Backstage News On Triple H’s Mayweather Appearance, Heyman



- There was a ton of discussion within WWE about Triple H accompanying Floyd Mayweather to the ring last weekend in Las Vegas. Most of the talk came from the fact that CM Punk wasn’t allowed to accompany UFC fighter Chael Sonnen to the octagon a few months ago in Chicago.

As previously reported, part of the reason why Punk wasn’t allowed to appear at the UFC show was because WWE felt nobody would acknowledge Punk as a cornerman and it would hurt Punk’s perceived star power. Triple H accompanied Mayweather to the ring and outside of wrestling sites and WWE’s own website, he didn’t get much mainstream attention at all.

- Paul Heyman wrote the following on Twitter about WWE Superstars Jimmy and Jey Uso:

“Amazing seeing @WWEusos … remember, I haven’t been around for half a decade … The last time I saw these two, they were little kids doing splashes off the top rope in the Omni before the show when I managed their Dad. Yes, that makes me old, but I recognize TALENT. @WWEusos are talented. Time for these young Samoans to eat up the competition!”

- Former WWE and current ROH announcer Kevin Kelly turns 45 years old today.
