Paul Heyman, Eric Bischoff to run WWE TV programs
Big news coming from WWE this morning. Justin Barrasso of SI.com broke the news that Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff have been named as Executive Directors. Heyman will be taking on his new role for Raw while Bischoff will for Smackdown Live. Both of course will be reporting directly to Vince McMahon. At this point in time neither one will be introduced as part of a TV storyline with their roles.
Heyman was best known for his work in ECW and currently being the advocate of Brock Lesnar. Bischoff was best known for his work in WCW and going head to head with WWE and Vince McMahon during the Monday Night Wars.
My take is this is a great move for WWE. WWE needs all the help they can get and utilizing two of the best minds in pro wrestling is a good thing. Of course Vince still does have the final say on everything so it’ll be interesting to see if Vince will actually listen to Heyman and Bischoff or if we’ll be continuing going down the same path.
