Wrestling Career Highlights::
  • Made his indy circut debut in 1987 as a manager, which is one aspect of his career that he has been known for; Heyman has managed names such as Tommy Rich, Austin Idol, Midnight Express, Sabu, Tommy Dreamer, Arn Anderson, Taz, The Big Show, Kurt Angle, Rob Van Dam, Matt Morgan, Brock Lesnar, the Dudley Boyz, and CM Punk
  • Best known as the head booker for Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) in the early 90s-early 2000s, which was founded by Tod Gordon. Heyman was eventually sold the company in 1995. The company became an alternative to WWE and WCW at the time with its showcase of innovative wrestling, such as lucha libre and hardcore wrestling. This was much in part due to Heyman's persisting to Gordon that traditional wrestling, like WWE and TNA, was a thing of the past
  • While ECW entered bankruptcy in 2001, Heyman is credited for the risque wrestling style that he introduced during his work in the company, which many believed paved the way for WWE's "Attitude" era in the late 90s
  • Heyman immediately jumped ship to WWE when rights to ECW were purchased by WWE. Heyman served as a commentator for WWE just weeks later and became an integral part of the Alliance during the Invasion era which pitted WCW and ECW against WWE
  • Heyman returned to the company several times since then, including managing wrestlers, working as General Manager of the SmackDown! brand, and heading up the return of WWE's version of ECW in June 2005. Heyman parted with the company just over one year later after backstage tension with Vince and Stephanie McMahon surfaced over their vision of booking the third WWE brand
Other Career Highlights:
  • Created the online news and video website "The Heyman Hustle," which often features Heyman's own thoughts on professional wrestling
  • Worked as a sports announcer in the 2002 remake film Rollerball
