In a recent meeting with TNA President Dixie Carter, Paul Heyman stated that he didn’t believe in drastic changes, but the direction TNA should go in should focus on pushing new talent as the key stars while using the veterans to give them credibility.
Believe it or not, but Paul Heyman did not support the idea of an ECW invasion when it was brought up, yet Carter went ahead with the angle anyway. Dixie ended up handing over the reigns to the angle to Tommy Dreamer rather than using Paul Heyman to book the ECW angle.
While the Heyman deal could be a long shot, it’s not dead yet. TNA thinks Heyman is using negotiating tactics and the parties are still hopeful a deal can be reached.
