Paul Heyman explains why he won’t discuss anything he did during his tenure as Raw Executive Director



Paul Heyman continues to make the media rounds and spoke with Bleacher Report about his time as Raw Executive Director.

Earlier this year, Vince McMahon decided to remove Heyman from this role. Bruce Prichard took charge of both Raw and SmackDown.

Heyman stated in a previous interview that his exit in this role came down to a previous agreement with the WWE Chairman. He also didn’t want to end things on a bad note, which played a factor in the removal.

In this new interview, Heyman was asked about the exit, which he gave similar comments about it, but also noted that he wouldn’t talk about the details while in that role.

This includes AJ Styles leaving Raw for SmackDown over issues he had with Heyman due to the releases of Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson.

"In the 50 or so weeks that I was the executive director of Monday Night Raw, I never discussed being the executive director of Monday Night Raw, and the reason why is because when you're in that position, you're privy to the top echelon, inner-sanctum of the inner workings of WWE," he said.

"Along with that position comes an expectation of confidentiality and secrecy. I never violated that confidentiality or secrecy while executive director, which is why I didn't do any interviews while executive director.

He continued: "I won't discuss anything I did as executive director, whether it's something worthy of praise or criticism, because I will respect the responsibility that I had to keep everything that I did as executive director secret or confidential, whether that's in the face of criticism or praise that has been bestowed upon me."

Heyman also talked about his pairing with Roman Reigns, Ronda Rousey’s future, Brock Lesnar, and more. Check out the full interview here.
