Source: The InfamousPaul Heyman recently spoke with Bill Donnelly of The Infamous to promote WWE's WrestleMania XXX. Below are some highlights from the interview:
Settling into a new role these days:
"I think I'm even more passionate now than I ever have been in my life but I'm more mature and therefore I've learned the art of diplomacy in stark contrast to the act of being bombastic and screaming at the top of my lungs to make myself be heard."
His recent CM Punk promo in Chicago:
"The easiest interview I've ever done in my entire career. Because I knew the task at hand. Think about this. I didn't say one disparaging thing about CM Punk. It's because I have nothing disparaging to say about him. I said, "If CM Punk were in this ring tonight, he would prove to everyone that he is what he always claims to be: The best in the world." And I believe that to be true! I said everything about CM Punk that I felt in my heart and at the end of the day, we don't have that television show on the air to sing the praises of those who are not with us or just heap praise on people because we like them. The television show is a promotional vehicle to entice the audience to purchase the network or the individual pay-per-view. My task at hand is to elicit the response from the viewer that they find the Brock Lesnar versus Undertaker match compelling enough to purchase the pay-per-view or get involved with WWE Network to see the match. So when I went out in Chicago, I knew my responsibility was to sell you on Brock Lesnar vs The Undertaker any way that I had to, which included sitting there for the first ten minutes and discussing the 800-pound elephant in the room, which is why CM Punk wasn't appearing in his hometown."
How WrestleMania XXX should end:
"With Brock Lesnar dragging Daniel Bryan, Triple H, Randy Orton or Dave Batista back out of their celebration, out to the ring, and pinning them on top of the already vanquished Undertaker and leaving Wrestlemania 30 not only as the man who broke the streak but the man who leaves as the Undisputed WWE World Heavyweight Champion. But that's just my vision. I don't know if it's shared by others."
Does he think CM Punk will be back in a WWE ring soon?
"You know, there were only three people in the room that night, and that was CM Punk, Vince McMahon and Triple H, and none of the three have talked about it. So whether CM Punk will ever or won't ever appear in WWE again is truly only known by the three people that were in the room on that given evening. Anything else that is stated about it is merely speculation."
