Paul Heyman’s latest column for the UK Sun is about Tommy Dreamer and his ECW Title win. He talks about Tommy’s tranformation from a goofy, hated pretty boy to the heart and soul of the original ECW, and how Die Hard fits in to it. He also explains why he’s not ecstatic that Tommy won the title, as he thinks he has a bigger achievement under his belt.
He even claims that Vince McMahon was so indifferent to Tommy’s character that he wanted Heyman to fire Tommy (along all of the other ECW Originals besides Sabu and RVD) on an early episode of ECW TV, which would have led to real future endeavors for the lot of them. Heyman says John Laurinaitis and Stephanie McMahon went to bat for the Originals and helped Heyman persuade Vince to keep them around.
