• Paul Heyman Helped In Making An Important Change On This Week’s RAW
According to the Wrestling Observer, the new rule of wrestling being banned during commercial breaks on RAW & SmackDown is now gone – thanks to RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman.
Wrestling Observer noted that Heyman was successful in persuading Vince McMahon to end this rule and it was hurting the product:
“Heyman was able to get wrestling during the commercial breaks and remove the constant having to do run-ins to stop matches to hit breaks or elimination or 2/3 fall rules matches that come out of nowhere and make no sense.”
