WWE SmackDown Live recently experienced a big change backstage when Road Dogg stepped down from his position as Co-Head Writer of the blue brand. However, the show must go on and Paul Heyman could be a viable replacement.
While speaking to ComicBook.com, Paul Heyman addressed the possibility of taking over Road Dogg’s previous role on the blue brand. This prompted him to explain that he serves at the “pleasure of the WWE audience.” That might be a good tactic to take when writing for WWE television from now on.
“I serve at the behest and the pleasure of the WWE audience. Anything that I can do to deliver to them a better product, a more forward-thinking presentation, a more innovative approach to what WWE and or sports entertainment should be in 2020, 2021, 2022 etc., moving forward, that’s what I’m interested in being involved in.”
We will have to wait and see what happens next, but it’s hard to argue that SmackDown brought a better show than RAW this week. Perhaps they have some different minds backstage to shape the product, but it could be a lot more interesting if they simply gave Heyman control.
