Paul Heyman has posted an all new, exclusive blog concerning Brock Lesnar’s recent illness and the direction of UFC going forward. The blog is a must read for old-school ECW fans, in my opinion, as Heyman not only likens Dana White’s current situation to his days of running ECW, but Heyman goes on to applaud White for his "branding" of UFC. Below is a key excerpt from the article, and you can read the entire blog if you CLICK HERE.
"When I owned and ran Extreme Championship Wrestling, I used to joke about my perception of the real job behind the job title. I always told my staff that my job was a firefighter. I spent half my time putting out fires. New Jack stabbed somebody. The Dudleys beat up 40 people in a National Guard Armony riot, and everyone’s suing. Sabu missed his flight or wanted to take a booking in Outer Kalakalakaville because the overseas promoter wanted an "Extreme Death Match" and would pay him a lot of money, someone didn’t get their video tape and was complaining to the Better Business Bureau, you name it. Always a problem. Ten problems an hour. Mick Foley didn’t want more money, he wanted to be in the show open for 1 more clip, or 3 more seconds. Raven thought Tommy Dreamer should beat him and then turn heel. Chris Candido and Tammy had an idea. Eric Bischoff was offering someone a couple of hundred grand to jump. Vince McMahon wanted to do more business, but the price was to lose our identity. And oh yeah, New Jack stabbed another person because by this time in the day, it was already 11am."
