Paul Heyman: A WWE-TNA Crossover Makes No Sense

Paul Heyman: A WWE-TNA Crossover Makes No Sense

For those who may have missed it this past week, Digital Spy posted a very good article featuring quotes from WWE’s Paul Heyman where he responds to comments about TNA President Dixie Carter showing interesting in a crossover event with WWE for a big live event.

“I’m sure that Dixie Carter would love to do a WWE versus TNA pay-per-view. Why wouldn’t she? A friend of mine who has way too much time on his hands just started a new beverage company here in the United States. It’s called Shmuley’s Soda Company and he’s now distributed in three stores in the Bronx and two in Brooklyn.

“He would like to do a global promotion with Coca-Cola. I don’t suggest that Coca-Cola would be profitable having to do a global co-promotion with Shmuley’s Soda Company. In the same way it would make no sense for WWE with 95% global share to do an event with TNA with its 5% global market share!”

Heyman is spot on with the above statement and we thought it was worth posting again on a slow news day.

    good job you admitted it a slow new day and the reason this was posted again

  2. Luis says:

    Heyman only cares that Vince gives him his paycheck but do you remember ECW did crossover promotion with WWE but did it make sense to him back then?

    • pepsilover2008 says:

      Yes because wcw was doing really well back then so he teamed up with the other small guy

      • OldManEaston says:

        Yep, Heyman needed the money and hoped for more exposure, and WWE needed the talent. At the time of the cross promotion, WWF's roster was a mess. Half of their roster looked like characters out of a bad Mad TV wrestling parody sketch. Another huge bunch were has-beens, never weres or never woulds, with just a few legit top guys and a bunch of un-provens.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      At the time it was to help push attention to ECW, while WWE attempting to compete with WCW. At the time WWE had something to gain from it. In this scenario; WWE has absolutely nothing to gain from it. The only two ways it would every happen is if: Dixie greases up the pot financially, or Dixie finds some kind of massive leverage over WWE.

    With some things like this, it's suppose to be a 50 50 spilt. Tna will get a lot but what about wwe? They won't get much if anything besides the taker sting match

    • IHNSAIN says:

      wwe would benefit from a decent match

    • Real Deal Heel says:

      WWE would benefit a ton from an Undertaker/Sting match. So would we.

    • Philly_Cheese says:

      Having Sting compete with taker at wrestlemania seems to be the only leverage TNA has over WWE, which will probably never happen. I doubt WWE sees it as being big enough, and even if they did I doubt they'd openly show it.

    Who cares about a member of Vince McMahon’s real kiss my ass club

  5. Sturk says:

    It's funny because Dixie Carter was just answering a question asked in an interview. She did not say she was perusing the whole thing, she just basically said she'd like to see it. She was just conveying the message that she's not one of those bosses that hate WWE or has ill will to them. Heyman probably never read her interview where she said it, the interview person probably told him Dixie said it seriously and Heyman answered not even knowing the context in which Dixie said it. SMH

  6. Sturk says:

    Heyman's dumb anyways….. WWE did a crossover with ECW.

    • JoeWrestling says:

      WWF worked with USWA and Smokey Mountain Wrestling. And people have talked about them working with ROH directly. Yeah, the comment is dumb and meant to be.

  7. Leg Drop Jobber says:

    Robbie E. vs. Fandango would be a 5 Star match.

  8. MRPC says:

    Of course Paul Gayman would have to comment!!

  9. The Spectacular Crimson Spider says:

    While I do find Heyman’s comments on the douchebaggy side, I have to agree on some levels, With the global hold WWE has, there wouldn’t be a point for them to do so. Unless A.J. Bobby, James, Joe, and the others get it together and get the recognition they deserve, I don’t see it forming anytime soon. TNA has to put their foot in the ass of the American audience and make them HAVE to watch them. Only by improving the product of what comes on TV and how they book their talent can they surpass WWE. And also, GET MORE SHOWS!!! I can not stress that enough. They can easily get the money from Panda Energy to get a second show and expose more of the other wrestlers for the world to see. They could even start, what are those things called? Oh yeah, STORYLINES, into the show, creating rivalries that could boost the ratings and gain more exposure for the overall product. They have so much potential in rest of the roster, that it’s a damn shame they don’t use them more. If they get a second two hour show, they can showcase both the Knockouts and the X-Division. That can add prestige and interest in the titles again. Hell, reinstitute the Knockout Tag belts make it s night to remember. TNA CAN compete with WWE, they just gotta stop playing checkers and start playing chess.
