"Back in two thousand and i don't know two thousand and nine thousand and i signed a deal because i don brock's book with brock harpercollins and they were so well received. I signed a deal to do my book with simon and schuster and i started to write it and there was no way to do it. There was just no way to do it. Because i could write a book just on my on my first year photographer this mystery. I could write a book on my first year as a performer. In this industry. I can write a book on the behind. The scenes machinations that i witnessed in nineteen eighty nine. Wcw just just just on the here alone let alone. Every bay of my life running. Easy w i could fill. An entire book was just insane. It was just so much going on the three week period in between the e w arena shows back in back in mind. Be three ninety four ninety three weeks. Just tell the narrative of that story and how the tv show is produced and how the tv show is edited and the concept and the discussions and the and the constant talk would talent and trying to get them to understand the character and and staying ahead of wwe instead of ww and knowing what when wcw is trying to raid our talent and fending them off or losing talent to them and always knowing who to bring in to replace that talent the three week period in between an easy w arena show was was worthy of an entire book. Know how you can encapsulate a life. Story of vince mcmahon. Even in bullet points even in both boys ages three hundred page book. You know even soundbites you know. I mentioned the vince upcoming document and the documentary. Ww network did on you was was. I think i mentioned this to you the other time i had you on the podcast but that is a must watch. If you're wrestling fan on the on the network the paul heyman doc For sure. I wanna wrap it up with this.

"I have to say this. I for one for one man to have. Two sets of twins is an amazing feat by the way. That's a very underrated. Fact about roman reigns so my question was about. Ww there's no offseason and the ww superstars. They don't really often get a chance to sort of disappear and maybe make the audience yearn for them again. Do do you think it would help of w superstars to take breaks. Go away in terms of character staying fresh maybe new start or you don't think that's important things on the person of depends on the person You know i i. If peaking blinders was on fifty two weeks a year. I would never get tired of tom. Hardy's portrayal of alfie. Solomon's never if i go on youtube and i i want to study tom. Hardy's portrayal of healthy solomon's. I can't go down the you to read the whole enough studying that man perform on that joe twice a week i never get tired of it. There are other there are other performances rother characters that need to cycle a need and need to need to take time off and refresh. Do i think it's i think it's a matter of the individual of exposure and i think it's what they do with that exposure if your character is developed and it matures in in in the fact that it stops growing and stops revealing new layers of the character and there's no more compelling a riveting circumstances to put that character in that character is gonna get stale and needs time off g. is for the character constantly grow and if the character dozen constantly grow but yes they should cycle they should cycle the character or the or the person himself or exemption. Say hey let me take some time here. I'm going to get staling minute. Move down the card keys. Always reinvent yourself and or to stay fresh and or to reveal new wrinkles new new layers new circumstances that you can place the character in that makes the character compelling and must see television. So how much input are you having right now into his character. I'm very were. i would say that. The the label special counsel is a is a very accurate onscreen and behind the.

"See what the most positive aspects of Eric Bischoff, and Paul Heyman are their creativity. I can stop them where I need to stop them. But other than that, let me just let these guys go and see what they would do in the sandbox that I've created, and you might end up with a pretty cool castle. I'm really optimistic about the whole thing. Some people are pessimistic, as long as Vince is nothing changes. Okay would WWE has evolved in change over the years more than almost any other company. How many entertainment companies have been around as long as WWE has have succeeded on the level. The WWE has very, very few. Especially all under the same leadership. So I think that Lorne Michaels is a genius. Steve Jobs as genius. Vince McMahon is genius. There are other geniuses by going to name them. All you know what I mean? There's a wrestling podcast, not a genius podcast. But I'm optimistic that Vince, McMahon is aware that in these two people, he's got brains that were creative enough, did they change the industry. Eric Bischoff changed the wrestling industry with the product that he put out Paul Heyman changed the wrestling industry with the product that he put out both of them. Did this with their creativity? It was no sneaks. It was no like, well, they were only able to do this because of this business move that business move. They both did it with the creativity on those shows Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff were able to create wrestling shows that made it. So wrestling fans felt like they could not miss. I felt like I could not miss an easy w show. I felt like even though I was a WWE fan I still needed to switch over to nitro to see what was going on over there. And for a moment in time. I said, maybe I'm not a WWE fan. I'm not a WCW fan. Maybe I'm an end W O fan. That's how strong this thing. Was. And at the end of the day, you could say, well, Kevin Nash, Scott hall Kokin these are WWE ideas, and you'd be right across the board. But you got to give the guy in charge credit for the good stuff as much as you blame him for the bad stuff. And that's Bishop for you. I'm excited change is good right now, as it is most times, change is good. Enough is enough. It's time for a change. What is gonna happen? I can't wait to see. But I'm glad we got to talk about it. Tweet me your opinions and whatnot. And we'll.

"The way Bischoff talks in seem like he's not that he's against it, but that he's hungry or that he's politicking to get back into the WWE. He's never seemed like that. And he hasn't been anywhere near since leaving. So, you know, for that to kind of come out of the blue is a surprise. But really, cool and really interesting one some promotional material came out, I think yesterday, and it was a local advertisements for Monday night, raw and for smackdown live with Paul Heyman on raw and Eric Bischoff on smackdown on these posters. These these visual things, and it said, you know, come buy tickets to Monday night raw he will Paul Heyman got in store, and here's some matches and superstars. That'll be their smackdown live. Come see smackdown. Eric Bischoff will be there by the LA but they're being advertised like they're number one, they're being advertised, they're going to be on screen, and number two. It sounds like these guys are going right to work, which wasn't denied or confirmed in WWE's original reports now, some people are saying, well, obviously this was in the books for a long time. Because this local materials out there, number one. Of course, this was in the, in the works for a long time, whether people knew it or not. And I don't think anybody knew it. But whether people knew it or not. It's not like they just figured on Monday. They would do this and then announced it on Thursday. You know what I mean? This is one of those things that you think about for a long time, and then you talk to the interested parties, and then you talk to your trusted compatriots. And then you go from there like this was a decision that I'm sure was many, many, many, many weeks in the making for all parties involved, and you don't think that many people knew about it, but in terms of the flyers being evidence that a lot of people knew about it. That's ridiculous. Like I could make those flyers. There are PNG's out there. I wouldn't even have to edit out the background to put all the superstars every single time we do an episode of not Sam wrestling. There's a, a poster made with the not Sam wrestling logo on it, and a superstar. That's on the whoever interviewing that week. I make those I'm MAC book as soon as I'm done recording the podcast. I just make the little graphic it takes five minutes. It's not a difficult task. Okay. We're not. This isn't nineteen Ninety-four like two thousand nineteen it would take five seconds to make those promotional materials. And some people are like, wow, you know, but there were hard copies that were sent out, which I mean, there were hard copies getting hard copies made printed, and sent would take three days if they popped up on Friday Thursday, you could send it out on Tuesday or Wednesday. Announce it the next day, I if you print, those on Wednesday and send them out you announce on Thursday and there on Friday. Yeah. Priority, mail and access to a printing press. I think WWE can handle both of those things, and in terms of the digital release, they literally could have made it an hour before the digital releases came out. So I don't think that, that, that tips, the hat to like this being a creative plan for a long time, and everybody knew about it at all. But I do think that it's interesting because already were. At this place where I we were saying, I don't know if they're going to be used on screen to now, it's part of what is being advertised? I've been on this podcast talking about how much I like raw and smackdown being different since the brand, I'm a fan of the brand split when the brands are kept separate. I think that having a mix and match of superstars on each roster hurts the integrity of the brand split and makes it so that people aren't as interested. You know, they don't know who's on which brand I don't know, who's on which brand, you know, at this point Samoa, Joe is challenging Kofi Kingston, and it takes two weeks before I realize, oh, I guess, technically Samoa Joe's Rog..

"While providing two distinct creative processes Ford's flagship shows so that's when I realized there isn't even for onscreen. This is real life. They're bringing Paul Heyman in to be the head guy of raw behind the scenes and Eric Bischoff to be the head guy of smackdown behind the scenes now mind is really blown because for the I believe, for the first time ever, and who would have thought it would happen in two thousand nineteen you've got, Vince, McMahon, Paul Heyman. An Eric Bischoff. WWE. E c w and WCW all three working together, as creative executives now it is poetic Justice that everybody's working under Vince McMahon, but still, I mean, just the fact that, you know. Think about it. You've got the WWE established brands that we have raw smackdown annex t you could say to five live, you could say x t u k, but those are more fringe brands off of these three big brands. You got Vince McMahon at the top of the food chain. And under him. You got Paul Heyman. Eric Bischoff triple h in credible. So that's a question that comes up right away. What about triple, h I thought triple h is always been the heir-apparent and what's going on with him. What about Stephanie McMahon? Well, triple h as made a statement and he said to people who pushed our did this on Twitter. He quote tweeted, the breaking news tweet from WWE, and he said, to people who pushed our industry and WWE forward over the last twenty five plus years. Great to have point and Eric Bischoff working on, Ron smackdown live. Welcome back capitals to the team. That's a good corporate response to the news by triple h in letting everybody know that there's no beef. There's no hostility in a very public way. Now, clearly I, I mean we there's a there's a lot to dissect here I why is it happening? That's the question. The people's why is this happening. Now. Is, Vince McMahon nervous about all elite wrestling, apparently, the rumor is last rumor that I read is eighty w is officially going to debut on TNT. I've heard. The Wednesday before the first Friday that smackdown debuts on FOX. Now this does line up with the TV seasons obviously, but it'll be that first week of October. I think, and you'll have Monday night, Ron USA, apparently, you're gonna have Awa TNT, and then you're gonna have smackdown on FOX every other day Tuesday and Thursday. You're gonna have to find something else to do with your life. But dough Monday Wednesday Friday, those year wrestling days. Unbelievable. But the point is that AWS is getting more and more serious. And by the way, anybody that's sitting here going like. Well, why is WWE streaming evolve the same night as Awa is doing this event, and you're going, okay? Well, today's later Awa we're going to debut on TV the same weakest MAC down debuted on FOX. This. It's a two sided situation here, but. I don't think the other question is what about the ratings? Is this in response is a panic in response to the declining ratings of Ron smackdown? Of course, people make keeping track of those originally, you could write the rating declining off to. Well, you know, less people are watching TV there's more stuff going on the internet. But now when you're comparing it year to date from a year ago as opposed to from ten years ago, and you're seeing a rapid decline. That is not on par with other TV shows. That's when you start going, okay. There's something happening here and something that maybe is not connecting in the ways that we needed to connect. WWE is a very unique company and is is in a very unique position right now in the sense that for the longest time. And this was really all brought together in my opinion during the Monday night wars. I think that that's when the, the average person the Joe blow if you will start paying attend. TV ratings TV ratings became the Mark of success between raw and nitro there on at the same time. How do you tell what shows doing better by the number of people watching? And by the way, it does bother me now that they talk about ROY in nitro..

"But I decided to put this audio out to everybody because everybody's talking about it quite frankly, I was over at the wrestling universe store yesterday where I found an e c w ring in box is mint in box. The box isn't mint. But the ring is mint in box, very, very difficult to find with Sabah with rob van dam. I'm assuming with all the accessories, I haven't decided if I'm gonna open it up, yet or not the boxes a little beat up, which like, because it makes me a motivates me to open it up. And to really work on my completing my. CW figure collection, but I get there and the wonderful man that runs the wrestling universe store in Queens, New York here as the first question. Hey, what about Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff? So Thursday the same day that not Sam wrestling comes out. We were twelve hours too late for the news to be talked about this week on the podcast. Tweet goes out. And when I first tweeted about it when I first responded to the tweet, I swear to you, I thought this was a storyline thing. Tweet goes out with picture of Paul Heyman and a picture of Eric Bischoff. And it says, Paul Heyman has been named executive director of WWE raw while Eric Bischoff has been named executive director of smackdown live. And I was like, whoa, so immediately. I thought it was storyline authority figure, and I was into it because I felt like distribution to when it was Rick flair running raw in Vince McMahon. Running smackdown. Or even the original idea of the of the draft brand split in its newest incarnation, where you had Stephanie running raw and Shane running smackdown, where the two shows are different and there feels like there is some competition going on. There's a reason for survivor series to be the one night of the year. When Ron smackdown go head to head and competition. But because that's been missing for a long time now. And now at the wildcard rule and all this stuff going on. It's like silliness. It's, it's, you know, we, we don't even have we don't even know who's on what brand anymore. So I figure okay Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff are two of the best onscreen thorny figures of all time. I mean Paul Heyman while he was the real life, owner of w being the guy that represented he w to the people was incredible. I mean just go back to one night, stand two thousand five and watch that promo that gets delivered. Obviously Paul Heyman at that time is not the head of CW w is out of business all ready, but just listen to the promo, he delivers I mean, I don't have to convince you guys that Paul Heyman is an excellent onscreen to television character. I think that's been pretty well established by now at the same time you've got Eric Bischoff who not only say what you want about him. But in terms of WCW, TV, and Nitra. Eric Bischoff was a good authority figure on nitro Eric Bischoff behind the microphone was a good addition to the new world order, you could argue that, you know, I it led to him making bad decision behind the scenes, you could argue that he favored himself, too much and put too much of a spotlight on himself, you could argue off and that's fine. I'm willing to have those conversations but. Just in terms of being a performer, I don't think you can argue there at Bischoff was great performer in WCW. And then when he came to WWE, I would say next to Vickie Guerrero, he's one of the top, two onscreen authority, general manager figures of all time in WWE, Jack Tunney, Eric Bischoff Figaro. It doesn't get much better than that. So I'm saying this is all good. I clicked a link and this is what it says WWE has named Paul Heyman is executive director of Monday night, raw an Eric Bischoff, as executive director of smackdown live newly created positions reporting directly to WWE chairman and CEO, Vince McMahon. And I'm going. Doesn't sound exactly like I thought it was it continues in their executive roles aiming Bischoff will oversee the creative development of WWE's flagship programming and ensure integration across all platforms in line of business that doesn't sound like onscreen character work. The creation of these roles further establishes WWE's ability to continuously reinvent it's global brand..

"Being serious before. Really? I mean, I I am busier than Bill Belichick on Super Bowl. He. But what makes you think I was clowning around? I was serious and everything I was saying just because I see it with Grayson style and charm doesn't mean I'm not saying something that I truly advocate for that position. Listen, Paul, no, one is a better advocate. And then you, and I have no doubt that you are busy beyond. So I am word to the to the highest degree. And that is why I will get this podcast back on focus Rene. What makes Paul such an effective public speaker? Oh, wow. I mean, he's just so compelling to watch he's so animated and his just the way that his mind works. I think makes him the best at what he doesn't. You've already said, you know, with the accolade the what he's been able to do in the world of sports entertainment. I think anybody that can kind of drink from. The the knowledge of a Paul Heyman is going to be better off for it. And I think just able to watch him and the public speaker and as an entertainer. Yeah. I easy magic. He's got that little magic thing about them. All what makes Renee young show affective as a public speaker in broad skills. The I can pretty much with all your military aside. Teach anyone to deliver a message in a soundbite when I can't peach out someone how to improv improv in speaking. And in in dialect is a reflex. It's not a skill and Rene young has it, and she has it in overabundance. It's the same way than if you approach a trained fighter if you approach a Floyd Mayweather, Brock Leser, a Ronda Rousey Conor McGregor, you know, someone like Khabib, and and and you approach them. And even if you're from the side, if you throw a punch towards them, they will block that punch and deck you, and when you have hit the ground, they sit there and go, oh, man. Oh my God. I've been in a fight. They will not even realize that they blocked the punch, and they are on or kick ahead. But because it's a reflex. It just happens. And then those Sunday realize something they had engaged in something when you engage.

"But it certainly is a possibility once John CENA's shows you that bloodlust in his I I I don't think he goes back to being cartoony, John seena. I don't think he goes back to me and cartoony John CENA it for me. It's it's I know how passionate he is. Sometimes he goes to the passion. Well, one too many times what what has gotten me, and I'm a big shit Johnson fan anyway because I am a top guy. I know what it takes to be a top guy. So I watch everything that he does. But when I like now is. The focus and intensity of who. And what Johnson is and what he will do to beat Brock listeners ask not beat Brock listener. But to beat his s cannon Willie do that. And what will happen if he came? He's a fascinating fascinating time for the character of Johnson and for his audience because clearly he's gonna have to undergo some sort of evolution and transformation. And whether that detour leads him to becoming a far more aggressive character, whether that Detroit to becoming a Paul Heyman guy, whether that each were leads the character to shift his focus into his matches more so than having the sense of humor. And being the ultimate face of the company is is going to be a fascinating journey. This is really. In WWE, this is new turf because as we talked about earlier with the the the difference between the New York style of booking opposed to other styles of booking the dusty silo booking, which was very hill oriented, this is the first time that I can recall with the journey of the baby face is as important as the destination and again to draw parallel here. The last time they had such a long journey was the evolution of the stone cold character going all the way finally to where the action Mike Tyson was conspiring against you to where you had to overcome all the odds at wrestlemainia for your first title win against heartbreak kid. Sean and differs being a mine a little bit more attitude. No, Emily bit more family friendly, but a Saint parallel. Yes. It was the journey of the stone cold character zoo where finally you had the sound bite from JR that the. Austin era has begun. We've been in the scene Arafah ten years what this is going to have a new John scene of wrinkle to it. We are about to see a change in the character. So where does that persona go? How can I push that persona into a compromising situation that he has to verbally swing? His way out of how does the beast Brock Lessner position. John seena into a fight that John CENA has to violate his own code of hustle, loyalty and respect. When does fighting evil require you to become evil to defeat evil? And that's where Johnson has character has to go. And how he comes out on the other side to me is the most fascinating aspect of it. Because what happens once it gets a taste of that evil? Does he like it does he wanna stay down that road? Yeah. See that's that's an interesting question that only the story line playing out can answer..

"But you really coming into the zone where you're at right now. Just unheard of. And Jim Ross we're talking about are on earlier podcast. And then just as we speak Monday night, raw was in Anaheim, California, John CENA who wasn't at the Monday night, raw following the beep down the kid had taken too many suplexes shows up and says, I think he knocked out of the park because I was wondering where he's going to go with this. He didn't make any excuses. He owned up to the asks weapon, and he said, and there was the panel out there. Shawn Michaels HOGAN and RIC flair and says his mission was not to eight rock Glasner his mission at night of champions, Paul was to beat Brock listeners ass. I love it. You guys get you work cut out for you in the summer slam match. I didn't think John CENA ever got around to getting to that place where she spoke of which was gonna make so much a role model for the kids here. Was going to have to dig into very deep. Deep dark place, the F I've cut him off from that all German suplex, your thoughts on where you guys are at right now because I'm loving the way things unfolded. I'm fascinated by what happens with John seen a character from here. Because clearly making the statement that he's walking into a title match. And it's a rematch that he invoked who beat Brock leisures ass is mission is not to win the title back. His mission is not to beat Brock Lessner. His mission is to beat Brock Leicester's ass. At is an intriguing moment in the the ark of the John sina character. And what's obvious as we have three more weeks of television before neither champions to me is at four John seen to beat Brock Leicester's ass. John CENA has stopped being the role model hustle, loyalty and respect will get slaughtered by the beast rock Lessner every single time. So Johnson is going to have to find a dark place in his soul to where he's willing to stick. Both thumbs through Brock listeners is that. That John CENA is willing to do the things that he wasn't willing to do against Bray. Wyatt at wrestlemainia that the pursuit of the championship and regaining the title who be your hero is now secondary to John sina because he's on a personal mission to exact revenge for the most heinous ask kicking slash victimization. He's ever taken in his life. This gives me. So much promo material to work with over the next three weeks, it gives the announcer so much to talk about it. Other superstars something to say. It's a place where John sina has never been it's unchartered turf for the top star in the company, and he's the top star for the past decade. I am very interested to see when I push John CENA's buttons next Monday on raw where his character takes the rebuttal. But it's going to be interesting to see and for me as well. The detour that he takes from being the role model that he is to go around to being what he needs to be to destroy wrought Lessner to go back to being the role model and the person who John seena at his core is and who the people believe him to be. He's got to make that detour to come back to ground zero. You know, once you take that detour can you ever really go back once they see John seen stick his thumb through someone's. I once they see John CENA tried to break someone's neck, once they see John CENA with blood lust in his eyes. Can he really go back to being the wristband wearing pump up your sneakers? Let me tell a fart joke on television, John CENA, or are we at the precipice of? The evolution of the John seen a character. You know, I mean, how far can it go? I can sell it to you. As if Johnson a truly wants to beat Brock less nurse asks Johnson has to start thinking like a Paul Heyman guy. So is that the road John CENA starts to travel down. Now, I'm not suggesting that's where we're going..

"So were you more commentary flavor and than the personality that you became once you turn into a manager. I tried to call the action as a straight play by I wasn't pulling dangerously. Okay. So I was I was just Paul Heyman. And I'll just try. Two. I was trying to be a play by play guy. But I was so acerbic I was such an asshole at that age. Oh, God was as I just I couldn't hide it. And so I want to ask you because your if your own life's dream, and you're still young stir to getting the visit here you are. But you're also so I mean, we'll you condescending and your commentary. What do you mean by that? No. I just I always think for the heels I could always justify things, and I end up I tried to put heat on the heels for kicking the crap at the baby faces. But then again, ladies and gentlemen, there is one man standing toll tonight, and you may not like them what he standing over your hero and saying well that that didn't do him any good. I just went all the heat on myself. You know, I learned about the psychology of speaking from Freddie, blassie and Abano and Ernie Roth the grand wizard was raised by heels. Right. You know, so it's like the scorpion and the frog in a wide thing. It's nature. You know? So I'm doing play-by-play. And of course, the object is the put sympathy and hope on the baby faces and to put heat and venom and disdain and disgust and contempt on the heels end up advocating for the hills. I was such a horrible play by play man because I ended up Morphing into being the color guy because that's just the viewpoint that I always had.

"Done a line of cocaine, and there are several reasons why number one you remember me when I was younger and much thinner. My my level of intensity was enough to just to be a walking heart attack as it was. I could never imagine putting an upper in the my body. I was sure my heart would pull up number two. There was a very famous basketball player on lend bias, and this was when I was a kid and Len bias, what was you know, the top draft pick one of the top draft picks went out with all his buddies on the night. He was signed by the NBA snorts allina cocaine drops dead. And I just always imagined. Anytime. I I was even a rounded or in a room where we're we're we're the cocaine was flowing freely. I always imagined doing one line dropping dead and looking up from my grave and seeing my father standing over my grave crying and saying of all the things to throw your life away for this is what you chose. And it just the image of my dad. Crying over migrate because I threw everything away for cocaine that deterred me from ever to this day. My my father even not even here anymore and to this day. I would never dare ingest even online because I'm not I just I always had that image of my father crying over my grave saying of all the things that throw your life away for you chose this. And I've ever backing today I did delve into a land here they're gonna say that now that was many many years ago, but I stop at shit because I didn't want to be the guy they got remembered for the guy this call him. Promo here. Such spectacular. Run was Gatland at casket because didn't know when to say when or just one thing would lead to another. So I love that shit alone way back in the day. But so that leads you into when you when you when you hustle that job at studio fifty four, and if you guys watch my name is Paul Heyman DVD outstanding DVD, which I highly suggest if you have any lover care about the business of pro wrestling any whatsoever. You will enjoy this DVD? So full of information, passion knowledge, but you got into the business, and you you you went over to studio fifty four is a photographer because you had some photographer skills and then because the promoter lost his job. You started promoting that's your first promoting job. You started help starting the career. Bam. Bam bigelow. But then, but that was always your means to an end to get to the rest of the business, your I.

"Onto liege. You you told you way in his job, and he started I guess they convince you knew snuck into that job at studio fifty four I actually also use it before I was nineteen years old. I snuck in when I was fourteen years old. I was obsessed with trying to understand how the show itself worked. And then when you say show, you're talking about the business of pro wrestling. Yes, sir. Because you always want to be on the end said, yeah, I just couldn't see myself sitting in the stands. I. It wasn't where I got my enjoyment. I got my enjoyment from understanding how things were done. I've always been more inclined to be a writer, a producer director than either performer or a fan. And I always wanted to know. Okay. Well, why was this match on first instead of third? Well, why they end the show with that maj not put it in the middle. Why is this thing in the middle and how come there are no two tag team matches in a row? What's the psychology behind this? What why does this baby face win? And then a heel wins and then to heels, and then the third is a baby just all the different combinations. That can happen in a show. What what what's the psychology? What's the mentality behind that? It always fascinated me. So even as a kid I didn't want to just sit in the stands. I wanted to be behind the scenes I wanted to learn the industry from the inside. So I found a way to get a hold of insect man senior. And I got my way into Madison Square Garden. And at fourteen years old now, and this is all in the the Paul Heyman DVD, which is outstanding. It's my name is Paul Heyman. Right. Yes. Maybe ain't got him in. My name is Paul. I watch this year the day. It was a bad ass video. But the question I was going to get to because and you disappointed upon us. It wouldn't necessarily your lover taken pitchers. Got you on inside of the wrestling business you use as a tool to get in the system. Yeah. I exploited the opportunity of having a really nice camera in a photo lab in my basement to get me inside. So I could start the process of learning the actual industry. Okay. That being said what was your rig when you first started out? And if you were left your own devices today, and you've got everybody running cameras for, you know, ours down there, and he's your your Taga for here, and you work with them all over the place. What was your startup system back in the day? And if you were to grab a camera today and just start taking digital pictures and S L are maybe what would you use? The camera that everybody on my staff likes to brag about is the cannon seventy right because it's not only still pictures. But it can also be used for video at someone to people use video these days. Yes. And the sound on it is pretty damned good the quality. I like from what I can tell and I'm only speaking from the experience of reviewing the work that submitted to me, I think the seventy is far better than the five. The a significant upgrade is is the seventy. But I mean, I haven't picked up. I mean, I I use my iphone for pictures too. I got a bad. Well, I got a little t to that. I take pictures of my dear with, but what was your go to rig when you first got into business? Hell back when you were a kid I had a Minolta and I had as permits for president. Of course, whether what other Jewish get doesn't exploit all of his presence. I someone gave me a really nice Nikon camera, but I didn't like shooting with the Nikon 'cause it. It was too stiff of a camera for me, the Minolta was far better. So what I did was I'd have both cameras around my neck, and I was a big believer in black and white photography's is far more dramatic of lighting and back..

"They're giving Zelina Vega. Paul Heyman's lines. My name is Alina Vega. And this is Bob, blah, blah, blah, blah. I think that they're doing that on purpose. I think they want people to drop parallels to Paul Heyman and Selena Vega. There aren't that many managers agents advocates there aren't that many people in that role in WWE right now. So I feel like when somebody does pop up whether it's Drake maverick or or Zelina Vega or Paul Heyman. It's because. WWE has a lot of faith in those people. And I think WWE has a tremendous amount of faith in Selena Vega. And they should I mean, she just instantly has a way of going out there and owning arena, she gets on that microphone and she forces people to pay attention to her which you can't take for granted. I mean that is a that is a very valuable skill to have. So I was really happy to see her get the shine in that segment, and I was happy to see Johnson and Becky Lynn together when they've formed the tag team, I was like. Let's not make this hokey because you run the risk of Becky Lynn coming across like, John CENA's assistant. You know what I mean? Becky Lynch to get the rub from John CENA is a good thing. But to get what I call the tugboat rub in the sense that okay? We want you to cheer for Becky Lynch because she's friends with John seen like I don't know Becky needs that and that's why I thought it was so great at the end of the match when Johnson it goes for the handshake with his hair all over the place and Becky Lynn hit him with the you can't see me completely faked him out and walked out elbows. Pointing outwards proud as a peacock walking up that I'll as if to say now, John I don't need to shake your hand in case. You hadn't heard I'm already the man loved it. I thought that the fact that it ended. There was perfect. Let's get to the number one story of the week.
