    Was going to post the same thing. Rock can get a crowd going with jokes and insults, Heyman can get himself, his client, and their opponent legit heat.

    Heyman got people to cheer Jim Cornette.

    The rock

    I am not a fan of Paul or his promos. I really hated him on commentary in 2001. He is super cringe. Could not wait for the king to come back

    I think Heyman deserves a lot of love though.

    That fat fucker is just good at the business.

    Of those two, I'm going with Heyman.

    Rock could only go one way. Like Kevin Owens, he was constantly getting himself over with comedy even as a heel.

    Heyman could be the "annoying New York city slicker Jew" to rile up the Southern crowds, the bitter failure to lead The Invasion, or a sniveling weasel to showcase Brock or Roman as alpha. And, when working heel, most of his comedy came at his expense and not the other talents.

    Heyman is great and with a wrestler he’s big money. But just the possibility of Rock speaking has put more butts in seats and in front of tv than Heyman ever has. Add Rock wrestling and that’s more money than Heyman+Lesnar/Reigns. Bit like comparing a Ferrari and a Porsche.
