Longtime professional wrestling personality and evil mastermind Paul Heyman surprised his colleagues and acquaintances yesterday when he admitted, via Twitter, that he’s “not really a Paul Heyman guy.”
“Contrary to popular belief, I’m not really a fan of me,” the former ECW promoter tweeted via his @HeymanHustle account.
“To be honest, I think I’m a bit overrated.”
Heyman’s confession came as a shock to many in the wrestling business, since he is widely believed to be a megalomaniacal Svengali with a god complex (and a preposterous skullet).
CM Punk, a self-described “Paul Heyman guy” who frequently seeks guidance from his devious mentor, said he was “saddened and confused” by Heyman’s uncharacteristic expression of humility.
“Paul admitting that he’s not a Paul Heyman guy — man, what a pipe bomb,” said Punk.
