• Paul Heyman Has Been Completely Silent After Being Removed As The Executive Director Of RAW
On Thursday evening, WWE announced that the RAW and SmackDown creative teams would be merged and they would be led by Bruce Prichard, who would be replacing Paul Heyman as the Executive Director of RAW.
Heyman had been working very hard on the red brand to build up new talent and get them over with the fans, but Vince McMahon’s frustration about the RAW ratings finally led to the dismissal of Heyman from his position.
Fightful is reporting that Heyman has been completely silent since the announcement, and he hasn’t responded to anyone who has reached out to him:
“Another top name told us that they’d checked on Paul, but had received radio silence back, which seemed to be the common theme until the early morning following the move. They said that backstage, Paul was always ‘cool as a cucumber’, but that doesn’t always reflect the stresses of the job he had.”
