Paul had to do everything but put up the cash for the ECW ppv. He told Vince it would be big and it was. Still that did not convince Titan tower to let him run with it. Instead Vince thought he could ECW up WWE a bit.
Paul kept fighting and finally went to ohio valley. Watching that promotion turn it around finally convinced Vince to let Paul do ECW PAULs way.
Say what you want about Heyman, this is something he has been fighting for and has been very adamant about doing it the right way. His way.
He is one of the best bookers\wrighters in the Biz.
As long as he doesnt burn out (like he did with the original incarnation of ECW) Its gonna be good.
