Paul Heyman on Brock Lesnar beating the streak, his 'shoot' comments on Raw, Cesaro (Video)

Paul E. Dangerously, back at it again.

On the comments he made about Michael Cole and Jerry Lawler on Monday Night Raw:

"What are you, a little girl? You take this to heart? I owe you an apology. I'm sorry. I shouldn't have said that about you and Jerry Lawler. I should have lied, which is my reputation anyway. It's okay. You're going to be fine. You're a great announcer. John Layfield is going to carry you through the broadcast. You're good. You can do this interview, I believe you in. You've gotta be kidding me!"

On Brock Lesnar beating Undertaker's streak at WrestleMania 30:

"I believed Brock Lesnar could do it. Brock Lesnar believed Brock Lesnar could do it. And deep in his dark heart of hearts the Undertaker knew Brock Lesnar could do it. And it's exactly what Brock Lesnar did. Brock Lesnar conquered the streak because that's who Brock is; he is a conquerer, and he will conquer everything that is put in front of him."

On Cesaro becoming the next Paul Heyman Guy:

"Why Cesaro? Because Cesaro is the next great commodity in WWE. If I choose to place Cesaro into the title picture, he is the next WWE world heavyweight champion. If I choose for Cesaro to deliver to me the Intercontinental title, he is the next Intercontinental champion. If there's someone I want taken out of the picture to ease Brock's path, that person shall be taken out of the picture. Cesaro is the most capable athlete in WWE to see through any vision that I might have. He can implement any strategy better than any superstar in that locker room. He is truly, as Brock was in 2002, the next big thing. Doubt me. No, please, go ahead. I see that look in your eye. Doubt me. I told you Brock Lesnar was going to break the streak. I said it wasn't a prediction, it was a spoiler. You doubted me, it happened. Cesaro is the next great commodity in sports entertainment. Doubt me. My prediction for Cesaro is that Cesaro's future is in my hands, which means the future of WWE is in Cesaro's hands. Doubt me. Go ahead. Doubt me."

Not unlike Renee Young, Michael Cole did not take the opportunity to simply respond with: "Curtis Axel."

Maybe next time.
