Jim Ross on Paul Heyman: “He’s the best manager maybe ever”

Paul Heyman is one of the most experience wrestling personality. He has tonnes of knowledge in pro wrestling. He’s one of the best promoter of a match. Some wrestlers dream to be a Paul Heyman guy.

Jim Ross recently on his Grilling JR podcast talked about Paul Heyman. Jim Ross also talked commented on his friendship with Paul Heyman.

“We never rose to violence, but there were a lot of heart-to-heart talks after the show because he couldn’t stand that and I didn’t like doing it, but sometimes you’ve just got to put your foot down and say, ‘No, we can’t go there. Here’s where you should have cut that off, and I gave you a segway to something else, another topic, and you ignored it.

“So one thing is perhaps you’re not listening,’ which sounds very egocentric for me to say. ‘You’re not listening to me, and I’m JR. What the hell? Who do you think you are, buddy?’”

“He’s the best manager maybe ever,” Ross said. “I can see him being compared to [Jim] Cornette. I can see Paul being compared to Bobby Heenan because of his mind, his instincts. His feel for the game is still prevalent in a major way. So he’s just absolutely brilliant. I love the fact that we got to work together, and I love the fact we maintained our friendship because it wasn’t always easy.”(H/T: WrestlingInc)
