Paul Heyman is the Wise Man, founder of ECW’s extreme branding, and a great mind in the pro wrestling business. That being said, he’s also no saint.

Brian Gewirtz gained recognition for his work as a writer in the WWE. Gewirtz became the lead writer of Raw during the 2000s and was responsible for many iconic storylines at the time.

Brian Gewirtz also worked closely with Paul Heyman, who was the lead writer for SmackDown. Geweirtz recently sat down with Riju Dasgupta for an interview, wherein he dismissed rumors he had a fistfight with the mastermind of extreme.

“That’s a very, very generous way of putting it. I think that’s an insult to fist fights! I don’t think fists were ever actually involved. I think perhaps some light swatting for a few seconds was the extent of it.”

The confrontation, as Gewirtz explained, had its roots in a controversial storyline a protégé of Paul Heyman pitched for Torrie Wilson. Gewirtz dismissed the idea that Wilson appear naked in front of camera.

Gewirtz left WWE to join Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s Seven Bucks Production. He is busy promoting his new book “There’s Just One Problem…: True Tales from the Former, One-Time, 7th Most Powerful Person in WWE” these days.
