Paul Heyman On What It’s Like Working With WWE Chairman Vince McMahon

WWE Star and Universal Champion Roman Reigns' Special Counsel Paul Heyman recently had a conversation with BT Sports’ Ariel Helwani on what it’s like working with WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.

Paul Heyman said:

“Vincent Kennedy McMahon’s mindset is always, ‘Rip the Band-aid off!'”

Paul Heyman then visualized a conversation he would have with the WWE Chairman and CEO, which you can check out below:

Vince McMahon: Well what do we have to do this?

Paul Heyman: Well, you know, Vince, it’s going to be a slow process, and I think we’re going to get the glasses off of Helwani, and he’s going to get Lasik surgery, and he’ll probably want to do this around February. You know, February because glasses will be in… it’ll match his winter coats.

Vince McMahon: Wait a minute. Helwani’s going to take off his glasses and get Lasik surgery, not wear glasses anymore?

Paul Heyman: Yes.

Vince McMahon: [claps] Thursday!

Paul Heyman: Thursday? Thursday! What do you mean, Thursday? He needs time.

Vince McMahon: There is no time now, rip the Band-aid off.

Paul Heyman then expounded more on what it's like working with Vince McMahon.

Paul Heyman said:

“If you know you’re gonna do it, if you know that those glasses are coming off, if you know you’re not going to wear glasses on the air anymore as of February, the culture here is, do it yesterday.”
