Here are the highlights:
Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar’s relationship:
We’ve been programmed to believe or understand that managers can control their wrestlers, correct? Does Paul Heyman really have any control over Brock Lesnar? Brock runs the show, and Paul is along for the ride. Brock lets Paul do all of his talking, but when it comes to doing whatever the hell he wants to do, Brock just does it, and you can see the look of shock on Paul’s face. Last night in that opening segment, Paul Heyman did not approve of what Brock Lesnar was doing. He’s questioning Brock, he’s asking Brock to stop, he knows there’s going to be repercussions for what Brock is doing.
Praising Lesnar’s attack on Rey and Dominick Mysterio:
What we saw last night was why we fell in love with pro wrestling. It’s the shock, it’s the fear, it’s that roller coaster ride of emotions, and it started right when he came out, to what he did to Rey Mysterio, what he did to his son, and then finishing it off, attacking them again and then just walking off. And you now as a fan, want Rey Mysterio to get retribution on Brock Lesnar. That’s what pro wrestling is all about…that’s the foundation of this sport. I swear, I thought that was one of the best segments I’ve seen on Monday Night RAW in years.
