The only thing I'm interested in Heyman writing is a book. 

Heyman is supposed to be someone who enjoys "stretching the truth", so not sure if it would be a good thing, might end up as bad as Hogans book!

I would imagine that to be very true. 

They will be ok then, none of them can get any heat. 

Ospreay is very precious about passing things down with a blessing though, whether it be a trademark move or the cost of his mums car.

The last thing WWE writing needs is more streamlining. 

It probably doesn't matter because it seems whoever is writing I just writing to get stuff through Vince or else he re-writes it anyway but if it wasn't for the all-seeing eye, I'd say it absolutely does need streamlining. It needs to be a tighter vision across the board with a team who have an eye over everything. It's disjointed from segment to segment.

AEW suffered from some of that too when they had people booking their own bits all over the place.

Heyman did have an autobiography in the pipeline, but it was shelved when he returned to WWE. It getting set back and set back - I had it on pre-order for probably a couple of years by the end of it all - but I've heard nothing about anything being released since he came back.

Do they usually tweet out changes in writing personnel, or is this more of a ratings panic than usual?

Probably a combination of the dire ratings and because they made such a fuss of hiring Heyman and Bischoff to head up the writing of both shows and, in less than a year, have sacked them both off.

Fair point. I guess it's a vague term - and it's just a press release anyway - but when I think 'streamlining' I think getting all the boys to hit their bullet points, point at the sign, "Because at Extreme Rules!", say the new buzzwords etc.

According to PWTorch, EVOLVE Wrestling has been placed on hiatus, with COVID-19 given as the official reason.

Apparently, Gabe Sapolsky posted the news on a private Facebook group. Let’s see how long ‘hiatus’ remains the status, or if it becomes ‘ceased. 

Sapolsky is already working with NXT, so I imagine he’ll be there full time going forward.

Is this stemming from the rumour last week that WWE have bought it out and acquired the tape library? 

EVOLVE closing and basically merging into NXT seems to have been on the cards ever since that show was on the network

They haven't run a show since 1 March. The "hiatus" is just them confirming they have no plans to run any future shows.

Do we know what the deal is with their talent contracts? Do they usually let them work elsewhere? Not that there's many options right now anyway.

Source?

Having checked Twitter, Don Callis himself technically. Made a comment post Impact last night that they've brought someone in who taught him a lot during 1999 to 2001 and putting 2 and 2 together, people have assumed Heyman.
