The UK Sun has posted a brand new interview with Paul Heyman, during which he reveals that he had a 5 year plan for TNA if he had ended up working with the company. Heyman says, "I had a five-year plan. I was going to spend 18 months building the roster and the next 18 months exploiting that built roster. That’s three years in, go public in three, stay for two more running it and get out at 50. That was my plan, I had an exit plan. I had a five-year plan and I clued everyone into it.
I told TNA what my plan was and I told Spike TV what my plan was and how we would capitalize on it.
I also explained how we would make this thing move and an acknowledgment that wrestling is a diminishing market and it’s not perceived as cool. So I told them how you, if not change course, at least present it differently so that at least you have a chance in today’s marketplace to compete. When that didn’t happen, that was it. I didn’t have any other interest in doing it. It was closed. I would have done it for that particular deal and that’s it. That time passed." To read the entire interview, CLICK HERE.
