Let me begin this article by saying that this is not a knock on Vince McMahon at all, to any degree whatsoever. All of us sports entertainment fans wouldn't even be watching our favorite pastime had it not been for the billionaire who rules the industry.
At the same time, Vince McMahon must have appointed Paul Heyman as the Executive Director of RAW because he brings certain things to the table that others, Vince McMahon included, overlook. We shall touch upon 5 of these skills in this article, dearest reader.
Feel free to voice your opinion, in the comments below. If you think that I'm wrong on any count, be sure to let me know your opinions too.
Here are 5 things that Paul Heyman, in my opinion, can do significantly better than Vince McMahon.
#5 Recognizes the talent of overlooked individuals
Over the years, Vince McMahon has been criticized for favoring a certain type of Superstar over the other, especially when it comes to a certain look and build. This may no longer be the case with Superstars like Finn Balor and Kevin Owens in the roster, but you reach a ceiling even if you're not a McMahon prototype. Paul Heyman is someone who has recognized that Superstars come in all shapes and sizes and can utilize talent far better.
This is especially true for the WWE of today, where you have talented individuals like EC3 and Bobby Roode not get any screen time at all, because there is such an abundance of talent on both RAW and SmackDown Live. As you can see from the Tweet linked here, Heyman has been an advocate (no pun intended) for Maria Kanellis and must be responsible for giving her (and Mike) TV time.
There are many Superstars through history that Heyman has backed all the way to the top. Some of them did not fit the McMahon mold.
