Meet the next Paul Heyman guy

Published 2 Comments

That group of people referred to as 'Paul Heyman Guys' could be viewed as a who's who of sports entertainment.

Dating all the way back to the days of ECW people like Rob Van Dam could be considered Paul Heyman guys.

In recent years in the WWE, stars such as Brock Lesnar, CM Punk and Cesaro have all been under the tutelage of the one behind the one in 21-1.

His most famous 'guy' in my opinion, Brock Lesnar is challenging John Cena for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship in two weeks at Summer Slam.

It seems almost inevitable that win or lose, Lesnar will be off our screens shortly after the event and that means there will be an opening for the next Paul Heyman guy.

So heres the question, who should it be?

Well his alliance with Cesaro was cut relatively short due to the return of Lesnar and they're clearly still on good turns as seen after Cesaro defended Heyman against Cena a few weeks ago on RAW.

So who should be the next Paul Heyman guy? In my opinion, Kane.

A legend's demise

So why does Kane need to team up with Heyman?

Well during his time with the Authority, Kane became Corporate Kane then reverted back to being the Devil's favourite demon.

When he first went behind the mask again it was like having old school, Attitude era Kane back during his feud with Daniel Bryan.

He would arrive, beat people up then leave, or he would send cryptic messages and pop up in random places - like the week he terrorised Brie Bella and Bryan and ended up in their car.

But recently, he has been on a losing streak, has been the Authority's attack dog and has done what he has been told to do.

So how can the WWE help bring Kane back?

Enter Paul Heyman

During Brock Lesnar's entire WWE career, Heyman has pretty much spoken for him, ignoring the time he told Heyman to shut up prior to Survivor Series 2002.

Heyman is great at talking for a superstar as was seen when Lesnar returned to RAW a few weeks ago, just like a former manager of Kane's.

The late, great Paul Bearer was Kane's first manager, back when he donned the bright red suit and the intimidating mask where only his neck was on show.

I think is the Kane we need in today's WWE.

Since the Undertaker's lack of weekly appearances and subsequent loss at Wrestlemania XXX, the WWE has been without a supernatural and dominating entity.

Bray Wyatt brings the creepy to the ring but is still nothing to what the Undertaker brought, or what attitude era Kane brought with him.

Personally I think removing Kane from the Authority, keeping him out for a bit of time and giving him a great new comeback as a muted superstar with a manager who speaks for him is a way to bring the big red monster back to the WWE.
