Update On Reaction Behind-The-Scenes In WWE To Paul Heyman's New RAW Role

The report card is in for the first episode of the new "Paul Heyman Era" of WWE RAW, and the grades aren't as hot as you might think.

Within the wrestling industry, the reaction to Paul Heyman’s new role as the legitimate Executive Director behind-the-scenes for WWE RAW has been received with mixed reviews.

Dave Meltzer (@DaveMeltzerWON) noted in the most recent issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that while there are people who recognize Heyman as a “creative genius” and “master manipulator” who is up-to-date with the business, there are others who are concerned with his advancing age when one of the key problems is how to connect with a younger audience.
