• Backstage News On Who Vince McMahon Really Sees As The Top Star On RAW
During his time as the Executive Director of RAW, Paul Heyman pushed several wresters including Aleister Black, Murphy, Drew McIntyre, The Street Profits, Apollo Crews, Bobby Lashley, Cedric Alexander, Angel Garza, and Ricochet.
Vince McMahon stated in a conference call earlier this year that RAW was suffering from low ratings due to the use of new talent who fans weren’t familiar with. Apparently, he lost his patience about Heyman building them up, which led to Bruce Prichard replacing Heyman as the Executive Director of RAW.
McIntyre was a big project of Heyman, but it is unknown what Vince really thinks about him.
The Wrestling Observer noted that McMahon actually sees Randy Orton as the top guy on RAW.
“You get a guy like the #1 safe guy on RAW is Randy Orton it’s like no matter what in Vince’s mind Randy Orton’s made and no matter if people like Randy Orton or not I mean, he’s a good worker, I mean he’s a star forever, Vince sees him as a star.
He’s got what he wants and he thinks that when things get bad Vince always reverts back and you know it’s tall guys with good bodies — that’s what he reverts to and not great workers unless they can somehow get over immediately.”
