Backstage news on what Paul Heyman wants to change in WWE

Quote:
Paul Heyman being named the Executive Director of WWE Raw was one of the biggest news stories of the year. Heyman will oversee the creative development of the show and report directly to WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.

Dave Meltzer reported in the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Heyman wants to have WWE backstage interviews contain less “fake dialogue” and come across more realistic as there would be more consequences with the actions of stars.

This includes wins and losses mattering more than they do now. The belief is that Heyman also wants injury angles to be taken more seriously.

Meltzer noted that McMahon will allow mid-card talent to sell a beating or injury angle that they’re involved with while top stars won’t because McMahon wants to protect his top stars and not have them appearing to be weak on television

Quote:
Since being named the new executive director of Raw, Paul Heyman's influence has started to get noticed. Whether it be physical segments involving talent or the Mike and Maria Kanellis segments, the man who innovated ECW is looking to do the same with WWE's flagship show.

That apparently also includes promo work.

According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Heyman has been trying to make backstage interviews come across as more realistic. Similar to what we saw with Drew McIntyre and Cedric Alexander on Raw this past Monday, Heyman wants there to be consequences to everyone's actions and for the atmosphere to feel authentic.

In the past, Heyman has worked with a number of wrestlers when it comes to in-ring and promo work including Charlotte Flair, Ronda Rousey and Aleister Black. Rousey had publicly talked in the past about Heyman working with her, including with some of her promos on Becky Lynch.

So midcard is still trash, and ME players are still Superman.

Nothing changing there.

Re: Backstage news on what Paul Heyman wants to change in WWE

Oh for fuck sake. I am so sick of every Meltzer based thread title starting with "Backstage News". It is not backstage news. It is speculation. Guesswork. Clickbait. Take your pick.

If he actually knew these things then it would not contain lines like "The belief is that Heyman also wants injury angles to be taken more seriously"

So same old, same old. Midcarders are treated like geeks and all the chosen one Main Eventers are unstoppable superheros.

"Less fake dialogue"

So basically that covers all 100% of WWE's verbal content then.

WTF is with Vince not wanting to sell injuries in fear of looking weak? Dude is weird.

Re: Backstage news on what Paul Heyman wants to change in WWE

Does Vince realize that injuries and selling those injuries actually helps put sympathy on the faces and helps your story to have legitimate stakes?

I mean Hogan sold a beating from Earthquake for 2-3 months or so. Yeah he was off filming a movie, but selling the injury made the story better.

Hogan also sold an injury for King Kong Bundy for a WrestleMania main event, of all things.

And do I have to mention Randy Savage selling a busted knee during his Mania VIII match with Flair?

Look, this shit works. I'm just saying.
