In one of the episodes of Grilling Jr, Jim Ross recalled Vince McMahon made fun of him and Paul Heyman. He shared the story about Mr. McMahon taking about Heyman’s wardrobe.

Ross said, “I think he thought some of the same things for Paul, cheap suits, you know. Paul is a much better dresser now than he was then. I saw fisher, he was on McMahon’s plane the other. He named all the clothing he (Paul Heyman) was wearing, the name and brand stuff. Let me promise you, in 1997, he was going to a either men’s warehouse, not the best store.”

The voice of wrestling added, “He was going to, what’s the other place, the coat place? Burlington coat factory. So I think Vince, it’s Vince, he kind of made fun of Paul behind his back, but we all knew that he’s a smart son of a gun man. He still is.”

Furthermore, Ross added irrespective of whatever fun McMahon made of Roman Reigns’ Special Counsel, he knew Heyman was the smartest guy in the room. 

The current AEW commentator compared Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman’s WWE careers. He talked about how they got a job on RAW and SmackDown after Mr. McMahon purchased their promotions. Ross called Bischoff and Heyman ‘people with great ideas.’
