SourceWWE has named Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff as Executive Directors, Sports Illustrated has learned.
Heyman is set to become Executive Director of Monday Night Raw, while Bischoff will fill the same role for SmackDown Live. Both will report directly to WWE Chairman and CEO Vince McMahon.
WWE confirmed the news with Sports Illustrated, with an official announcement expected later today.
Holy shit, this is crazy news. I wonder what that would entail. If it is purely from a creative standpoint or if production and presentation is also involved. Heyman has never disappointed in a creative role and it will be exciting to see Bischoff back with some oversight.
