Sean Waltman Weighs in on WWE Hiring Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman


This week on Sean Waltman‘s Podcast, Sean discussed the recent WWE hirings of Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman as Executive Directors of WWE Raw & SmackDown:

Regarding WWE hiring Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman as Executive Directors:

“I am happy for Paul and happy for Eric, cause I really like them both. And there’s a good reason for why they were chosen. I mean there is a track record there. Eric’s a little bit different obviously, Eric wasn’t really the creative guy, so I am curious to see how this plays out for him or how Smackdown looks with him at the helm. We got a little bit of a taste of how Raw is going to look like with Paul there and so far I think it was a pretty good review on Raw last night…. This is just from my point of view, how I always saw it. What Eric was really smart about was picking guys that were brilliant at the things that he wasn’t…He hasn’t even had a week on the job yet…on the other hand, you kind have an idea on what a Raw is going to look like. You could smell Paul Heyman’s scent all over the show last night. As far as Raw goes last night I was happy with that. The first week for Paul, seemed like a good one. And you gotta understand, they just can’t {change things} overnight, there has to be a transition, you just can’t all of a sudden halt storylines, it has to be eased into.”

Waltman pitches ‘RAW UNSCRIPTED’:

“I have an idea. Have you ever seen with network shows where they will do like a special?— I think they should do an episode of Raw like that. And promote it as this, RAW UNSCRIPTED, a whole episode where everyone just kinda goes out there. They produce their own matches, they go out there and say what they want to say without being scripted, just give them bullet points and watch how many people tune in to see that… RAW UNSCRIPTED.”
