Paul Heyman Sacked: Backstage chaos and confusion during WWE Backlash

One of the most sensational news of the week was that we saw Paul Heyman be dismissed from his position as Executive Director of Monday Night Raw, just as the McMahons did just a few months ago with his Smackdown counterpart, Eric Bischoff.

Apparently, however, with the fall of the role on the red show, Paul Heyman would also have been ousted by the creative team in its entirety, with Backlash who went ahead with the orphaned creative team of Mad Genius. Apparently, after the departure of Paul Heyman, who was now holding the reins of a little 'all the main shows of the federation, both Raw and the various PPV, the situation in the backstage while recording the last PPV of the WWE (Backlash) was not the best and indeed many have described it as chaotic and confusing.

Paul Heyman Sacked: Backstage chaos and confusion during WWE Backlash

According to what was revealed by the well-known American site Ringside News, which apparently has very important internal WWE sources, the situation in the backstage of the last PPV of the federation, would have been literally surreal and chaotic, with several wrestlers and insiders who they would have understood nothing of the lineup of the matches and the various angles and that for several times they had to ask what should be done to Vince McMahon.

The WWE Chairman himself, apparently, would not yet have revealed the new structure of the creative team that needs to be followed, or would not have yet announced "who commands what" and especially "who does what"

In the Backlash backstage, therefore, the WWE staff and crew went ahead as they say "off the cuff", with Vince McMahon and Bruce Prichard who monitored everything, without however letting the staff understand what to do.

Apparently, several WWE writers wouldn't even know in which weekly show they were placed, if in Raw and Smackdown, with the backstage situation that seems increasingly uncertain and doubtful after Paul Heyman's farewell.

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.

Heyman's work as a promoter and booker has been praised by many wrestling fellows and critics. Former ECW World Champion Raven called him "the most creative genius the business has ever seen" Heyman is known for his promos, being considered a genius and is widely regarded as one of the best promo cutters of all time.
