Paul Heyman on not getting Brock Lesnar’s hometown to turn on him: “I’ll take the blame for it”



Paul Heyman spoke with Brian Fritz of Sporting News to promote the upcoming WWE Survivor Series PPV event. During the interview, Heyman was asked about his favorite thing about the build up to the match between Brock Lesnar and Goldberg at the event. “The thing I enjoy most is the anticipation of the look on people's faces this Sunday when Brock Lesnar absolutely obliterates Goldberg, giving Goldberg no offense, squashing Bill Goldberg in two or three minutes right in the center of the ring,” Heyman said. He added that Lesnar would hit an F-5 to Goldberg and call it a night. He said that seeing the people’s faces scream for Goldberg brings him nothing but sadistic joy.

A few weeks ago on RAW in Minneapolis, Heyman was in the ring with Lesnar and was supposed to do a promo. However, things did not go according to plan as Vince McMahon cut the segment short after the fans kept chanting that Goldberg sucks. When asked about the promo, Heyman said he would not have accepted the booking for Minneapolis nor would he have let Lesnar appear on that episode of RAW. “I'll take full blame for it,” Heyman said. He brought up that when he came out to CM Punk’s music a few years ago on RAW in Chicago shortly after Punk left the WWE and let the fans boo him. He lured the fans into the idea that he was on their side and then double crossed them and sold them on the Lesnar vs. The Undertaker match as he shut down the chants for Punk without raising his voice. “I'm surely talented enough to go into Minneapolis and manipulate the crowd to say or do anything I want them to say or do,” Heyman said. Heyman added that it is his job to take an impossible situation and make it look easy. “Ultimately, I failed in my task, and I own up to my failures like a man, and I accept them, and I move forward. Lesson learned,” Heyman said.
