WWE's website recently teased the fact that Paul Heyman may be looking to add a third client to his collection. With CM Pun reportedly on the shelf until Summer Slam and Brock Lesnar being a "part timer", I could see the logic in finding a new Paul Heyman Guy. I feel like Heyman is one of the best things about the WWE right now, so more TV time with him would not be a bad thing.
So who exactly should become the next client. After reviewing the roster of superstars, I've come up with a few ideas. Keep in mind, I don't watch much (actually any) NXT, so I can't really judge the talent there, other than the few guys I've seen on independent shows and in other companies. For that reason, I'm going to stick to the current roster of superstars.
Don't laugh at this one, as I'm serious. I think it makes sense for Zack Ryder to be a Paul Heyman Guy. I'll admit I got caught up in the Ryder Mania hype a couple years back. Heck, I even submitted four different Broski of the Week videos before finally being picked for Episode 22. Watch my submission here...
I realize the three choices have been guys who have struggled to gain real traction in the WWE. But that's exactly what Heyman needs in a client and what the WWE needs in terms of cultivating new talent. Part time guys like Lesnar, Triple H, and the Undertaker were great years ago, but it is truly time for the WWE to develop that next generation of talent and Paul Heyman is the right guy to help lead that charge.
