Paul Heyman DVD looks good
Paul Heyman has long been one of the most interesting men in the history of professional wrestling. He has had a long and storied career, starting as a photographer for wrestling magazines in the early 80s, becoming an onscreen manager/character in the late 80s and early 90s, before achieving his greatest fame as the owner and head creative writer for Extreme Championship Wrestling in the 90s up until it folded in 2001.
He immediately joined WWE after ECW went out of business. Heyman and WWE have had a tumultuous off-and-on relationship in the 13 years since. He first came back as an onscreen announcer before settling into an onscreen authority role character and manager. He also had a couple stints on the WWE creative team, helping craft storylines and matches.
From what you can see in the trailer, it looks like we're going to get the complete story. It features comments from people who really love Heyman: Tommy Dreamer and Mick Foley, to name a few and it also features people who didn't like him: Jerry Lawler and Stephanie McMahon, for starters.
I'm eagerly anticipating this 3-disk release from WWE.
