Paul Heyman says he is “so proud” of WWE ahead of return to live events. This week’s episode of SmackDown will be the first in over a year to feature a live audience.
WWE is all set to return to performing in front of a live crowd this week with SmackDown in front of fans in Houston, Texas.. This will be their first weekly show with an audience in attendance since the March 9, 2020 episode of WWE RAW.
Speaking on Houston radio station Sports Talk 790, Paul Heyman expressed his pride in WWE for continuing to produce weekly shows throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. He also revealed that he is “salivating” at the prospect of appearing in WWE arenas with fans again.
Paul Heyman says he is “so proud” of WWE ahead of return to live events
“I would be remiss if I didn’t stand on a soapbox and proclaim from the top of the mountain top how proud I am to be part of WWE because we never missed a week of programming. Not one. The entire world just went through a zombie apocalypse. We never missed one week of TV, and I am profoundly, infinitely proud of that fact.”
“I would also be a liar if I didn’t say to you, man, I miss the live crowd. I so miss standing in front of a live arena and feeling that live feedback from that audience, and I am salivating at the chance to do so this Friday.”

Paul Heyman was out of the WWE television for a while after Lesnar left the promotion. He eventually returned to their weeklyprogramming as Roman Reigns’ special counsel. The two have since struck an entertaining partnership that doesn’t look like it’ll end anytime soon.
