During a recent episode of Grilling JR, Jim Ross spoke on why he thinks Paul Heyman might be the best promo in wrestling. Here’s what he had to say:
He’s probably the best promo guy in the business, if not in the top four or five without question. He’s effective and he’s been effective with every top talent. You think Heyman is ultra popular backstage right now in WWE? Unlikely. So what? He’s trusted with Brock Lesnar and now he’s being trusted with Roman Reigns. That says all I need to hear about how Heyman is perceived professionally. He’s professionally perceived as the best in the game. Just like I told him – and he laughs about this still to this day – I said to him off the air ‘Goddamn, you’re easy to hate.’ He looked at me incredulously like ‘Goddamn, that’s a little stiff, JR’. I said ‘No, Paul, that’s compliment….you’re a fucking heel, you’re a villain, I’m not supposed to like you.’ I said ‘consequently, you’re very easy to hate’ and that’s the best compliment I could give him.
