• Paul Heyman Set To Make A Big Change To RAW
Paul Heyman is now the Executive Director of Monday Night RAW and he’s now set to make a big change to the red brand.
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Heyman is set to eliminate the role of authority figures on RAW TV:
“One thing they’re not going to do at least for this show [Raw] is at least for now they’ll have no heel authority figure and no authority figure at all.
During the entire time there was no mention of Paul Heyman. There was a very, very light chant when there were all the explosions at the start of the show. There was a very light ‘Thank You Paul’ chant or something like that. Thank you Heyman…there was ‘This is awesome’ and ‘Thank you Heyman’.”
