Vince McMahon’s sudden departure from might be excellent news for Paul Heyman if current studies are to be believed. Following the announcement that McMahon could be stepping down from all positions inside , Stephanie McMahon has been promoted to Co-CEO and Chairwoman, Nick Khan is now a Co-CEO and Paul “Triple H” Levesque will oversee the Creative workforce on prime of being the Head of Talent Relations. Heyman has dabbled with operating Creative prior to now, although he infamously butted heads with Stephanie again when he was overseeing SmackDown within the early 2000s.
However, based on PWTorch’s Wade Keller, that working relationship has noticeably improved within the years since then. He added that it is a state of affairs to control, however did not verify if Heyman could be becoming a member of the Creative workforce as many followers are actually hoping for.
“He ran ECW, he revolutionized the wrestling industry,” Keller stated. “Without him there is no Attitude Era, I don’t think. And then he has worked with WWE and he butted heads with Stephanie McMahon. As I’ve talked about in recent months, it seems like to people that have seen them that Heyman and Stephanie get along. You know like, genuinely, there’s a chemistry and a dynamic between them that’s very positive. And that’s very different than you know, 15-20 years ago. So, Heyman is someone to watch. He’s really, really smart. And he is a wrestling guy.”
“I’ve often wondered if he and Nick Khan have gotten close,” he added, speculating the Heyman/Khan relationship. “I don’t know how Nick Khan would feel equipped to deal with Paul Heyman given what he might hear about Paul Heyman over the decades, but Paul is not the same person he was 15-20 years ago. People say how him having kids really changed him and just growing up and maturing and now he’s the type who more scoffs at people who are like him — He scoffs at people who are like him at the age that they’re at now, more than being like them, if that makes sense. So you know, Paul is somebody to watch too. He’s so smart and he’s so connected to big names [such as] Brock Lesnar, Ronda Rousey [and] Roman Reigns. So depending on how things shake out, Triple H and Stephanie may be leaning on Paul, and he could be in their inner circle. And that would be quite a powerful trio of people who could take WWE into the next era on the wrestling side, Nick on the business side, and then Stephanie, Paul and Paul…So that’s something to watch.”
