The original reason behind Heyman's dismissal was thought to have been because he was outspoken, but that may not be the case now.
Heyman was apparently dismissed for listening in to a Raw booking meeting without permission. Heyman was allowed access to Smackdown! booking
meetings, but not Raw. Before each Raw, the writers take place in conference calls, so they can discuss ideas about the show.
Roll is taken at the beginning of each call. A system is in place to announce when anyone joins the call or when someone hangs up. Unexpectedly during
a recent Raw meeting, the system announced that a person had left. Stephanie took roll and everyone was still there.
The WWE was fearful that someone had breached their system, but they were able to track the number in the call and the number belonged to Paul
This was the last straw for Heyman and he was put on leave of absence by Stephanie.
It is still uncertain if this will be permanent. Vince basically had to convince Stephanie to let Heyman back on the booking team the last time there
were problems and she was reluctant to do so. This time around, it might be impossible to convince her.
So to sum it up, the reason as to Heyman being dimissed may not be because he was outspoken, yet rather untrustworthy.
