Having worked closely with Triple H as a key member of the Bloodline storyline, Heyman is now praising the former WWE World Champion as someone who allows performers to accentuate their positives rather than trying to force them to conform to a vision of what a WWE Superstar is.

"For a long time, and this is something that Paul Levesque has truly addressed as the head of creative in WWE. For a long time, so many in this industry wanted the performers to conform to their vision instead of creative people looking at the performers and saying, ‘I can tap into that.’ If you were right handed and I’m envisioning your character as a leftie, then the way the business has been run for a while, I’d be sending you to the gym going, ‘You gotta work on your left hand,’ instead of, ‘I can make this guy the best right hander in the business’ because that’s what you are, a right hander. Everyone in this business was trying to make characters and personas and people conformed to their vision instead of their vision being about what greatness the people themselves offered," said Heyman to NBC Sports Philadelphia.
