WWE News: Heyman's Contract Status, Australia Tour a Success, Hebner Fined

- Paul Heyman signed a five-year contract with WWE right after ECW folded so it appears that his deal will probably end sometime in early 2006. At this point, odds are that he will not be retained with the company in any capacity.

- The recent WWE Australian tour was a huge success, doing approximately $4.5 million in business on just six events. The event in Sydney drew $1.1 milion of that revenue.

- Brian Hebner was suspended for one month and fined $1000 for being "constantly out of control" on the Australia tour. Most insiders believe that had Hebner not been the son of veteran referee Earl Hebner, he would have been released outright.
