At last word, TNA and Paul Heyman had yet to reach an agreement that would secure Heyman’s services. Dave Meltzer reports that dialogue is continuing, but there are also very real sticking points that need ironing out. We had heard they were far apart in terms of pay and over all control of the company. As noted earlier, Dixie Carter did address the talent before tonight’s Impact taping in Orlando, but did not mention Heyman’s status.

Eric Bischoff and Hulk Hogan are not expected at the Impact tapings this week.
