Fans on Raw this week learned the hard way that you don't interrupt Paul Heyman during a promo, no matter what the reason might be.
Last week on SmackDown Live A.J. Styles became the new WWE Champion. With Raw's champions getting set to do battle with their SmackDown Live counterparts, that title win naturally meant a pretty big change was made to the Survivor Series card. Instead of battling Jinder Mahal, the Universal Champion Brock Lesnar will now wrestle The Phenomenal One.
A change of that magnitude naturally garnered a response from The Beast Incarnate, or more specifically his advocate Paul Heyman. Lesnar and Heyman graced Raw with their presence this past Monday in order to address the change in opponent, and in typical Heyman fashion, he actually paid the new WWE Champion a fair few compliments. The underlying message was the same as always though. No matter how good the opponent, Lesnar will always win regardless.
Styles was not on Raw to respond to Heyman and his Beast, although that didn't stop someone else from interrupting Heyman's promo. Midway through his spiel a large section of the WWE Universe began chanting "she said yes." Clearly someone in the crowd had proposed and gotten the answer they were looking for. Heyman not liking the interruption was less than congratulatory, telling the new husband-to-be that she only said yes because she had never been face to face with a man like his client, Brock Lesnar.
There are a handful of people in the business today that are so good on the mic that you wouldn't want to interrupt them, and that when they are interrupted, they know exactly what to do and say. Paul Heyman is one of those people. Most other Superstars would have likely mixed up their words or simply tried to ignore what was going on around them in the same situation but no, not Heyman. He tackled the chants perfectly and got right back on track.
The promo that the newly engaged fans interrupted involved Heyman detailing five reasons why Styles versus Lesnar this Sunday at Survivor Series is can't miss. He certainly made a good case, but let's be honest, there probably weren't many people before Heyman made his case for the match that would have thought it wasn't already a dream match of epic proportions.
