• Difference Between Paul Heyman & Eric Bischoff’s Roles In WWE Right Now
During a recent edition of his podcast, Brad Shepard talked about the difference between RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman and SmackDown Executive Director Eric Bischoff’s roles in WWE at the moment.
Below is what Shepard said:
“Paul is involved in the creative aspect. His role is different from Eric’s at least right now. Again, the difference is that Heyman’s been in the company forever and Heyman has even been doing some helping with the talent before this promotion.
So, you know he’s more integrated with what WWE is like today and for Eric Bischoff it’s really been decades so he’s got a big learning curve from that standpoint, but obviously, [Bischoff] has the huge experience from a producer and an executive standpoint running a show for a major network so that’s where he’s really going to be a big help.”
Bischoff started working on SmackDown this week, but he isn’t in charge of the creative right now:
“I was told that Eric was involved in one or two segments [last night]. Obviously, not on TV, but working with them backstage, but he’s just getting into this. He’s just coming back to the company he’s certainly not in charge in all of that which I think anybody would tell you so.
It’s gonna take time before he fully integrates and again, initially he’s not going to be in charge of creative and be heavily involved in doing everything from a creative standpoint.”
