Backstage news on Paul Heyman's influence on tonight's WWE Monday Night Raw



Dave Meltzer reported today that there will be more influence tonight from Paul Heyman on Monday Night Raw. He's actually had his fingerprints on some storylines for a while but he will have more influence beginning tonight now that he has been named the Executive Director of the brand.

Meltzer noted that tonight's episode will not be his complete show. The same would apply for tomorrow night with Bischoff and fans will likely not see his fingerprints on SmackDown Live until after the Extreme Rules pay-per-view in a couple of weeks.

Bischoff is scheduled to be at SmackDown Live since the ad with him on it was accidentally sent out on Friday and Vince McMahon does not to false advertise him.

Meltzer also added that both Heyman and Bischoff will have an influence on long-term booking. Heyman will continue his on-air role as Brock Lesnar's advocate and Bischoff will not have a television presence, at least not as of now.
