Russo: Heyman turned me down
By MIKE ALDREN
PAUL HEYMAN turned down the chance to get back into the wrestling business.
That is the claim of TNA’s head writer Vince Russo, who reveals he personally called the ECW legend and former SunSport columnist last year and asked him to join the company.
Russo makes the revelation in his new book — Rope Opera: How WCW Killed Vince Russo — which is released in the UK on April 8 by ECW Press and Turnaround UK.
In the final chapter Russo tells fans: "Oh, and one last thing, for the record: I called Paul E personally to ask him to join TNA. He declined."
