Paul E. Dangerously
 
There is no doubt that Heyman is one of the greatest promo guys in history. Most of the time you read about Heyman on the internet it's about his time in ECW. However, as I am not really a fan of the original ECW, it should be noted that (in my opinion) Heyman was great in his period in AWA/NWA(WCW) as Paul E. Dangerously. Just look at this promo http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qAqtySYNGZ8 . What is your opinion on Paul E. Dangerously?

Not his WCW days but I feel he is underrated as a commentator, his time from after Wrestlemania x7 to just about the Survivor Series of that year was amazing, his chemistry and quick lines with JR are much better than Lawler in his prime during the Attitude Era's hay-day.

I take JR and Heyman's commentary anytime over commentary with Jerry "the queen" Lawler

1991 and 1992 are two of my all time favorite years in wrestling as i loved both WWE and WCW at that time and Paul Heyman leading The Dangerous Alliance will always stand out to me from that period. From the origins at Halloween Havoc with Rick Rude debuting and then The Enforcers slamming "breaking" the arm of Barry Windham and then that great promo by Paul Heyman declaring he would get revenge on WCW i was instantly hooked.

I grew up a fan of NWA/JCP/WCW over WWE and only began watching WWE on a regular basis sometime in early 1991 although i'd always had their PPV's bought for me on video so i'd watched WWE as far back as 1988. I made a thread not too long ago in which i stated The Dangerous Alliance are the most underrated stable in history and the talent they had in Rick Rude, Steve Austin, Bobby Eaton, Arn Anderson, Larry Zbysko and Madusa was as great as any stable has ever had before or after in my opinion.

Reading one of JR's blogs the other day made me go back and watch a lot of Paul Heyman promos as he said he believes Paul Heyman to be one of the greatest heel mic workers of all time, i had already though similar but just wanted to watch a few older promos as it's rare to see a great heel promo these days. You can see as far back as when he was doing commentary with Jim Ross you could see he was a great talker although i missed his early managing days so didn't see anything of him prior to his commentary days.

For anyone wanting to see a truly great heel mic worker as a manager outside of Bobby Heenan then i would say go and watch WCW from Halloween Havoc in 1991 all the way through to Halloween Havoc in 1992 which was when The Dangerous Alliance were around and at their best to see Paul Heyman at work. He added a lot to the feuds The Dangerous Alliance had with Sting, Ricky Steamboat, Dustin Rhodes, Barry Windham and Nikita Koloff and i think Stone Cold Steve Austin learnt a lot about mic work from Paul Heyman during that time.

Yes, as a colour commentator, Heyman was very entertaining together with JR.

I've always liked Heyman. The guy has done a lot of good in the wrestling business. Really wish the WWE would make him a permanent fixture on their programming and make him a head booker.

I wish Heyman had the financial support that WWE does when he ran ECW. Guy always had creative ideas but tried to do too much with too little funds.

I don't think Heyman was ever used right before he went to ECW. He did some decent stuff but he could have done so much more. I think that is why he was so bitter towards WCW when he was running ECW. They never gave him the chance he believed he deserved.

Dangerous Alliance was the best stable I've ever seen. He was great in the Memphis territory too when he was just starting out. All of this before he went to ECW and became popular. Dangerously and Ross have always have amazing chemistry even if they probably do hate each other just a bit.
