Paul Heyman: If Someone Comes Along Who Is Better For Roman Reigns & WWE, Give Them My Gig

Heyman has been with Reigns since last August

Paul Heyman believes he is currently doing the biggest work of his career with WWE and says he only wants to continue as Roman Reigns' special counsel so long as he is the best man for the job.

Heyman has been aligned with Reigns since last August and has served at The Head Of The Table's behest on Friday Night SmackDown, helping Reigns to become the biggest and most dominant star in WWE.

The special counsel believes he has 'redefined the medium' of what it means to manage a WWE superstar but knows he needs to defend his position.

Speaking to Ryan Satin on Out of Character, Heyman said: "I can't stand watching myself even with the early run with Roman. This is the highest level I can be. I consider this more accountability, more responsibility, a bigger platform, a bigger job than when I was the executive director of Raw.

"If you brought me back last August and put the Universal and WWE Championships on me - not that I'd be a good champion, because I wouldn't be - it wouldn't be as big as what I'm doing with Roman. This is the biggest thing I can do. I am attached to the hip of the undisputed number one superstar in not only WWE, but all of sports entertainment. I'm working with him, I assure you, as much behind the scenes as I do on camera. This is a legit, professional, collaborative effort.

"I only want this gig as long as I'm the man for it. As long as I'm the best for it. If there is someone who comes along that would serve Roman Reigns better, serve the character Roman Reigns better, serve the marketing of Roman Reigns better, serve the intellectual property of Roman Reigns better, serve WWE better in this capacity, I want them to have the gig. I don't ever want to be second best at anything, I just don't.

"This, I can do, and I dare say I do it better than anybody else. I have redefined the medium from manager to advocate to special counsel. That may be me drinking my own kool-aid, but it tastes good at the moment. I'm challenged every day to be even better. If my promo tomorrow is not better than my promo today and my promo two days from now isn't better than my promo tomorrow, I'm not progressing, I'm not getting better, throw me out the door and get rid of me. It's time for me to go.

"The whole point is to be better tomorrow. Someone else wants this gig. A lot of people want this gig. If you don't want this gig, you are out of your mind because this is the gig to have. I have to defend it."
