Paul Heyman is back in WWE…but to what extent?

Everyone that doesn’t live in North Carolina was pretty excited to see Paul Heyman come back to WWE on Monday. Hold your horses, though. Many fans love Heyman as an on-screen managerial-mouthpiece, but a lot of fans respect him for his ‘creative’ side behind the scenes. I hate to break it to you all, but Heyman is back ONLY as an on-screen persona. He is not involved with creative decisions or writing. I’m hoping that will change, but for now, it doesn’t seem to be the case.

Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar?

Brock Lesnar signed for a limited quantity of dates across 2012-2013, so Heyman was finally decided to be a good option as someone they can use to continue Lesnar’s storylines on dates where Lesnar isn’t booked. It’s genius, really. You pay $5 million to Lesnar for limited dates, but in a way, you still get him to be ‘represented’ on every single show, via Paul Heyman.

Paul Heyman and CM Punk?

While CM Punk is a ‘Paul Heyman Guy,’ it appears Paul Heyman is a ‘CM Punk Guy,’ according to PWinsider: “While one of the reasons Heyman has returned is to work with close friend Lesnar, word is that he also returned to potentially work with CM Punk down the line. Heyman has much respect for Punk and will work with him on the upcoming Punk DVD release.” Cheap plug: order saidDVD or Blu-Ray and help me out, eh?

Given that the working relationship is strong, MAYBE we’ll see him write again, but unless he is given free-range, don’t hold your breath. I’m content with him being an on-screen figure since he can talk his ass off. As long as they don’t try to revive ECW again, we’re fine and [El] dandy.

What’s your favorite Paul Heyman memory?
