Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff to run WWE TV

If this is true, then things could definitely be turning around.

Also could see this being a proactive move to stop them from going to AEW

I doubt the solution to the future is in 1996 but I applaud them for making a genuine effort.

If these are legit creative roles and not onscreen heel figures just a reminder it all still funnels thru Vince at the end of the day, both won't exactly have free creative reign.

The announcement today that Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff have signed on with WWE to become Executive Directors of the Raw and Smackdown brands is a legitimate announcement, not a storyline situation.

WWE has been pursuing Heyman to come on board officially in their corporate circles as far back as February, PWInsider.com can exclusively confirm. An offer was issued to Heyman to come on board full-time as a top member of the creative team around the same time Bruce Prichard was brought back as a Senior Vice President but the conversations were slow in progressing. Heyman had been working on certain storylines and with certain talents, including Ronda Rousey, Brock Lesnar, Alexa Bliss and many others dating back far before that point. He's been in the inner circle when it comes to the creative process for some time without an official title. He and WWE have been circling around this deal for a long time and finally came to terms recently.

The Eric Bischoff deal came together within the last several weeks. Bischoff has been working on pre-production of the planned Netflix Hulk Hogan biography film and had a slew of personal appearances booked. Over the last week, he quietly began canceling those appearance dates, so that is likely when he came to official terms with WWE. We are told he will be working directly with FOX as WWE builds their relationship with Smackdown's new home. To say this is a massive return to form for Bischoff is a grand understatement. We are told that WWE approached him about the role and that his previous work in collaborating with Turner Broadcasting. Spike and other networks in building past TV series was one of the reasons Bischoff was pitched for the position.

We are told that they will be overseeing all aspects of their individual series, answering directly to Vince McMahon. They are now the top of the pyramid, respectively, for Raw and Smackdown but obviously McMahon will always have the last say. One WWE source compared their roles to Paul Levesque's in NXT in that they will be in charge, but it's still Vince's company.

Heyman is expected to continue his role as Brock Lesnar's advocate.

There is no word yet whether Bischoff will appear on camera, but given how good of a performer he is, one would think it's just a matter of time.

Vince has finally gotten with the times and realized the Attitude Era doesn't need to be rehashed anymore. So now he's rehashing the Ruthless Aggression Era.

When are Rico, Rodney Mack, and Candice Michelle returning?

While I am skeptical since Vince has final creative say and that hasn't been a good thing for a long time -- I do hope this ends the 'Wild Card Era' and we get definitive rosters again.

All depends on how much reign they have. A fresh take can be good, but can also be bad.... Heyman has at least been in the business recently, whereas Bischoff has just been doing the podcast and personal appearance loops....

Paul Heyman isn't a bad idea - but I have my doubts about Bischoff, given what happened at the end of WCW/his TNA run, and that he's said many times he's not great at creative.

Like E as a smarmy heel, though.

And we're meant to believe that Micromanaging Vince still won't have the final say? Doubting it.

If they can run the shows with their own vision but with Vince’s final say it could be huge. I think the problem may be the PG environment.

Vince's final say and micromanaging is what will make it a waste of time, if they had full control to do what they wanted for a few weeks we might see some results. What have they to lose in the long run? Can't be any worse than the shit wwe have been pumping out for an age.

Bischoffs struggle has always been reigning in the talent. He wont have that this time. Im optimistic.

Remember that awful millennial promo that Ronda cut about Becky Lynch who is two days OLDER than Ronda?

That was Heyman's idea.

Doesn't inspire me with a lot of hope that Heyman himself isn't a bit out of touch, but we'll see.

Ronda still had to deliver it, which wasn't her strength. If someone wrote "do you smell what I'm cooking?" in a promo for The Great Khali...

I understand that. But I'm just not sure cutting a promo about somebody's age makes a lot of sense in that scenario.

I will say, this "wild card" shit isn't gonna work if Heyman and Bischoff intend on having two completely different feels for their shows.

Here's hoping they go back to enforcing the split.

I kind of feel like long-term this will fail, because I can't see Vince all of a sudden handing all this creative power to both and resisting the urge to re-write all of RAW and SDLive at the last minute instead.

Likely just another chapter in 'The Death of WWE' book for Bryan Alvarez.

I do think this kills the wild card nonsense, but I think it would be wise to let Easy E and Uncle Paul discuss who they want on their shows and then make switches.

As it stands I can't see Bischoff using say, Sonya Deville or Ember Moon well - but I could see Heyman doing so. Could see Heyman giving Drew more of a personality as well.

Eric Bischoff will be soaking this all up like it was his master plan from the start back in 1993.

Maybe it was. He's had his tongue down Prime Steph McMahon's throat, he had a pretty long run as a talent and now look. All he had to do was wait for Vince to go as insane as the old men he put out of business back in the 80's.

Everything's coming up Bischoff
