Paul Heyman has gone all out with his description of one element of professional wrestling he particularly enjoys, describing it as “spiritually orgasmic” and “better than sex”.
Known throughout his time with WWE for many roles including the advocate, executive director and even company owner, the current ‘Special Counsel’ to Universal Champion Roman Reigns is known as the best performers in the business, especially when it comes to using the microphone.
Speaking on The Nick Cattles Show, Paul Heyman spoke about how getting a reaction from a wrestling crowd is so special, going in to even further detail about how much it means to him.
Just the interaction with the audience. I love to play with an audience. Roman Reigns and The Usos love to play with an audience. If you’re in WWE and you don’t find the interaction with an audience to be spiritually orgasmic, you’re in the wrong promotion. We are everything that a live concert is supposed to be. The audience itself is a character in the show. To play with that audience and interact with that audience is the best part of it. It’s a high. It’s beyond Rockstar status.
It’s an exquisite moment that you get to experience and if it’s done right, it’s better than sex, at least the sex I’ve had or the sex my partners tell me they’ve had with me. It’s magnificent, a great experience. When you get to play with that crowd…I’ve been talking for a living for 35 years and I still find it difficult to convey in words the enormity of the fulfilment that one feels playing with a live crowd, especially on live television.
Paul Heyman’s current charge Roman Reigns will be facing WWE Champion Big E at Survivor Series.
The Special Counsel even went so far as to get physically involved in a match recently, as he tagged in to dark match after WWE SmackDown.
