Paul Heyman reportedly pushing for some big changes on WWE Raw

Fans may need to wait a while for changes to the WWE product but the good news is that there is a push being made to get rid of some of the silly and fake looking things you see on WWE television.

Dave Meltzer noted in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that Paul Heyman for Raw is pushing to have interviews with less of the fake dialogue and he wants them to come across more realistic.

Heyman also wants more consequences to things that happen, similar to how AEW is saying that wins and losses matter and that angles will not just happen and then be forgotten. Essentially, it looks like Heyman is pushing for more continuity on the shows.

There have been many complaints from wrestlers over the years about a big beatdown angle taking place on a pay-per-view (for example) and then the wrestler who was beaten up showing up on Raw as if nothing happened on the previous night.

They still have these problems as Braun Strowman was back on Raw just a couple of weeks after the big explosion angle when he and Bobby Lashley crashed through the Monday Night Raw stage.

Meltzer also reported that there is a movement to change the silliness on the show with the run-ins and the contrived reasons to take breaks in between matches so they can go to commercial.

It looks like there are changes in store for SmackDown Live as well. On the blue brand, there is a character makeover and new look coming for one of their younger stars. Click here for more on that story.
