This week’s episode of Monday Night Raw will emanate from the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. A new era will begin from Monday as Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff will start their new roles as Executive Directors of Raw & SmackDown Live, respectively.
With just two weeks left for the Extreme Rules PPV, it will be interesting to see how Paul Heyman will embed himself into the picture and improve the ratings for Raw.
While the Universal & Raw Women's title pictures are already set up, WWE will have to address the situation of the United States & Raw Tag Team Championships. It's possible AJ Styles & the Usos will be the challengers for the titles as they secured pinfall victories over the current champions.
We will also hear Roman Reigns' take on the Undertaker saving him from Shane McMahon & Drew McIntyre last week. The fans will also be excited to see what the 24/7 Champion R-Truth will do to keep the title around his waist. With all that in mind, here are the fou burning questions before this week's episode of Raw.
As the former president of ECW, Paul Heyman knows how to run a show if given complete creative freedom. His out of the box approach in to pro-wrestling has produced many iconic moments in the history of the industry.
Heyman has also been the lead writer for SmackDown from July 2002 to February 2003. Heyman himself stated on his 2014 WWE documentary “Ladies and Gentleman, My Name is Paul Heyman” that the SmackDown episodes he wrote had beaten Raw in terms of ratings on multiple occasions.
With a profound background in the industry, Paul Heyman has all it takes to turn things around for the WWE. We will find out in this week’s Raw how the new Executive Director will shake things up for the red brand on his first day in the job.
