Paul Heyman is touted as one of the best managers, if not the best manager in WWE, and rightly so - Just look at his history. He can silence an audience like no manager ever before him and knows how to put a client across to the WWE Universe.
-Rob Van Dam won the WWE and ECW titles under his management - The first person to hold the two together, back in the days when the two were separate brands - Under Heyman's management.
-CM Punk - Held the WWE Title for 434 days, the longest of the modern era and became the self proclaimed "best in the world" under his management.
-Brock Lesnar - Broke the Undertaker's undefeated streak at Wrestlemania under his management.
-Cesaro - The biggest rising star in WWE right now and Andre the Giant Memorial Battle Royal winner - Under Paul Heyman's management.
He has one of the best records for success out of his clients, but every shining light has their dark spots and it seems Ryback and Curtis Axel were Heyman's blank spot.
The two now make up the doomed fraction of RyBaxel, but last year they played a major part in Paul Heyman's feud with CM Punk before being dropped by Heyman and now in an interview with The Miami Herald, Ryback has admitted that he took nothing from his time with Heyman:
"I got absolutely nothing [from that]. It’s a time period I will not even think to look back on."
Ryback looked to be one of the superstars who would rise to the top two years back with his "feed me more" slogan, he ripped through the WWE roster and took part in some great WWE matches, notably the three stages of Hell match with John Cena where he was put through the roof of an ambulance.
Since then he has dropped the "Feed me more" slogan and it seems WWE have run out of idea's for the big guy and his recent Twitter rants seem to have turned him into a laughing stock to all the talent backstage.
That being said, he and Curtis Axel put up a good fight for the tag team championships last week and now it looks like the two are set for a feud against each other that could be a defining moment in both of their careers and could see them find their way back onto the main event of the card.
