Early career

Paul Heyman made his managerial debut on March 18, 1985, initially appearing on the Northeast independent circuit before moving to a more high-profile stint with Florida Championship Wrestling in 1986. There he joined forces with Kevin Sullivan and Oliver Humperdink and first became known as Paul E. Dangerously (many still refer to him as "Paul E.") because of his resemblance to Michael Keaton in the movie Johnny Dangerously in both of their younger days. From there, he traveled to Memphis and the Continental Wrestling Association to manage Tommy Rich and Austin Idol in a heated feud with Jerry Lawler, a war which later carried over to the American Wrestling Association (AWA) -- with the Original Midnight Express (Dennis Condrey and Randy Rose) taking over for Idol and the face-turned Rich). Heyman's gimmick was basically an extension of his personality: a brash New Yorker, often seen holding a mobile phone, which was occasionally used as a "foreign object" (it was quite large, due to the technology of the late 1980s). After departing the AWA, Heyman went to the Alabama-based Continental Wrestling Federation and first became allied with Eddie Gilbert in Gilbert's Hot Stuff Inc. stable. is the 77th day of the year (78th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ... -1...

After ECW folded, Heyman became a broadcaster for the WWF, replacing Jerry Lawler (who had quit the WWF in protest when then-wife Stacy Carter was released by the company) as color commentator for RAW in March 2001. During that time, he resumed his rivalry with Jim Ross. In July, while retaining his commentator role, Heyman recreated ECW as a stable, which then immediately merged with Shane McMahon's WCW to form the Alliance during the Invasion angle.

Heyman led Lesnar to the WWE Undisputed Championship when Lesnar beat The Rock at SummerSlam. Then at the Survivor Series, Heyman turned on Lesnar and helped Big Show take the title from him. Just before Lesnar's title match against Kurt Angle at WrestleMania XIX, Lesnar challenged his former manager to a steel cage match. After his defeat, Heyman left for a while, returning to assume the on-camera role of General Manager of the Thursday night show SmackDown!, realigning himself with Lesnar until March 22, 2004, when he was drafted to Eric Bischoff's RAW, and promptly quit rather than work for arch-nemesis Bischoff, the man who he blamed for killing ECW by raiding its talent.

His RAW draft pick was former ECW wrestler (and Money in the Bank contract holder) Rob Van Dam, and his SmackDown! draft pick was Kurt Angle, Angle then came down to the ring and attacked Foley, hitting him with an Angle Slam. Also of note, Heyman predicted that Rob Van Dam would defeat WWE Champion John Cena at ECW One Night Stand 2006 and then declare himself the new ECW World Heavyweight Champion.

At One Night Stand 2006, Van Dam defeated John Cena to win his first World Championship, the WWE Championship. After John Cena knocked an ECW referee unconscious, Edge (in a disguise) appeared and speared Cena through a table, before taking out SmackDown! referee Nick Patrick, allowing Van Dam to hit a frog splash on Cena. With no referee available Paul Heyman ran down the aisle to count the pinfall. The next night on RAW Heyman confirmed that because the championship match was contested under "ECW rules" (which means, essentially, there are no rules) that the decision stands and RVD is the "Undisputed" WWE Champion.

Heyman had previously implied that RVD would "re-christen" the WWE Championship into the ECW Championship (Like Shane Douglas). However, Van Dam elected to keep both title belts (He kept the WWE Championship because "it spins"), and was recognised as both the WWE and ECW Champion.


On the July 4, 2006 edition of ECW, Big Show challenged Rob Van Dam to a match for the ECW Championship. Near the end of the match, Big Show took out the referee prior to RVD hitting a Five-Star Frog Splash on Show. Heyman then came out to count the pin (just like at One Night Stand) but stopped at the count of 2. He then instructed Big Show to chokeslam Van Dam on a steel chair that had been used earlier in the match. Big Show pinned RVD and Heyman made the 3 count, "screwing" RVD out of the ECW Championship. Being that Philadelphia was "the home of ECW", and the audience at the Wachovia Center was the first "true ECW-style" fanbase for an ECW on Sci-Fi show, the fans were so incensed by the title change that many of them threw garbage and debris into the ring. This marked the second time Paul Heyman screwed someone over for a heavyweight title to join the Big Show, with the first being Survivor Series 2002 when Paul did the same thing to Brock Lesnar for the WWE Championship.

WWE.com then (kayfabe) announced that Heyman was suspending Van Dam for 30 days (mirroring the legit WWE executive decision, due to his and Sabu's recent arrests on drug possession charges.) Heyman has since begun referring to himself as the "Messiah" and "Father Of ECW", stating that the reason for his actions were because "anything [can] happen in ECW" and RVD got what he deserved. He also began being accompanied to ECW events by a pair of "private security guards" in riot gear (in actuality the Basham Brothers), ostensibly to protect him from ECW wrestlers and fans who are angry about his recent actions. Heyman's character has also been shown as having a bias toward the "New faces of ECW" (wrestlers who never wrestled for the original incarnation) instead of the "ECW Originals". The only "New face of ECW" he had not shown bias towards was CM Punk, likely due to Punk's status as a babyface.

IGN: Paul Heyman Interview (825 words)
Paul Heyman: That was always our goal, to transform it from a bingo hall while at the same time expand ourselves.
Paul Heyman: No, and to be honest, I'm not even all that crazy about some of the matches they picked.
Paul Heyman: We were actually negotiating to do Showtime until WWE went to Spike TV and they got the exclusive agreement with Viacom.
NEWSBOARD - RECAP: Paul Heyman On TSN's "Off The Record" (1396 words)
Heyman agrees to a point, but also a dynamic of confrontation between Steve and Vince McMahon was violated when Austin decided not to work things out or even a “screw you, I’m leaving.” Vince loved the confrontational aspect in their relationship and felt that Steve didn’t give Vince a chance to talk.
Heyman thinks the situation was that it was hard for the company to say that the character needed to be freshened up, and Austin had a problem with this.
Heyman replies that Van Dam’s strengths in WWE are not as apparent as they were to him in ECW, in that Heyman could go out of his way to accentuate his strengths and hide his weaknesses, and almost lead him by the hand, as this is what Heyman believes a good booker does with talent.
