Paul Heyman has been an influential figure in the backstage roles in WWE. He has decades of experience in the behind the scenes roles and is an integral part of the company. He also formed ECW and revolutionized the pro-wrestling industry. He is currently serving as the on-screen manager of Undisputed WWE Universal Champion Roman Reigns. But it is quite surprising that a veteran like Heyman was not roped in by IMPACT Wrestling(TNA) back in the day.
Jeff Jarret explains why IMPACT Wrestling never signed Paul Heyman
During his podcast, ‘My World’ with Jeff Jarrett, the WWE Hall of Famer commented on why Impact Wrestling (TNA) never signed Paul Heyman to a contract during the period when Heyman wasn’t working for WWE. Here is what he said:
“Never could afford it. I just knew – same with Jim Ross, same with a lot of folks – that Bob Carter and maybe Dixie and Janice or the attorneys, they may want to flirt with this, but when they start seeing real price tags, it wasn’t gonna happen. There was a real education process up until we started having a good run in ’07, ’08, and ’09. They had money in the bank, then they pulled the trigger on Hulk Hogan. But for the most part, those price tags – they weren’t up for that. They weren’t willing to spend the money.”
Heyman has been in the corner of Roman Reigns for a long time now, though he seemingly teased joining forces with Brock Lesnar. Heyman was in the corner of ‘The Tribal Chief’ when he defeated then WWE Champion Brock Lesnar to become the Undisputed WWE Universal Champion in the main event of WrestleMania 38. It seems he is enjoying his time as the ‘Special Counsel’ of ‘The Head of The Table.’
