Clarification reports indicate that Paul Heyman is working tonight’s Ohio Valley Wrestling show on an extension of his old contract. The two sides continue to work out the terms of a new, long-term deal.
According to sources, Paul Heyman did not address his contractual status with wrestlers at the OVW meeting this morning. Thus, for now, business is being run as usual in the WWE developmental territory.
Although Stephanie McMahon’s heat with Paul Heyman could prevent him from returning to the booking team for RAW or SmackDown, there has been satisfaction expressed with his work in OVW. WWE wants to re-sign Paul Heyman as both a way of securing his involvement in future ECW projects and preventing TNA from getting its hands on the wrestling notable.
