A lot of the TNA talent backstage in Orlando prior to Victory Road were under the impression that Paul Heyman will be signing with the company, although that belief has been around for weeks. He has been in talks with TNA (more specifically Dixie Carter directly) for several months, and he was to be the surprise that did not come through at last month's PPV event.
Heyman was still in New York as far as anyone knew and no deal has been signed as of now. There are still several major issues to sort out and that is why he wasn't at the Victory Road PPV. We believe that is also why the ECW 'invasion' angle is playing out this long.
We'll keep you posted as we get more.
