Paul Heyman has an eye for talent, and he’s not pinpointed a shock Friday Night SmackDown roster member as a “star” for the future.

Madcap Moss was brought to WWE’s main roster in early 2020 while Paul Heyman was the Executive Director for Monday Night Raw, and there was seemingly a reason for that.

Heyman seems to be a big fan of Madcap Moss (formerly Riddick Moss), noting on WWE After The Bell that he thinks the former NXT wrestler is going to be a future “star”:

Riddick Moss is going to be a star. I don’t think anyone has a clue with just how capable he is. He’s demonstrated that he can walk into any personality that he is assigned at the moment.

Heyman even suggested that, just like Roman Reigns, a character shift for Madcap Moss could take him to the next level:

When Riddick Moss has the emergence out of his shell and into his next incarnation, the same way The Big Dog elevated his game and evolved into the Tribal Chief, Riddick Moss’ next iteration in WWE, there will be no stopping him. He’s a main eventer.”

As for other WWE Superstars that Heyman thinks have a lot of potential, the mind behind ECW cited the likes of Charlotte Flair and Riddle, saying the following about the latter:

“I don’t think we’ve scratched the surface with the physical abilities of Matt Riddle. He gets better every match that I see him in. After his initiation with the audience demonstrates just how capable he is

Paul Heyman reunited with Roman Reigns at the Royal Rumble last month, with the pair costing Brock Lesnar the WWE Championship in his match with Bobby Lashley.

Heyman and Reigns are slated to appear together in their first segment since reuniting on tonight’s episode of Friday Night SmackDown (February 4).
