Watch: A Marriage Proposal Interrupts WWE Segment, Paul Heyman Responds Brilliantly

Paul Heyman is widely recognised as the absolute master on the mic when it comes to WWE, and he demonstrated his unmatched verbal abilities on Raw last night.

When the former founding father of the now defunct ECW brand is speaking, he commands your attention and few can match his conviction. He could sell snow to the eskimos.

But on last night's show in Atlanta, Georgia, while Heyman, Brock Lesnar's advocate, was informing us how his client will decimate WWE champion AJ Styles at Survivor Series, interrupted by a marriage proposal in the crowd.


Fans hijacking the show, or specifically marriage proposals, can be a regular occurrence at WWE events, but some deal with it better than others. It's clearly not in the script, so from time to time it can throw performers off guard and they suffer as a result.

However, we all know that Paul Heyman is a one of a kind individual and last night's shenanigans did not affect him in the slightest.

As Heyman was preaching, a fan in the crowd successfully proposed to his girlfriend in the crowd, prompting loud chants of "She said Yes!" from the raucous crowd in attendance at the Philips Centre.

Heyman would then respond by linking up back to Lesnar and how much of a beast he is, saying: "Just so you know, she only said yes because she's never been up close to a beast like BROOOOOOCK LESNAAAAAR!"

He wasn't finished there though, adding: "Just so you know, interrupting my promo is like stepping into the ring with Brock Lesnar. You ain't got a chance!"

The former Smackdown General Manager would then continue building up the dream match between Styles and Lesnar as though nothing had happened, proving what a top professional he is. Here's what Twitter made of his brilliant handling of the proposal:

A lesson to all: never try and upstage Paul Heyman and Brock Lesnar. You won't get far...
