As many of you know by now, Paul Heyman is no longer working as the executive director of RAW as he was fired from that role several months ago. Bruce Prichard is now the head of creative for both RAW and SmackDown. According to a report from Fightful, Heyman took the “rivalry” between RAW and SmackDown very seriously. He was focused on building up new talent such as Aleister Black, Austin Theory, Angel Garza and Apollo Crews.
Heyman also went through a lot of trouble trying to get Buddy Murphy on the show.
