WWE RAW is going through a transitional period, but even the new Executive Director Paul Heyman has been transparent backstage when saying that it won’t be rapid process.
The company is focusing on bringing in lost fan base in a big way so more angles should be expected to capture fan interest. This could utilize a lot of things because in 2019 there are many different areas of creativity to explore.
Fightful Select reports that Paul Heyman has been in the middle of production meetings instead of running them at this point. It is said that Vince McMahon is “coming to grips with the fact that the program needs to be upgraded” as well. This could be a promising sign that things could be changing soon than later if McMahon can be properly convinced. However, others are not as totally optimistic.
Some we’ve talked with are still taking the “wait and see” approach, but there is more optimism as it relates to things after last week’s Raw.
WWE RAW could be a very exciting show tonight with some water cooler moments. The company needs people talking about the show the next day because for months people have seemed to be complaining about the same thing.
You can point blame at any number of things that is hurting WWE’s audience from Baron Corbin’s main event status to the emergence of AEW. The one thing WWE needs to do is shake things up and provided Vince McMahon can be convinced that it needs to happen some big changes might be on the way eventually.
