• Paul Heyman ‘Guaranteed’ To Bring In A Major Group To WWE Soon
As we noted before, the Fired Up podcast reported that there’s been talk of creating a Paul Heyman stable on RAW when Heyman makes his return to WWE programming.
It was recently reported that WWE officials considered pairing Heyman with Kevin Owens after Owens ‘quit’ a couple of weeks ago (and he returned last week already). WWE is still discussing the Heyman – Owens thing and there’s been talk of other names being paired with Heyman as well.
This would be similar to WWE doing a ‘Dangerous Alliance’ kind of deal with Heyman.
In an updated to this, the Fired Up podcast is now reporting that Heyman is ‘guaranteed’ to bring in a major group to WWE in about 1 month or 6 weeks.
We’ll keep you updated regarding this.
