Paul Heyman Comments On WWE Returning To The Road, What He Likes About Pat McAfee’s Commentary

What does Paul Heyman think about WWE returning to the road for live events again?

How about what “The Evil Genius” enjoys about the WWE commentary work of Pat McAfee?

Who better to ask than the special counsel to the WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns himself?

Longtime pro wrestling veteran Paul Heyman recently appeared as a guest on The A-Team on SportsTalk 790 for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.

Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where the current WWE performer touches on the aforementioned topics.

On WWE returning on the road to hold live events again for the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic first began: “I don’t lead a normal life, I serve as special counsel to the Tribal Chief, the undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns, so I wouldn’t know normal if it bit me in the ass. I will say that I love the fact that we’re going back to live events. It’s about time we gave an arena filled with people the chance to acknowledge and celebrate the greatness of the No. 1 sports entertainer/pro wrestler/athlete on the face of the planet today, Roman Reigns.

On what he enjoys about Pat McAfee: “What I’ve liked about what Pat McAfee has done is that he hasn’t tried to conform into the role of being the stereotypical color commentator, dating back to the days of when Roddy Piper was doing it in Georgia or when Jesse Ventura was doing it with WWE. Or when I was color commentator for Jim Ross and bitchslapped all of them and showed them how the job is really done. Pat is making it his own gig. Pat gives you his perspective, and he is as enthusiastic a fan of the product as anyone I’ve ever met. That permeates the broadcast. Pat is genuinely excited about being there and seeing these stars up close, and that comes through on television. As a viewer, it makes you more enthusiastic about the product. I love the job Pat is doing, as long as he continues to acknowledge Roman Reigns.”
