He knows what to look for. There are certain people in wrestling who seem to have an eye for talent. That is the kind of thing that you can’t teach and someone who has the talent is incredibly valuable. Some of the people who have this ability are going to be listened to more than others and that has given them quite the level of influence. Hopefully a recent suggestion from one of them is given some attention, because it sounds rather accurate.
Paul Heyman is one of the most influential names in modern wrestling history. In addition to everything that he did with ECW, Heyman has a history of seeing untapped potential in stars and seeing what he can mold them into. While he might not be as hands on today, his word still means something and now someone else has caught his eye in a rather positive way.
This is some high praise. Check out who Heyman praised rather extensively:
During the most recent edition of Talking Smack, Heyman told Bianca Belair that she is the future of the WWE women’s division. Heyman praised Belair’s athletic abilities and felt that no one can do what she can do in the ring. He also compared her to the Street Profits, who Heyman has praised before. Belair has been on the main roster since just after WrestleMania 36 and was moved to SmackDown during the WWE Draft.
Opinion: That is quite the accolades and the more I see of Belair, the more I think that Heyman is right here. Belair can do things in the ring that no one else can approach and if she can develop the microphone skills and character to back it up, she could be a major star in the future. You can’t ignore that kind of athleticism and Belair is becoming a bigger star week to week.
What do you think of Belair? How far can she go in WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
