For many fans, Paul Heyman is one of the most well-known and established names in the pro wrestling industry. His mind for the industry is second to none, as Heyman is considered a true genius. Even Drew McIntyre wants Paul Heyman’s services.
Drew McIntyre has always been at odds when it comes to Paul Heyman, as he is usually on the opposite side. Such is the case right now, as he is feuding with Roman Reigns.
While speaking to Josh Martinez of Z100 on his Superstar Crossover podcast, Drew McIntyre talked about possibly working with Paul Heyman in the future. McIntyre made it clear he wants to be a Paul Heyman guy.
If you say ‘anybody,’ right away, Bobby Heenan is someone who comes to mind. But at the same time, you know, I’ve been around Paul Heyman when he’s been managing some of my opponents like a Brock Lesnar and a Roman Reigns, and I saw what he’s been able to do for them. He is someone that has advised me throughout the years, especially when I was younger and he’s a very, very smart individual.
There’s a reason he’s been around for so long, even though he’s been able to cause a bit of heat throughout his career. He’s not shy to speak his mind, and most of the time it’s because he’s right, and some people don’t like that. He’s kept himself within the industry because he is that good. So I may have to go with Paul Heyman and there may be something interesting down the line, you’re talking about a bad Drew and a Paul Heyman. Again, we’re just playing fantasy booker here, that could be interesting.”
The Scottish Warrior is set to team with RK-Bro and square off against The Bloodline at WrestleMania Backlash this week. We’ll have to see who will win the match in the end.
