Earlier today, WWE announced that they would be combining the creative teams for both Raw and SmackDown led by Bruce Prichard, and that Paul Heyman would be focusing solely on his on-screen persona and would no longer be the red-brand’s Executive Director.
In an update from WrestleVotes, sources state that Raw has been a mess backstage, with certain changes coming up until the point of airtime. The report also mentions that Heyman is not the only one to blame for the disorder, but he will be the one taking the fall.
Regarding the creative change, source indicates that RAW has been a mess lately. At times recently the show has changed up to the point of air. While the blame isn’t solely on Heyman, he is the one taking the fall here. “It couldn’t continue like this” was an exact quote I got.

Heyman was hired as the Raw Executive Director back in June of 2019. He was a major component in pushing fresh talent like Ricochet, Apollo Crews, and Drew McIntyre.
