While promoting the WWE Royal Rumble earlier this year, Heyman appeared as a guest on a podcast, The Masked Man Show with Kaz. When asked what his opinion was on the fans screaming alongside him when he used to introduce Brock Lesnar, the legendary manager said that he wasn’t that surprised by it happening in the US. However, when Saudi Arabian fans did the same he realized how popular the WWE was globally.

“If LeBron James walks down the street in Paris or Rome, he could pretty much not get (bothered), it would be like Justin Bieber walking down the street. It would be like, Oh my God, it’s LeBron James” Heyman said. “The biggest sports stars in America can go elsewhere and not get that much bothered. That doesn’t exist with WWE superstars. They work everywhere, we are everywhere.”
Heyman conceded that the NBA, NFL and UFC are more popular than WWE in the United States. However, WWE surpasses them outside the North American content. He also said that the Wrestling promotion’s global distribution was both extremely under-reported and under-appreciated.
