Paul Heyman is one of the best talkers in the business and there’s no denying that. Heyman has been instrumental in taking the Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns feud to where it is today. Even John Cena admits that the storyline is the biggest WWE has had in years.
MJF is another talent that’s spectacular on the mic. The Pinnacle Leader has had a great three years with All Elite Wrestling, but that doesn’t mean he won’t listen to offers once his contract expires in 2024. Heyman sees no harm in MJF going public about his future plans. On the contrary, while speaking to MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani, Heyman said he sees things as a pretty smart move.
“For his perspective, no. In his position, no. Where he’s working right now, no. Where he wants to work in the future, no. It’s not bad business at all. For what he obviously views his trajectory to be, for what he obviously views his future to be, not bad business at all. Pretty smart, I would say. Pretty smart.”
The ECW mastermind has nothing but praise for MJF’s ability to sell a feud or storyline through words, a skill that propelled performers like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, John Cena, and CM Punk to super stardom in the world of sports and entertainment.
“Yeah, why wouldn’t I be? He’s very credible on the mic. Incredible is not a compliment. Incredible means he’s not credible. He’s credible. He’s very good at what he does. He’s very young and he has a big future ahead of him.”
Though the two have never crossed paths before, at least not to Heyman’s remembrance, the Wise Man is certain they’ll bump into each other at some point in future. MJF previously stated that he’d love to work with Heyman, given the opportunity.
“Aligning myself with him? We’re a long way…right now, he’s in a very enviable spot in an upstart promotion that has tremendous financing and excellent distribution. Let’s see what the future holds for him. I’m sure, at some point in his life, we’re going to bump into each other.”
Heyman will be accompanying WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns against WWE Champion Brock Lesnar in a winner-take-all title unification match this Sunday at WrestleMania 38. The year’s Mania emanates from the AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas. You can check out the full card right here.
