And that whole 'see-saws in Louisville' comment by Heyman is of the same bent. I wonder if the reason he's so despised by some people is that whole rape allegation.
A.) So Ric Rude, Paul Heyman and a few others don't like him and he's not a popular man?
B.) Are you basing Rude's dislike for Lawler on Lawler's ECW invasion angle? Uhhh you do know that was to get Lawler (who was being cheered by ECW fans on camera) over as a heel? Never heard there was legit heat there.
As far as the other guys who despised Lawler...I can think of a few like Doug Gilbert, and Jamie Dundee both of whom were second generation stars (who had their own demons) who were never in shape and sat back and expected Lawler to give them a top spot because of their daddy. He's despised by some people because he had the book. When you have the book naturally some people are not going to like you.
Funny thing about this post is that Heyman is one of the most despised men in the business. There are very few guys who have held any position of power who do not have some people who do not like them.
The whole rape allegation which was reported heavily down here was an admited blackmail attempt....which guys like Heyman chose to ignore for comedic purposes.
