Paul Heyman has done a lot in the wrestling business. He’s worked for all the top promotions and now serves as the advocate for Brock Lesnar. When it pertains to cutting promos, Heyman has an idea where he’s headed but doesn’t get fed lines by creative like most of the roster.

“I have a beginning, a middle and and end,” said Heyman on the SI Media Podcast. “I have a turning point sometimes. I’ll let them know where I’m going right off the bat. All I’ll let them know is my turning point. I’ll let them know my final line, so they know when to hit Brock’s music.”

He continued that the writing team use to have lines for him, but they know better.

“If you’re looking for me to go 1-2-3-4-5, you’re not letting me to feel the live crowd, and you’re asking me to be pigeonhole myself into memorizing a script, and it will not work,” said Heyman. “I like to interact with the audience.”
