Hey all. Welcome to the debut of Zeus Reviews on PWPop. I’m Tom Bente, but most of you might know me as “Zeus”. These reviews are going to be geared toward the things that I check out. The occasional Indy show, WWE Documentaries, Games, who knows? Only time will tell.

Paul Heyman has been a pretty large part of wrestling for as long as I can remember, but never really knew why he was there. I had always known about his days in ECW, and WWE but hadn’t figured out what was happening in the space between. Within the first 3 minutes this DVD will have you hooked.

The production value, and the theme of the film was something that I haven’t seen in any WWE Movie to date. All of the backgrounds match. They also use a clip from another wrestling documentary, that I believe was “Beyond The Ring”. The takeaway I got from it, was that they took the CM Punk template and brought it up to the next level.

My most favorite thing about it was that they didn’t only cover Paul’s life in the wrestling business, or his persona but they went over his life. Inside the ring and out. Even though I wasn’t around when ECW was in its’ prime, I was learning about the issues they had, so it certainly shows how much re-written history is in this DVD.

It shows footage right up until Lesnar snapped the streak, but we never got any word from Paul on it which was a huge disappointment to me. He didn’t go into detail about his time with Punk either. Maybe that’s just something that interested me, but I would have loved to have heard what it meant to him, working with Punk when he wasn’t needed to be a mouthpiece.

This documentary would have been fantastic if it had ended only covering his childhood. Paul Heyman is one of the greatest storytellers I’ve ever heard (Maybe even better than Cornette) and with this Documentary you get to hear him tell one of the greatest stories for nearly 2 hours. “Ladies and Gentlemen, My Name is Paul Heyman” is my most favorite WWE Documentary produced thus far, and it’s something every Paul Heyman guy and gal need in their collection. If we’re giving it a rating, I’ve got to give it a 5/5 stars. I’ve seen it 3 times in the process of making this review, and the reason it hasn’t been completed sooner is because I get sucked back in with Paul E’s stories even though I’ve heard them before. Hopefully it’s only a matter of time before it’s on the Network, but I wouldn’t count on it. Go, pick it up now.
