Vince McMahon’s influence drives the WWE from the top.
Heyman responded with his thoughts on McMahon’s public perception.
Heyman thinks those celebrating that McMahon is no longer in creative control are “delusional in their opinions of what the company is or used to be.”
“I think there is a locker room and an office filled with fabulously wealthy people thanks to the 22 hour work day of Vince McMahon for the past 40 years. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about Vince McMahon. What a hypocrite I would be to say anything less than extraordinarily complimentary (things) about that man. His work ethic, his willingness to put in 20, 22 hours a day, every day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, for 40 years is why we are all fabulously wealthy. He’ll never get the credit or understanding that he truly deserves and he earned,”
How much did Paul Heyman sell ECW for?
Paul went on to sell ECW, an already successful company that had
been made popular during the Attitude Era,
to Vince McMahon for barely anything. Rather than Vince paying Paul money for the company,
Vince had to pay off the debts of ECW in order to own it.
Did Vince McMahon buy ECW?
On April 1, 2001, Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) collapsed leaving the World Wrestling Federation as the only major wrestling organization. The WWE acquired the assets of ECW on January 28th, 2003.
While the current state of Vince McMahon’s retirement is not due to the “wealth” of his employees, he has been accused of sexual misconduct, which lead to his retirement. Heyman is now the manager for The Bloodline, as well as Roman Reigns.
