Strikeforce CEO Scott Coker told Ariel Helwani that an announcement on Paul Heyman working with the organisation is likely to come “in a couple of weeks”. He confirmed comments made by Heyman on Helwani’s MMA Hour* that the two were good friends and had recently had a meeting in New York to discuss Heyman working with Strikeforce. Coker praised the former ECW Owner and Smackdown Head Writer as having a “very creative mind” but would not expand on what role he envisaged him playing in the organisation.
