Paul Heyman On Renee Young Filling In On RAW

Backstage News on Paul Heyman’s Power Within WWE Possibly Growing With Vince Out

— Changes have been rampant in WWE over the last couple of weeks, stemming from the ongoing investigation into Vince McMahon’s alleged misconduct over the years which pretty much forced him out of his company as CEO, Chairman and also off the Board of Directors. Stephanie McMahon, who had been groomed for the eventual CEO role for years, has assumed significant power as the co-CEO with former President Nick Khan now the other co-CEO. Paul Levesque also has come back into an executive role with a vengeance, named as the EVP of Talent Relations as well as the head of creative.

— One name which has also been making the rounds as potentially also someone to keep an eye on is former ECW owner and WWE Executive Director, Paul Heyman. Wade Keller of recently spoke about the possibility of Heyman’s influence and power growing within WWE on a recent PWTorch VIP audio show:
<blockquote>“He ran ECW, he revolutionized the wrestling industry. Without him there is no Attitude Era, I don’t think. And then he has worked with WWE and he butted heads with Stephanie McMahon. As I’ve talked about in recent months, it seems like to people that have seen them that Heyman and Stephanie get along. You know like, genuinely, there’s a chemistry and a dynamic between them that’s very positive. And that’s very different than you know, 15-20 years ago. So, Heyman is someone to watch. He’s really, really smart. And he is a wrestling guy.”

“He’s so smart and he’s so connected to big names Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey, Roman Reigns. So depending on how things shake out, Triple H and Stephanie may be leaning on Paul, and he could be in their inner circle. And that would be quite a powerful trio of people who could take WWE into the next era on the wrestling side, Nick on the business side, and then Stephanie, Paul and Paul…So that’s something to watch.”</blockquote>
