Backstage Extreme Rules Paul Heyman Rumor Killer


During last night’s (Sun. July 14, 2019) WWE Extreme Rules pay-per-view (PPV), a rumor began circulating suggesting that Paul Heyman was upset that the Intercontinental Title match between Shinsuke Nakamura and Finn Balor was placed on the pre-show.

Ryan Satin of Pro Wrestling Sheet took to Twitter to refute this rumor. Here’s what he had to say:

According to reputable sources, the random report claiming Paul Heyman was upset about Finn Balor vs Nakamura taking place on the kickoff show is false. I’m told people were laughing about the report backstage and one source in the know said it’s “one hundred percent bulls*hit.”

Also, PWInsider’s Mike Johnson confirmed Satin’s report with one of his own:

No truth to story making rounds was upset backstage at Extreme Rules over IC title being on Kickoff Show. In fact, talent were showing the rumor to Heyman & joking about it with him backstage tonight. No blowups backstage at PPV with anyone, Heyman or otherwise.
