Paul Heyman is the Chief Executive Officer of Raw. His decisions weigh heavily as he responds directly to Vince McMahon. He seems to have his eyes on some of the people he wants to push too.
Heyman wants Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy’s dispute to put them both. This is something we covered earlier. Dave Meltzer expanded on this during Radio Wrestling Observer, explaining that there are others that Heyman wants to push as well.
Charlotte Flair and Drew McIntyre are also largely on Paul Heyman’s radar. That could be one reason why McIntyre cut a promo on Raw around 2020 to be his take. Heyman also has his eye on Ricochet to do great things.
WWE wants to raise Superstars like Ricochet, Buddy Murphy, Aleister Black, Charlotte Flair and Drew McIntyre. This is the plan for 2020 as they build new Superstars and reinforce those they already have.
I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things guide me.
