• USA Network ‘Very Unhappy’ About Paul Heyman Being Removed As The Head Of RAW Creative
Paul Heyman was replaced by Bruce Prichard as the Executive Director of RAW after serving WWE in that position for almost one year this past Thursday.
There have been mixed reactions to this move of WWE, but most of the talents are disappointed about it.
The Wrestling Observer noted the following about USA Network’s reaction to the change WWE made:
“I mean as far as the two stations I know that USA was unhappy with the change — very unhappy by the way. I don’t think that they were happy with the ratings, but they understood the ratings. They were told this would be a building process and they understood that.”
