Kofi Kingston is the current WWE Champion. A video of him was just released on YouTube. He was seen talking to WFF about various topics related to the professional wrestling industry. He spoke about the WWE hiring Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman.
Bischoff and Heyman are the new Executive Directors and Smackdown and RAW respectively. "This is amazing news, this is awesome news; I think everyone is going to benefit by having two of the greatest minds in the history of wrestling actually dictating storylines and developing characters," Kofi explained.
"I think it's a bonus and it's a plus for everybody involved, for people on the roster who are looking to have character changes, people on the roster who are looking to have different rivalries, unique rivalries, etc.
I think it's a great situation especially for the fans”. Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff actually ran their own promotions. Eric Bischoff actually tried to get WWE out of business. He was the president of WCW and he actually beat the WWE in TV ratings numerous times.
He managed to sign the best WWE wrestlers of that time, and was winning the Monday Night Wars actually. Paul Heyman on the other hand ran ECW. They were never actually competing with the WWE, but they had their group of loyal fans. Their style of wrestling was quite different from that of the WWE.
