Tweet: Paul Heyman makes fun of his own promo from Monday Night Raw

Paul Heyman is commonly regarded as one of the greatest talkers in the history of professional wrestling/sports entertainment.

Although Brock Lesnar is quite the specimen on his own - a former NCAA Division one heavyweight champion, UFC heavyweight champion and WWE undisputed champion, as Heyman frequently reminds us - there is no doubt that Heyman has helped him reach the superstar level that he currently resides at.

The WWE has relied on Heyman to sell nearly all of Lesnar's bouts since the Beast Incarnate set foot in the WWE back in 2002, and the same rules apply for Lesnar's upcoming bout with Goldberg at Survivor Series in November, a rematch that is 12 years in the making.

However, things did not quite go according to plan on Monday night when Heyman and Lesnar addressed the Beast's hometown crowd in Minnesota.

Heyman suggested that the fans chanting for Goldberg were annoying Lesnar, but the crowd in attendance actually favoured their local hero and began chanting "Goldberg sucks," taking the segment in a totally different direction.

The promo abruptly finished and it has to be viewed as a gross miscalculation from Vince McMahon and co. Lesnar is one of those cool bad guys that was always going to garner a favourable response in his hometown, regardless of the nostalgia pop that Goldberg enjoyed the week prior.

It seems as though Heyman is man enough to know when he has underperformed, though.

In the above tweet, the former ECW mastermind openly admitted he had put in a sub-par performance on Monday after ESPN had posted an article only one day before proclaiming him to define the art of the wrestling promo.

In truth, it was a meteoric waste of a Lesnar appearance and fans are growing tired of watching him stand idly by while Heyman talks about what he can do. To think that Lesnar got paid extremely well for what he did is even more confusing.

How can the WWE recover from this missed opportunity on Monday night? Let us know in the comments below.
