Paul Heyman kept off TV while Brock Lesnar is absent

Having a WWE World Heavyweight Champion who is part-time was never going to be pleasing for fans, and with the news of the champ's manager also being kept off screen for that time too, WWE has a lot to answer for.

Brock Lesnar is called The Beast for a reason. His incomparable physique and constantly-angry attitude are intimidating enough for any WWE Superstar, and with the inclusion of Paul Heyman as his manager mean together they have achieved the biggest title in WWE.

Best manager 

Paul Heyman is comfortably the best manager in WWE at present. His character somehow manages to be consistent enough to have his own amount of TV-time to prove his significance, but he still maintains a back seat to enable his client to shine through.

It is for this reason that many WWE fans will be disappointed to learn that the industry is keeping Heyman off its shows for as long as Brock Lesnar is not making any scheduled appearances too.

Champ's absence

As reported by PWS, the apparent plan the company has is to keep Lesnar off of WWE until at least the lead up to the Royal Rumble in January.

In addition, Heyman too will be missing the three consecutive pay-per-view events in order to prevent any further attention and focus being drawn to Lesnar, who will not be regularly defending his title unlike many previous WWE World Heavyweight Champions.

This plan though, may well not be the ideal scenario. For much of the WWE Universe, Heyman's own unique personality and portrayal is so interesting to watch that any appearance from him whether it be regular or not, would surely be a good thing.

With the absence of another loud-mouthed manager in WWE through Vickie Guerrero, the company has been left with a large hole by leaving fans without a regular powerful, confident and intriguing wrestling-manager like Vickie or Heyman to watch.

What are your thoughts WWE fans? Should Heyman be kept out for as long as his client is?
