Backstage Update On Paul Heyman's New Role Behind-The-Scenes At RAW This Week

As noted, while Paul Heyman had more of an influence on WWE RAW than usual as part of the transition to his new role as the Executive Director of RAW, a legitimate title he now holds behind-the-scenes in WWE, the consensus coming out of Monday night was that the show was still very much Vince McMahon's.

Ultimately, it was obviously still viewed as Vince's show as a whole, as all final decisions were made by the WWE Chairman.

Essentially, Heyman had more influence in terms of organizing all of the ideas and pitches and deciding what will get handed over to Vince to review.

During the actual broadcast on the USA Network from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas on Monday night, Heyman sat with Vince behind-the-curtain at the Gorilla Position throughout the duration of the show.

We will keep you posted as more information regarding Paul Heyman's transition to his new role as the legitimate Executive Director of WWE RAW continues to surface.
