville is an entrant in this year’s WWE Royal Rumble match. Knoxville seems like he was trying to play pro wrestling heel a little bit with Paul. Little did he know that Heyman is the absolute master of that art form.
Sammy Zayn has also been having problems with the Jackass star. Knoxville’s attempts to troll Zayn online have been much more successful. Johnny will probably stick to that and leave Paul Heyman alone for a while.
