– As noted before, TNA has hired a consulting firm to look at their TV numbers and interview fans for feedback. The memories from fans in the males 18-34 demographic of ECW were said to be strongly positive. Based on that research, Eric Bischoff is interested in doing an ECW-like stable in TNA. The idea would be to have Paul Heyman as the leader of the group with guys like Tommy Dreamer, Team 3D, Rob Van Dam, Taz, Dr. Stevie, Raven and Mick Foley, when he returns to the storylines.
There are conflicting reports on Heyman. Some close to him believe there’s a chance of him coming to TNA but others don’t believe it will happen, as a talent or writer. Heyman was being talked about a lot at the recent iMPACT tapings backstage. Heyman is currently working on two different books, one being an autobiography.
