Paul Heyman recently spoke with Philly.com to promote WrestleMania 29. Here are some highlights:
Working with CM Punk and Brock Lesnar at WrestleMania:
“How could it be bad for me? I have two of the three main events properly represented on the biggest Wrestlemania of all time in the New York/New Jersey metropolitan area. How could things be going anything but splendidly for me? I’m ecstatic with my current role in WWE. I get to work every Monday with my two best friends: Brock Lesnar and CM Punk. I have ‘The Beast’ [Lesnar] and ‘The Best’ [Punk].”

PWInsider.com is reporting that both Chris Jericho and Brock Lesnar have signed new WWE contracts. Jericho has signed a short-term deal which will see him compete on WWE shows through WrestleMania 29. PWInsider adds that Jericho was kept hidden in a bus until his time was up for the Rumble to keep the element of surprise. He left WWE this past August to tour with his band Fozzy. Meanwhile, former WWE and UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar also penned a new – and most likely a multi-million dollar – deal with WWE. His one-year limited appearance contract through WrestleMania 29 has been extended for another two years, keeping him around through WrestleMania 31.

MMAjunkie recently talked with Paul Heyman and here are the highlights:
On if Lesnar is a UFC Hall of Famer: “Of course he is [a UFC Hall of Famer]. Listen, here’s the thing: Look at the three that he lost to, number one. Number two, what if Brock Lesnar did what everyone else did and said, ‘Feed me a guy every other month for three years so I’ll get six victories a year. I’ll be 18-0 before you put me in there with a Frank Mir, a former UFC heavyweight champion, or Randy Couture and the legends of legends in UFC. But he didn’t do that. He walked in and said give me your best.”

Tomorrow night the superstars of WWE bring together a show that has taken Hollywood by storm (pardon the pun) over the past few years. This year is no exception. The show is headlined by “The Perfect Storm”, when Triple H takes on Brock Lesnar. This match will be physically intense. It’s going to be as Jim Ross would say a slobber knocker. The show also features a triple threat match for the WWE Championship. CM Punk defends against John Cena and the Big Show. Last Night the World’s Championship match was reinstated. Sheamus will now defend the title against Alberto Del Rio.
