Paul Heyman noted on his Twitter account that he had to fight with Vince McMahon to allow him to give Brock Lesnar the nickname that became his catchphrase in WWE. Heyman tweeted last night:

"It's funny. Vince McMahon hated when I called Brock Lesnar 'The Next Big Thing!' HATED IT. WANTED ME TO STOP CALLING BROCK THAT NAME! Brock comments on it in his book, too. It was a real war to get Vince to let me keep calling Brock 'The Next Big Thing!'"
