Paul Heyman had his own choices of who he wanted to push on RAW. Those Paul Heyman guys and girls could be in some trouble after his firing.
Heyman was in charge of SmackDown years ago when they had the famous SmackDown Six. Edge, Rey Mysterio, Chris Benoit, Kurt Angle, Chavo Guerrero, and Eddie Guerrero were featured in a ton of amazing matches during that era.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that there was a new joke going around WWE about who Paul Heyman booked this time. While the last time he booked the SmackDown Six, this time he pulled people out of catering.
There was a joke that nearly two decades ago Heyman built Smackdown around the so-called Smackdown Six. And that now he was building Raw around the Smackdown Catering crew.
Names such as Andrade, Zelina Vega, Buddy Murphy, Aleister Black, and Apollo Crews were mentioned as people who Paul Heyman really got behind. He was also a huge fan of AOP.
We’ll have to see how Paul Heyman’s exit changes the red brand. There is definite reason to worry for anyone who currently thinks that they are one of Paul Heyman’s favorites.
