Paul Heyman put the entertainment into sports entertainment after SmackDown as he tried to get into the crowd to fight members of the WWE Universe.
After SmackDown went off the air on Friday night, The Viking Raiders teamed up with former WWE Champion Drew McIntyre to take on the combined force of The Bloodline who were of course accompanied to the ring by Roman Reigns’ Special Counsel Paul Heyman.
During the bout, Heyman appeared to become embroiled in an altercation with a fan at ringside. Paul Heyman played up to the crowd in spectacular style as he dramatically took his suit jacket off and threw it on the commentary desk before charging towards the fan in question.
Thankfully for the fan – and perhaps Heyman – Jey Uso intervened pulling Heyman away from the confrontation as he hilariously threw wild air punches. Paul Heyman continued to playfully go back and forward with the fans, at one point trying to get over the ringside barricade to no avail.
In the end, it was the WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns who had to step in and offered Paul Heyman a comforting cuddle to calm his Special Counsel down as can be seen in this video of the shenanigans shared on social media.

During the same bout, a more heartwarming interaction took place as Jimmy Uso shared some words and a new t-shirt with WWE Warrior Award recipient Jarrius Robertson.
There won’t be many laughs or touching moments when The Bloodline head to Saudi Arabia for the Elimination Chamber. The Usos will defend their SmackDown Tag Team Championship at the event against The Viking Raiders while Roman Reigns and his Universal Title are what’s next for WWE Hall Of Famer, Goldberg.
