WWE started shaking things up in a huge way backstage as they’ve trimmed down Paul Heyman from the Executive Director’s role on Monday Night RAW. This could be bad news for some of the young talents who expected a big push, moving forward.

The entire process of each superstar’s direction would be different as both WWE writing teams for Raw and SmackDown now works under the same roof.

Changes Evident On WWE Raw & Smackdown After Paul Heyman's Departure 1 now exclusively reports how the new restructuring at backstage might be going to work in the WWE. Writers will be assigned to different people and storylines on Raw and SmackDown. This will bring some “reshuffling” to the context as well as changes in stories, backstage as well. Basically, some of the stories will begin in a new way and through a new writer.



The source informed that WWE doesn’t plan to end the brand extension. Raw and SmackDown Superstars will be kept, separated as they are right now. That could change depending on the situation and whether the TV ratings continue to fall down. It was noted that “at the moment, the rosters are separate. I don’t think that will change, but you never know in this environment.”


Although, Paul Heyman was suddenly fired from his top spot of Monday Night Raw, the move was evident to happen, at some point. Vince McMahon couldn’t have patience in Heyman who was focused on building new Superstars and thus lost the TV ratings, consistently following WrestleMania 36. The Boss was very much unhappy with this.
