WWE has announced the appointment of Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman as the Executive Directors of SmackDown Live and Monday Night RAW respectively going forward.
Heyman will be running RAW, while Bischoff will be in charge of SmackDown. The two will be working in what appears to be off-screen roles to help develop the creative side of WWE RAW and WWE SmackDown Live going forward. The two will be bringing their own distinct ideas for the development of each brand.
What this means for the new Wildcard rule, we can’t say, but there might be a declaration about what it means for the brand split going forward.
The news has surprised everyone including the current WWE wrestlers, so let’s check out their reactions!
