On a recent edition of his “Oh You Didn’t Know?” podcast, WWE Hall of Famer Brian “Road Dogg” James lavished praise on Paul Heyman, who celebrated his birthday yesterday, turning 58 years old.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:


On Paul Heyman turning 58: “He looks freaking great. He’s on top of his game. Paul Heyman, happy birthday to you, sir. You look great, you smell terrific, and congratulations on all your success.”

On ranking Heyman on the Mt. Rushmore of wrestling managers: “A hundred percent. Yeah, not even questionable. I think a lot of people say that about themselves. He may be right. Me and Paul have a great relationship. I’m not saying one way or another, but I think his body of work speaks for itself, and the longevity speaks to how good he is at it. I don’t know what else to say besides he’s definitely on the Mount Rushmore thing. The other three are debatable, but I don’t think he is.”

On how Heyman “smells”: “Like fine leather. Mahogany. Maybe cherry mahogany and a bit of lilac. It’s rich.”

During a recent appearance on the “Battleground Podcast,” Matt Cardona reflected on the passings of WWE Hall of Famer Terry Funk and former Universal Champion Bray Wyatt.

You can check out some highlights from the podcast below:

On the legacy of Terry Funk: “You can’t even measure the things they’ve done and the legacy they’re leaving behind. Terry Funk — you know this whole GCW and indie run [of mine] … listen, I’m not comparing myself to Terry Funk by any means, but I definitely look at him for some inspiration. For the things he did for ECW and the locker room there — I’d like to do half of that, a quarter of that, for GCW and that locker room.”

On the loss of Bray Wyatt: “As for Bray, man, it’s still shocking and so sad. I worked with Bray so many times, whether it was during his FCW call-up [when] he was on the road. I never did The Fiend stuff — he was always way higher than me on the card, but he was such a great guy in and out of the ring.”

On crossing paths with Wyatt several months ago while traveling: “We just chitchatted for a second and [shared] a big hug, and we’re not even that great of buddies, but that’s just the type of guy he is — just a friendly guy, a happy guy, and man, what a loss. My thoughts are with his family at this time … it’s horrible.”
