Can those with greater knowledge on these booker things explain Kevin Sullivan's resume to me?

It would seem he is as out of touch as Russo, Hogan, etc.

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.

This would be good news, indeed, if true (though the Vince Russo being a part of the show in a non-writing role scares me).

FWIW, Pwinsider is reporting that it *isn't* a creative chance but who knows what to believe anymore with Dixie's cryptic messages and WWE's bizarre firings.

Kevin Sullivan always makes me think of his "brother" Evad, who I only know because Cactus Jack helped avenge Evad's injury. Foley told the story in one of his books.

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?

(Googles)

Oh, well, he co-wrote the WWE Encyclopedia in 2009, so I guess he's been on hiatus.

ANYWAY.

Pony up some damn sources, StaggerLee!

TNA's major surprise announcements have never been creative team changes, I don't see why they'd start now. Say what you will about wrestling bait and switch, but Dixie's always delivered.

I guess Russo/Bischoff are on the way their way out of TNA? I read awhile back somewhere where McMahon left the door open for Eric to come back in a on-air role, Could we see it very soon?

Found out that the surprise is a new wrestler. My friend sent me a link to the youtube video of his new theme song and entrance video that was leaked:

So you've upgraded from posting Youtubes without comment to post about Youtubes you haven't seen.

I hope the surprise is that Dixie herself has been training to join the Knockouts... then Awesome Kong comes out and kills her.

If the big surprise isn't Brutus Beefcake finally coming into the promotion then it is just not worth the hype.

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.

http://www.sescoops.com/wrestling-news/tna-news/major-changes-coming-to-tna-wrestling-very-soon/

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.

Dixie Carter's Twitter (twitter.com) as of two hour ago:


    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.

I'm wondering why they at least didn't throw a picture of Crash up at the beginning of either show. They may not have been able to edit the commentary to have someone mention it yet but they could have thrown up a quickie graphic by now.
