ECW legend “Raven” was a guest on “Heated Conversations With Booker T” recently. During the interview, Raven revealed that he and former Smashing Pumpkins singer and wrestling fan Billy Corgan attempted to buy ECW from Paul Heyman. Raven mentioned that Heyman turned down their offer and speculated as to why he did so. Here are the highlights:
On Why Heyman Wouldn’t Sell ECW:
Billy Corgan was talking about how one day he wanted to buy ECW from Paul Heyman and Paul wanted to charge him a ridiculous mark price for it and he didn’t do it. To be honest, I don’t think Paul wanted to sell it. He gave you a price you couldn’t match because he didn’t want to sell it. That was why he didn’t want to sell it to Tommy Dreamer, because he wanted it to go under with him in charge so that it was his show, and that if it continued the way it did, it was his baby. If it got buried the way Vince McMahon buried it it didn’t effect the magic that he created so I don’t really think he really ever wanted to sell it and he just wanted it to go down with him as the captain of the ship.
On Paul Heyman Witholding Checks From Wrestlers:
He didn’t do that to me, so I have nothing but good things to say about him.
