As you all know by now, even before becoming Roman Reigns' on-screen manager, Paul Heyman held the role of Executive Director of Monday Night Raw, with Mad Genius having done that until a few months ago, or until the Chairman of the company himself, Vince McMahon, did not decide to remove Heyman from that role, preferring Bruce Prichard to him.
Although Heyman was dismissed from his position as Executive Director of Monday Night Raw, with the manager of Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns carrying out his tremendous work for about a year behind the scenes of the red show, many inside.
WWE backstage is still said to be very happy with his work, including McMahon himself, who thanked him publicly in the last conference call he had from WWE executives.
Paul Heyman reportedly rejected Braun Strowman
Apparently, one of the Superstars that Paul Heyman did not want on Raw during the period in which he was head of the creative team, responds to the name of Braun Strowman, former Universal champion of the company and athlete of great profile within the company.
To explain why Strowman from Raw was drafted at Smackdown with the 2019 Draft, the well-known overseas site Fightful thought about it, which revealed how Heyman wanted to focus on the still young and little known Superstars, trying to bring such youngsters into the limelight, thus preferring to have the former giant Wyatt Family move to the competing Smackdown show while he was on Raw.
Although Strowman then became Universal champion thanks to his arrival at Smackdown, with the Monster Among Men that we remember he won the absolute title of the blue brand in Wrestlemania against the former champion Bill Goldberg, in the place that had previously been assigned to Roman Reigns, your plans for Raw were quite different.
In the end, after exactly one year, Strowman finally returned to work on Raw, with the Draft that saw him as the protagonist for the second time in two years, with Heyman who is no longer at the head of the creative team of Raw, so at the moment it is not known what kind of plans the WWE will have for the athlete, once he returns to work permanently in the flag show of the company.
Paul Heyman returned to WWE television for the first time since being removed as Executive Director in August when he appeared on SmackDown to become Roman Reigns' on-screen manager. Heyman had last appeared on television at WrestleMania 36 when Drew McIntyre defeated Brock Lesnar to win the WWE Championship.
Heyman was replaced by Bruce Prichard as the Executive Director of RAW, who had also replaced Eric Bischoff as Executive Director of SmackDown.
