Paul Heyman's WWE firing could hurt future of young stars

Yesterday we told you about Vince McMahon's sensational choice to remove Paul Heyman from the role of Executive Director of Monday Night Raw, after about a year of hard work at the helm of the company's red flagship show.

After this dismissal, apparently several of the Superstars that Paul Heyman carried in the palm of their hands, they could soon have changed or even disappear almost entirely from WWE TV screens, with young talents that only Heyman supported in the backstage, which could thus end their short push.

In recent months, in fact, Monday Night Raw has had a slight inflection of the TV ratings, which Vince McMahon hated and for which he blamed Heyman. This inflexion, according to Vince McMahon, should be sought in part, even in the exposure under the limelight of the most important of the WWE, of boys not yet ready for the main roster and especially for the upper part of the Raw card.

We are talking about talents like Ricochet, Austin Theory, Street Profits and many others.

According to reports from the well-known overseas website Fightful, there would be a lot of guys that Paul Heyman would have tried to push wildly, with Vince McMahon who would have always been against it, until he really removed the Mad Genius from the Raw command.

Starting from the Street Profits, to which the couple titles were assigned, and then ending up making comedy skits for weeks, on the TV screens of the red show, according to the journalists of the well-known site, in fact: "Ricochet and Cedric Alexander were talents Heyman wanted to keep trying, but Vince McMahon vetoed their push.

The Street Profits and Liv Morgan were also people Heyman was struggling with, but the results were the same." Now we will have to see with the latest talents and storylines that Heyman has got his hands on, if they still convince the McMahon-Prichard couple, or if once they are in command of both WWE's flagship shows, they will drastically change everything we are seeing in Raw or even in Smackdown.

In WWE, Paul Heyman has advocated for five WWE Champions: Brock Lesnar, Big Show, Kurt Angle, Rob Van Dam, and CM Punk. Critics have praised his abilities at advocating and on the microphone. Heyman has also competed sporadically in matches, including the WWE Championship main event of the 2002 Rebellion pay-per-view.
