• Paul Heyman Wants A RAW Wrestler To Be Used More
The Executive Director of RAW, Paul Heyman, has been behind the push of many wrestlers on RAW.
His last pick was Apollo Crews, but as he’s out with a kayfabe injury right now, Heyman is focused on Akira Tozawa right now.
It should be noted that Tozawa is being given more chances on RAW than usual. Dave Meltzer noted on the Wrestling Observer Radio that Heyman is a fan of Tozawa, and he wants him to be used more.
While Tozawa doesn’t win much, he’s still getting a chance every week to showcase his talent.
