Paul Heyman Talks TNA - WWE Crossover, CM Punk Vs. Jericho At Payback, Wanting World Titles Unified
Source: Digital SpyDigital Spy has an interview with Paul Heyman, who was promoting this Sunday's Payback pay-per-view. Here are just a couple of highlights:
What fans can expect from CM Punk this Sunday in his match with Chris Jericho: ""You can expect to see CM Punk do what CM Punk does on a daily basis in his career, which is demonstrate to the WWE Universe that he is worthy of the distinction of being the best in the world."
Dixie Carter recently saying that she would do a WWE / TNA crossover event: "I'm sure that Dixie Carter would love to do a WWE versus TNA pay-per-view. Why wouldn't she? A friend of mine who has way too much time on his hands just started a new beverage company here in the United States. It's called Shmuley's Soda Company and he's now distributed in three stores in the Bronx and two in Brooklyn.
"He would like to do a global promotion with Coca-Cola. I don't suggest that Coca-Cola would be profitable having to do a global co-promotion with Shmuley's Soda Company. In the same way it would make no sense for WWE with 95% global share to do an event with TNA with its 5% global market share!"
His ideal WrestleMania 30 main event: "I have a very standard answer for that because it's the most genuine answer I can give someone. I think the main event for WrestleMania 30 should be a battle for the WWE Championship against the World Heavyweight Championship, to unify the titles.
"And that match should feature Brock Lesnar versus CM Punk, with Paul Heyman advising both men and therefore getting a percentage of the profits of both sides of the main event at WrestleMania."
Much more is contained in the interview, including Heyman discussing Punk's loss to Undertaker at WrestleMania, if CM Punk is the best wrestler he's worked with, Ryback, Curtis Axel, what's next for him and more. You can read the full interview by clicking here.
