"Late night YouTube watching was a bad idea. So many boys pretending to be professional wrstlers. A pair of trunks and a ring don't make you a wrestler."
- Mike Bennett bashing fans who are amateur wrestlers
Since every wrestling fan on the planet is curious about CM Punk leaving WWE, TNA has decided to take advantage of the situation by posting several of his matches for free on their YouTube account this week. Punk worked for the company during their early years.
To add even further interest in the story line, Paul Heyman has revealed that he has paid the $10,000 fine for Brock Lesnar. He is selling the Wrestlemania 30 match by letting people know that his client will be allowed to be as brutal as he wishes to be.
Aside from being utilized to help promote Brock Lesnar, who works a limited schedule, there does not appear to be much of a story line for Paul Heyman backstage. After being split apart from Curtis Axel and Ryback, management hasn't shown an interest in adding new guys for the former ECW owner to work with.
WWE has started teasing the upcoming release of the Paul Heyman DVD, which will be called The Paul Heyman story. The company plans on making the documentary of the former ECW owner available to the public some time in August of this year.

Paul Heyman is expected to make his return appearance on Monday Night Raw this week. Those rumors heated up further over the weekend when it was mentioned that Brock Lesnar was supposed to show up on WWE television this week as well.
"Bully Ray vs. CM Punk would be the match. Paul Heyman has told me directly that me and Punk standing across from one another with a microphone in our hands would be deadly. Given the opportunity to have absolutely no restrictions on what we'd say and to just go at it, you'd be looking at the two guys who can spit venom better than anybody else out there in the industry. And I know we could back it up in the ring."
Through Twitter, Paul Heyman teased that his client, Brock Lesnar, could be coming back to WWE soon to challenge Randy Orton for both championship belts. The former UFC Champion is rumored to be returning by the Royal Rumble.
"I'm kind of an underground Paul Heyman girl and he is what really inspired the ditsy character, he really inspired me to do the things that I did at WWE. I'm an admirer of his work, I think what he has done with so many guys and throughout ECW was incredible. When I was in OVW I just watched him as he helped CM Punk every day, Punk was already incredible but then Paul Heyman kind of pushed him over the edge and gave him that opportunity on ECW to be who he is today."
While the company was discussing ideas on a potential new client for Paul Heyman, it now appears that WWE will hold off on bringing the ECW founder back into the mix at the Royal Rumble, where Brock Lesnar is rumored to be returning.
