Paul Heyman Believes Seth Rollins Is WWE’s Next Big ‘Breakout Rebel’

Published

on

When it comes to WWE rebels, there have been some legendary ones such as ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin, Shawn Michaels and Triple H during their time together as Degeneration X (the original runs, pre-2005) and CM Punk, and WWE manager Paul Heyman shared his thoughts about who the next big rebel in WWE could be.

Heyman answered the question posed by a fan in the audience during Friday’s ‘Cheap Heat Live’ at New York’s Sony Hall theatre, and he picked one superstar in particular who fits the bill, in his mind.

“Seth Rollins. Seth Rollins, because he continuously comes up with moves that are politically incorrect and they have to tell him to stop doing them but they become so popular that they end up saying to him ‘alright go ahead, we’ll deal with it, go do it.’”

“It’s because he’s innovative, and he rebels against the system that tries to be politically correct, and he continues to be politically incorrect, and when he came up with the saying of ‘Burn it Down,’ he was being honest about what he thought would be the constraints of what was being put on him, that he’s going to break through that, and do things his way,3 and innovate a style that you can only see in a Seth Rollins match.”

Malakai Black

Malakai Black’s time in AEW is at an end, as he has received a conditional release this week after he requested a full release earlier this year, and now Black will be officially pulled from upcoming appearances.

Black was scheduled for the upcoming Northeast Wrestling show on Friday where he was set to face Matt Taven. Jay Lethal and Enzo Amore, but the promotion announced that Black was pulled from the event due to “health issues”.

AEW President Tony Khan stated earlier this summer that Black “has almost five years left on his deal. I wouldn’t expect him going anywhere anytime soon.” However, his release likely came with a non-compete clause to prevent him from jumping back to WWE, where he is likely heading once his personal issues are addressed.

CM Punk

CM Punk will be out of action for considerable time, and it may also mark an end to his run in AEW.

After defeating Jon Moxley to reclaim the AEW World Championship, Punk made some harsh comments during the post-event media scrum that prompted a backstage altercation involving AEW superstars The Young Bucks and Kenny Omega, who have since been suspended.

Punk was injured during his match with Moxley, and while he may be out for considerable time, he also could be ultimately fired from the company. AEW stripped Punk of the World Championship on Wednesday’s edition of AEW Dynamite.

“Punk’s out for eight months, or whatever it’s going to be, six months/eight months, whatever” according to Dave Meltzer on Wrestling Observer Radio. “If he’s not let go, and a lot of people don’t want him back.”
