Paul E Launches NewsCorp's Foray into Internet TV

ECW founder Paul E. Dangerously (Paul Heyman) is teaming up with Executive Producer Peter E. Poon to launch "NewsCorp's first step into the Internet-mobile broadcasting platform," The Heyman Hustle.

The first episode features a last-second appearance by former WWF heavyweight and Governor of Minnesota Jesse "The Body" Venture.

According to the National Ledger and the Sun's Mark Gilbert, "The popularity of the Hustle show lead to it being on the splash page of the Sun."

The Sun interviewed Heyman about the Hustle, his absence from professional wrestling, his relationship with Vince McMahon and his thoughts on the new brand of ECW, which Paul E. describes as a "monumental letdown" and compares it to someone describing a resurrection of the Beatles as “You know what, we want to make them more globally accepted, so we’re going to have a white guy, an Asian female, a Hispanic Bisexual and an African-American with a Scottish accent.”

On McMahon: "Vince is such a control freak that if he sneezes, the next 10 minutes of any meeting are ruined because he is so pissed at himself for not being able to control the sneeze."

Good stuff. Check it out here.
