    Heyman isn't bad for the WWE, he's a manager, he's a character. He is what Bobby Heenan, Jim Cornette, and JJ Dillion were before him. He's a mouthpiece for a wrestler. Heyman talks the shit, and Brock delivers the beatings, how does that equate to "stupid"? What's bad for the WWE is non-sensical writing, bad booking, stale characters, scripted promos and so many other things that Heyman isn't responsible for. Heyman may be a bit repetitive but he is entertaining, and when he's motivated he cuts a better promo than almost every talent on that roster. Fun fact, Heyman did speak for Austin very early on in his career. Ahh the Dangerous Alliance, they were fun.

    He wasn't awful. But it certainly wasn't his best attribute. He actually had some decent charisma in his original run. But yeah Pauls ability to weave a tale, and captivate an audience with words is definitely valuable. Even as the heel duo he gets the crowd chiming in on his high point catch lines cause he just has so much damn energy in his delivery. It dosen't work in every capacity. But with Lesnar, it seems to work well. I had heard rumblings of Heyman possibly going with rousey but I think that was only if brock left as expected, which as we see now isn;t the immediate case.

    I agree, Heyman is a genius in promo but Brock looks dumb if he can't express himself on his own.

    Brock has his moments in soundbites, but anything more and he is very clunky. Heyman on the other hand is an excellent talker and I think he makes an excellent mouthpiece for the monster he represents.

    Off the cuff, emotional Brock is awesome.

    Long winded scripted Brock is terrible.

    Heyman is one of the absolute best.

    Anyone saying he is bad for WWE are silly.
