• Several Major Pushes Could Come To A Halt On RAW After Paul Heyman Being Removed From Executive Director Position
As we noted earlier, Paul Heyman was replaced by Bruce Prichard as the Executive Director of RAW after serving in that position for almost one year.
During his time on RAW, Heyman pushed several wresters including Aleister Black, Murphy, Drew McIntyre, The Street Profits, Apollo Crews, Bobby Lashley, Cedric Alexander, Angel Garza, Ricochet and others.
The Wrestling Observer reports that it’s unlikely that all of those pushes will continue after Heyman’s departure.
“The belief is that McIntyre and the Street Profits are liked by McMahon and are probably safe, although they will be more subject to the whims of booking that may or may not protect them as well. As far as everyone else, it’s anyone’s guess.”
