I've seen rumors here and there, but I'll believe it when it comes to pass. What's your source?
Assuming that it does, what does this mean for Bischoff and Hogan? Granted, they've done nothing but waste money, tank the ratings, and get rid of some of my favorite wrestlers, but that's still a pretty quick turnaround of opinion there -- since Heyman having complete control necessarily means that Hogan & Bischoff's much-ballyhooed creative control would be reduced.

Originally posted by StaggerLeeReports are the big surprise is that Paul Heyman is coming and along with Kevin Sullivan, will have complete control of the book with Russo moving to a non writing position.
Come on. Whose reports? Any links? If not, why not?
Since I have absolutely no context here, can I at least ask if you're SURE you know which "Kevin Sullivan" it is?
I'm pretty sure (the other) Kevin Sullivan has been employed by TNA before...and may still be?
Oh, well, he co-wrote the WWE Encyclopedia in 2009, so I guess he's been on hiatus.
Why would Paul Heyman be any better than Vince Russo? Heyman had some good ideas back in the early ninties, while Russo had some in the late ninties. But the ninties are over! I couldn't care less if it is Heyman or not.
At this point I wouldn't even start watching TNA on a regular basis if they hired The Rock and Stone Cold at the same time.
They need to do something new and fresh. And I don't mean Samoa Joe or AJ Styles, because they aren't fresh and/or the solution as well.
Earlier this week, we reported that TNA President Dixie Carter posted a message on Twitter that she’s got a “nice surprise” in store for the fans at Slammiversary. Now, things just got a little more interesting. Carter wrote the following on her Twitter account early Saturday morning: “It’s 6:30 am. Been up for hours. So excited I can’t sleep. TNA’s about to change forever. Can’t wait to share it w/you, my staff, the talent” There’s a lot of buzz that TNA has reached out to big names to work on the creative end of the company. PWInsider.com is confirming that two of those names are Kevin Sullivan and Paul Heyman. Word is that if Paul Heyman would come into TNA, he would need complete control of the creative side of things. With Vince Russo dramatically scaling back his role in TNA, the door is open for a new creative force to come in. Dixie Carter also recently wrote on Twitter: “Just got off phone w/Spike prez Kevin Kay. He is all in and agrees this will change TNA on every level.” According to F4WOnline.com, sources say that Dixie Carter was being very secretive about the impending changes, offering only “cryptic remarks” about making sure everyone is on the same page in advance of the changes.
I will not be making an announcement about how TNA will change forever. You will just see for yourselves in the coming weeks.
However, there is still a nice surprise for tonight's Slammiversary pay-per-view.
In completely unrelated news, my uncle, a Nigerian prince, has passed away, and I require help in transferring a sum of no less than 25 million$ American. Please PM if you can provide assistance. God bless you.
The issue isn't over the knife-edge chops, it's with the "WOOOO!" the fans will make when they see the chops, which WWE doesn't want on TV since Flair's in TNA. Trish Stratus also had/has permission to use Flair's chops.
