The Wrestling Observer Newsletter is reporting that Paul Heyman had a conference call this past week with Spike TV. Spike is under pressure to improve the ratings. Believe it or not, Spike has fallen out of the top 25 on cable and the overall rating has hovered between 0.5 and 0.6, way down from a couple of years back.
Plz dont close this thread, this is a bit different from the "Paul E is coming to TNA".

With Hogan signing with H & H Imports Inc, this is starting to setting up for the arrival of Paul E and the end of Hogan in TNA.

Re: *Rumor * Heyman And Spike TV In Negotiations?

Spike TV have been in negotiations with Kurt Angle, Mick Foley and Ric Flair and they were successful in bringing them in. Heyman however, is a different ball game and the only way to bring him into TNA is if Dixie Carter lets go of her total power control and gives Paul E what he wants. Russo isn't helping and with Hogan and Bischoff on board, no wonder they're going to end up reviving yet another WCW thing with the storylines. Nobody wants to see another fucking Wolfpac revival, we all know how the last one ended.

Hogan wants to become a pitchman. He needs to leave TNA for that. Bischoff is only there to try and get Spike TV to have a midget wrestling show on their channel, so fuck him too! Russo can walk out the door too since he has nothing to contribute any more.

Mostly.

If anything, it's possibly for something unrelated to TNA.
Though the fact of the matter is Spike has very little original programming.

You know Amber is gonna close this :rolleyes:

Nothing really new, and it's getting ridiculous that these stories keep coming out. Paul Heyman will not sign with TNA unless he gets a nice payday and full control of creative. With Bischoff and Hogan in TNA, it won't happen. But with Hogan's imminent departure set up, the chances could go up in about two months.

Heyman signing with TNA will happen, it's just a matter of when and how much.
