Paul Heyman Tells Funny Behind-The-Scenes Story About Dusty Rhodes

Home / Paul Heyman Tells Funny Behind-The-Scenes Story About Dusty Rhodes

Paul Heyman spoke with FOX Sports’ “The Buzz” recently and shared a story, which he partially told on his WWE DVD, about sneaking into a NWA production meeting during the 1980s.

“I snuck in early, sat in the back row with a baseball hat on so I wouldn’t get noticed, because I wanted to learn. I was 18 years old,” said Heyman.

After that, Heyman revealed that he ended up getting caught sneaking into the meetings by the late WWE Hall Of Famer Dusty Rhodes.

“Yes, he noticed me and called me outside the room. He said ‘what are you doing here?’ and I said ‘I’m here to learn from you.’ He said ‘You picked the right person, because I’m a super genius baby,'” Heyman said. “He told me to go back in the room. He went to the bathroom, and then came back and continued the production meeting.”

Eventually, Dusty Rhodes approached Heyman later in the day and asked him what he learned from sitting in on the meeting.

“I noticed the way you formatted the show. He liked it and said the next time I was at one of the events to feel free to join his production meetings. I wasn’t there all the time because they weren’t based out of New York, and I was. But I would try to make it any time they had a pay-per-view or TV. I grabbed the bull by the horns and ended up sitting in the front row,” said Heyman.
