Backstage Update: Paul Heyman & TNA Wrestling
Source: Wrestling Observer NewsletterPaul Heyman is currently working with EA Sports on the new "EA Sports MMA" video game and was working on vignettes for fighters like Nick Diaz, Frank Shamrock, Cung Le and Fabricio Werdum as recent as this past week.
As for his talks with TNA in the last few months, Heyman has stated to many around him that the deal is completely dead. It should be noted that at one point a deal between Heyman and TNA was very close, but the only hold up getting it done was Heyman being given the right to hire and fire. Many people feel that his involvement with MMA betting that he will eventually wind up in some capacity with the San Jose-based MMA organization Strikeforce.
We'll keep you posted.
