Paul Heyman calls out NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley for imitating Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns
WWE Undisputed Universal Champion Roman Reigns has become one of the biggest stars of sports entertainment and has been acknowledged by several sports personalities around the globe.
Now it seems that NBA Hall of Famer Charles Barkley acknowledges Roman Reigns too, which intimidates his special counsel Paul Heyman. Last night on Inside the NBA, Charles Barkley decided to name drop both AEW’s Chris Jericho and WWE Superstar Roman reigns before imitating The Heaf of the Table.
Barkley also told Ernie Johnson to acknowledge him. Paul Heyman quickly responded to it and took a shot at Barkley’s imitation on social media.
Paul Heyman allegedly blocked the wrestling legend from appearing in WWE
Former WWE Superstar Sabu recently spoke on WSI’s James Romero. He said that Paul Heyman was responsible for his omission from the WWE vs WCW/ECW Invasion storyline in 2001.
Sabu even said WWE Chairmen Vince McMahon put Heyman in charge for the Invasion angle.
“No [nobody reached out in 2001], I was already on bad terms with Paul at the time,” Sabu said. “Vince was talking to Paul [to recruit former ECW stars]. He wasn’t talking to me. He [Heyman] just blocked me. I don’t blame him. I don’t have hard feelings for him anymore. I don’t want to be mad.” [2:24-2:43]
Sabu was one of the biggest superstars between 1993 and 2000; he is a former two-time ECW World Heavyweight Champion. He later worked for WWE between 2006 and 2007 as part of revamped ECW brand.
