Paul Heyman Heaps Praise On AEW & NJPW Superstars

Paul Heyman

Paul Heyman might be the Special Counsel to The Tribal Chief but the advocate extraordinaire has heaped praise on some stars of AEW and New Japan Pro Wrestling.

Heyman has built a career on his eye for talent as he previously took discarded talent such as Mick Foley and Steve Austin and gave them a stage to shine in the form of ECW.

As a manager, Paul Heyman has surrounded himself with legends of the business over the last thirty years such as Arn Anderson, Rick Rude, Kurt Angle, Rob Van Dam, and of course, The Beast Incarnate Brock Lesnar.

These days the inimitable Heyman can be found by the side of WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns as he sits proudly at The Head Of The Table in WWE.

Now, however, the former WWE Executive Director has taken to social media to celebrate some stars outwith the confines of WWE – AEW’s Malakai Black and NJPW’s Buddy Matthews:

“Great talent will always find a way to showcase their abilities. I am, indeed, quite proud, and never let “promotional boundaries” limit that and those who inspire my admiration.”

Both men were previously part of the Raw brand during Heyman’s short tenure in charge of the brand. Then known as Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy the two men were heavily featured during Heyman’s stint controlling the red brand.
