The Outrageous Goals Paul Heyman Still Has In WWE

Paul Heyman on the mic on WWE Raw

Despite a career spanning decades, Paul Heyman says you ain’t seen nothing yet.

On March 4th, Paul Heyman was announced as the first inductee in the WWE Hall of Fame Class of 2024.

Heyman broke into the wrestling business in the late 1970’s at the age of only 13, working as a photographer and running his own newsletter. He first entered the spotlight in 1987 as a manager on the independent scene before quickly moving onto more established companies like Championship Wrestling from Florida and the CWA, before moving to JCP which eventually became WCW.

In the mid-1990s, Heyman was fired from WCW and joined Eastern Championship Wrestling, where he soon took charge of the creative direction of the company and re-christened it Extreme Championship Wrestling. The boundary-pushing promotion set the template for a resurgence of professional wrestling as WCW and WWE followed in their footsteps to create more risque content – although not going as far as Heyman’s promotion.

After ECW folded in 2001, Heyman took on both onscreen and offscreen roles in WWE. He became best known for managing the likes of Brock Lesnar, CM Punk and Roman Reigns.

Despite having one of the most colourful careers in wrestling, though, Heyman says he’s just getting started.

“You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” – Paul Heyman On His WWE Career

Speaking to the New York Post about his Hall of Fame induction, Heyman admitted it had taken him decades to “figure this business out,” and claimed he was just getting started.

“It’s taken me all these decades to figure this business out and the art of presentation to an audience, so while I hate to use the old cliche of, ‘You ain’t seen nothing yet, and I’m just getting started,’ … You ain’t seen nothing yet, and I’m just getting started.

He went on to make a bizarre things he still wants to do in the business, including being involved in WrestleMania in Cuba, the moon, and even Mars.

“I don’t want a lifetime achievement award when I’m not done achieving things. I still have a lot of other work I want to do in this industry. I want to be involved in the first main event of WrestleMania in Havana, or on the moon, or on Mars when Elon Musk colonizes it. These are things that are going to happen in the future and I desperately want to be a part of it.”

Since the announcement of his Hall of Fame induction, many wrestling stars have paid tribute to The Wise Man, with one AEW announcer crediting Paul Heyman with getting him where he is today.
