PLAYERS: Paul Heyman
CM Punk and Paul Heyman recently spoke with the New York Post. Here are some highlights from their interview. Everyone is talking about the video that surfaced earlier this month between you and Stone Cold Steve Austin. Were you guys in character or was there genuine disagreement between you guys? Punk: I am a character, I don’t play a character, and the same can be said for Steve. I think there is a mutual respect, I’m not positive we get along in the world we’re in. Texas Rattlesnake, beer-drinking son of a gun and I’m the straight edge kid from Chicago. We just come from two different worlds. For all of our differences, we’re very similar. I don’t think he’s backing down from anything, and I’m not, so you put the two of us in the room [and that’s what you get]. I think that was the first time the world has seen what it’s like when CM Punk and Stone Cold Steve Austin are in a room together. The big selling point of this game is the inclusion of the Attitude Era. Do you think that it is disrespectful to today’s superstars, including Punk? Heyman: I do think it’s disrespectful, and here’s why. As with anything else in life, you have to constantly re-invent yourself. I don’t think it’s any secret that the Attitude Era was spawned from the ECW days, and as the architect of the ECW experience, I can tell you that the 1990s are dead. That means that the extreme concept, the Attitude Era has run its course. The reason why it is in this game today is so that people can compare the modern era to the Attitude experience. The WWE can continue to look on the Attitude Era as its glory days and ignore the magnificent performances that are being delivered every week by their current reigning, defending WWE Champion who proclaims himself to be the best in the world and with good reason, because he is. These people who are hanging onto the past need to understand that by doing that they are not allowing the audience to sink into the future.
