Let’s cut to the chase, this chap is possibly one of the greatest managers in wrestling history if not the greatest. He’s also a bona fide genius for coming up with storylines and angles for every company he has worked for. This is also the first non-wrestler documentary from WWE in some time and they have crammed a lot of history into this package.
Firstly, there is your normal WWE documentary covering Heyman’s beginnings, his time in NWA/WCW, ECW, running OVW (WWE’s then developmental territory) and finally the WWE. There are plenty of stories from the man himself as well as interviews from the likes of Mick Foley, Stephanie McMahon and Raven. Also we get plenty of footage of Heyman in his ‘Paul E. Dangerously’ persona complete with huge mobile phone and frightening mullet.
On the other discs (and extra blu-ray footage) there are amongst other material archive footage on the AWA days, The Dangerous Alliance faction, lots of ECW stuff and some bits with Lesnar, Mr McMahon and Punk.
It’s a terrific comprehensive package and if you want to know more of Paul’s days in New York’s Studio 54 nightclub go and download Chris Jericho’s recent podcast with him (and Edge). Very good overall and a credit for WWE doing such a grand release considering how in the past Paul has rubbed them up the wrong way. Remember not all creative wrestling legends are called McMahon.
