Paul Heyman Names Stephanie McMahon As Favourite WWE Opponent On The Microphone
Heyman loves sparring with McMahon on the mic
Paul Heyman has named Stephanie McMahon as his favourite person in WWE to test his wits and ability out with on a microphone.
Heyman is widely credited as one of the very best talkers in professional wrestling over the past 25 years, and has created numerous memorable moments in promos during his time in WWE alongside Brock Lesnar, CM Punk and most recently Roman Reigns.
The special counsel to the Universal Champion has now named WWE's Chief Brand Officer as his favourite person to spar with in WWE promos because of how invested in her character she is.
Speaking with Ryan Satin on the Out Of Character Podcast, Heyman said: "She is very real out there. She is authentic and whether she knows what you're going to say, or not know what you're going to say, she is three steps ahead at all times. So, if you're not four steps ahead, you're playing catch up with her.
"She's so invested in the character. Just the little nuances that she does. The way that she can stare you down and hold back the smile, she's a very underrated performer and an interesting, intriguing, and challenging person to stand across the ring with microphones in your hand. It can go different ways really quickly with Stephanie."
