Tommy Dreamer, a former WWE Superstar, recently revealed that Paul Heyman begged him to stay in ECW when he was offered the chance to join WCW.

Dreamer, an original member of ECW, worked for the organization from 1993 until its dissolution in 2001 before joining WWE. Following his departure from the organization in 2010, he also worked briefly for TNA (now IMPACT Wrestling).

Dreamer recently claimed on the Reffin’ It Up podcast that WCW made several attempts to sign him. Heyman, who oversaw ECW at the time, begged him to remain with the business, claiming that the promotion would not succeed without him.

“Towards the end, they offered me a ton of cash, and I was prepared to accept, but Paul [Heyman] started crying and said something to me that seriously confused me. Since I was in charge of all the live events, Paul actually said, “ECW won’t survive without you,” which I forgave him for a lot of things. I was scheduling. I had a TV job. I was completing every task. Think of that, said Dreamer, “because he cried and said, “All your friends won’t have a job if you leave. (Thanks to WrestlingNews)
