In his latest blog entry, Jim Ross commented on Paul Heyman’s return to Raw last Monday night. Here’s what he had to say:

“Paul Heyman’s return to Raw Monday night was a pleasant surprise. Heyman’s skills help add star power to the WWE’s franchise broadcast and his role of representing Brock Lesnar is art imitating life to some degree.”

“Heyman’s promo was effective because Paul wasn’t playing a character that he did not ‘feel’ but instead was simply being himself…amplified. The promo was also ‘money’ because Heyman has a legit, emotional investment in the topic on which he addressed.”

“Bottom line is that all talents of the genre who are called upon to speak will do significantly better when being themselves rather than being someone that they aren’t.”
