Paul Heyman started the journey in professional wrestling in the ’70s

Paul Heyman’s journey in professional wrestling started in the 1970s when he served as a photographer for Vince McMahon Sr. in WWWF. He later acted as a manager in WCW before using his own mind as the creative force behind ECW in the mid-90s.

Moving on, he also left his mark on WWE’s landmark “Attitude Era” by joining the infamous “Invasion” angle where he aligned himself with Stephanie and Shane McMahon. However, those efforts came up short since none other than Vince McMahon was standing against them. Paul Heyman later acted as manager for more legends like CM Punk, Brock Lesnar, Big Show, and Kurt Angle.

Since the summer of 2020, Paul Heyman has been appointed to be The Special Council to Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns which essentially helped to build one of the most impressive title reigns in WWE history. The Tribal Chief also acknowledged the Hall of Fame announcement in style by raising his finger on social media in Bloodline style.
