WWE Payback 2014 Blu-ray Review

WWE Ladies And Gentlemen, My Name Is Paul Heyman Blu-ray Review

Modern audiences will know him best for being the advocate for Brock Lesnar and CM Punk amongst others. There’s no doubt that Heyman’s a guy that has had his fingers in many pies over the last nearly three decades – and I was very surprised...
