— Paul Heyman has posted his latest blog entry at The UK Sun website, which can be read here. While Heyman has been very critical of WWE recently, this week he raves about last night’s Raw, who he sees as the future of WWE and more. Heyman writes, “One of the greatest things about pro wrestling — or sports entertainment, if you insist — is that when it clicks, when it’s done correctly, and when the audience is “into it”, there is nothing like it in the world. World Wrestling Entertainment presented Monday Night Raw from Toronto, Canada this week, and it was just one of those nights when, if you’re a fan, this is everything you could ask for.”
