Paul Heyman lavishes WWE star with high praise on WWE star on the latest episode of WWE “Talking Smack” on the WWE Network.
Paul Heyman has always had an eye for talent. He famously traded Chris Jericho to RAW for Chris Benoit and Eddie Guerrero in the early 2000’s. Jericho was already a household name while the other two were barely relevant midcarders that Heyman saw value in.
By the time Heyman’s tenure with SmackDown ended, Guerrero and Benoit were main event level stars. He is also always looking to build to the future as was evident in the manner he handled Edge and Rey Mysterio when they were still looking for their footing in the WWE.
More recently, he endorsed pushing new stars in favor of creating new stars during his leadership of RAW. Many young wrestlers flourished and succeeded under his regime and while Heyman may not be head of creative of anymore, he still has his eyes on the future.
Paul Heyman lavishes WWE star Bianca Belair with high praise
Paul Heyman declared SmackDown Superstar Bianca Belair as the future of the WWE division.
“I would be remiss if I don’t also let Bianca know, and I think she knows this quite well, You’re the future of the women’s division and that’s a word that is thrown around here a lot, but you are. You are an athlete with amazing credentials,” he said. “You bring those credentials and that credibility to WWE. What you do is truly worthy of the tagline ‘the EST of WWE.’ I am in awe of the magnitude of your talent. You know, my feelings about The Street Profits. Those same feelings of admiration are bestowed upon you as well and I think that you know that.”
Heyman joins Charlotte Flair and Kurt Angle among many others who have heaped praises on Bianca Belair. It seems Heyman’s sentiments are echoed by the WWE as well. The EST of WWE was the last person from SmackDown to be eliminated in the match.
While Lana may have been the sole survivor, the match was clearly designed to highlight Belair.
