• Paul Heyman Is Trying To Use AEW’s Ideas On WWE TV
According to the Wrestling Observer, RAW Executive Director Paul Heyman is trying to use All Elite Wrestling’s ideas on WWE programming:
“Paul Heyman for Raw is trying to go with the idea of having backstage interviews have less of the fake dialogue and come across more realistic, and that there would be more consequences, essentially what AEW promises with the idea that wins and losses will matter and that angles won’t just be forgotten and dropped, and if someone gets hurt one week they won’t be fine the next week.”
While Heyman has already begun working on RAW as the Executive Director, Eric Bischoff will begin his work as the Executive Director of SmackDown from next week.
