ECW Return Plans, Rock, Heyman A Liar?

– The Rock is currently scheduled to wrestle a match at WrestleMania 21.

– There is a rumor going around that Paul Heyman’s dismissal from the writing team might have stemmed from being caught red-handed “not telling the truth.” One source is under the impression the lie could have involved listening in on a RAW writer’s call.

Other reasons for his dismissal include clashing with Stephanie and Vince, as well as leaving meetings and conference calls early.

– At press time, there actually is some internal discussion about an ECW revival PPV for 2005. The idea was reportedly communicated to Vince McMahon via RVD; many, including Jim Ross, liked the idea. However, Stephanie was deadset against the idea. After the DVD sold well, those in favor got some more leverage, and Heyman approached Vince in front of Stephanie to ask about the PPV. Even after that attempt to confront Stephanie about her rejection, she still shows little interest in the idea and it is not known if it will ever materialize.
