When he first went out, I thought it was because he told Steph that she should "step down" as Head of Creative due to "conflict of interest". Personally, I liked that one. Then I read something about how he's be off TV 'till SummerSlam because he "didn't like how he looked on TV" and was gonna lose weight. Then I read something about his back being messed up. He got hurt by Brock's F5's or some such nonsense. Then tonight, I read something on one of the "cut and paste" sites, supposedly taken from the WO Newsletter that he has a heart condition, but has now been cleared to return. I know that he was supposed to be watching the shows and mailing in comments, ala the job they offered Russo last year, but does anybody know the real story? I think he's gonna show up at Smackdown here on Sept. 23. Just a feeling, but if anybody has heard anything else, like the REAL story, I'd appreciate hearing about it. Yeah, I know he's a jerk and all, but the story about him and Steph cracks me up.
I have not read about the heart condition story but last I heard he was given the job Russo walked away from and he had surgrey to repaire his neck that he hurt from taking all of Lesner's F5's. I want him to return to TV too and I hope its soon. Maybe he can be the one that helped make Lesner turn heel.

I know I say this ALOT, but when (or if...) Heyman comes back, he needs to be super-dicked out rudo heel Paul E. Dangerously, and form a new Deadly Alliance. You've got everyone you need. Brock, Eddy, Rhyno (or MH v.1 if Rhyno and Eddy have issues), A-Train and Big Show. Train and Show go for the Tag titles, MH v.1 goes after Rey-Rey, Eddy's U.S. Champ, and well, Brock is Brock.
Gives Pauly something to do, and ultimately, lots of consecutive defenses for Angle.
Just MHO :)
Fallin back on dat ass with a hellified gangsta lean, gettin funky on the mike like an old batch of collard greens, its the CapitalSohyesNpressiondoubleOP, DOdoubleGY DOdoubleG you see.
Yeah, I wish Heyman would hurry and make a return and form a new stable of guys ... My personal picks would be Big Show, Haas & Benjamin, Rhyno and Tajiri ... that would be a totally dominate group that could wreak some havoc.

Not for nothing, but Paul Heyman's image was perfect as a heel manager. Suit with ballcap. This hides any and all physical attributes that could be seen as ugly, and thus cause mark out moments when shown. The hat flies off, the baldness makes itself known, the fans go bananas.
IMO, there is no one better to portray a heel manager/mouth peice than Paul Heyman today in wrestling either.
I would've really liked to have seen a bit where he and Piper screamed at each other.
Heel stable for Heyman? How about Benoit, Rhyno, Kidman, Benjamin, and Haas?
WGTT should be an easy one, since Heyman put them together in the first place. Kidman's gonna go heel on Rey, but can't play a heel worth a lick when left to his own devices. Heyman could talk for him, and would make the CW title seem like a more important goal. Rhyno, again, easy, with the ECW connection. Finally, Benoit...Benoit is not going to win the title as a face. I don't think he's got the charisma to do it, especially not with Eddie now apparently leapfrogging him on the totem pole. As a 'silent but deadly' type heel with Heyman and some heels backing him up, though, he could make it work.
To be honest... this theory does hold some water... some of the highest ratings in Raw history were times when they were just havin' fun... For example, the "This is Your Life" segment with The Rock and Mankind...
