Paul Heyman on possibly taking over the role of SmackDown head writer

Paul Heyman on CM Punk

A lot of people consider Paul Heyman’s time as the head writer of SmackDown to be the best years of the show and many of them want Heyman to take over the creatives when the show moves to Fox later this year.

During a recent interview with ComicBook.com to promote this week’s episode of Raw, Heyman discussed a number of things and he seemed to be open to this idea.

Paul was asked about the talk of him leading SmackDown once again and answering the question, the former ECW Owner said that he is ready to do anything he can to deliver a better product to the audience:

I serve at the behest and the pleasure of the WWE audience. Anything that I can do to deliver to them a better product, a more forward-thinking presentation, a more innovative approach to what WWE and or sports entertainment should be in 2020, 2021, 2022 etc., moving forward, that’s what I’m interested in being involved in.

WWE has been testing out new ideas in recent times. With AEW putting on a great show at Double Or Nothing, the company should also try to step up their game and putting Paul Heyman as in charge of creative seems to be an idea which is worth giving a shot..

Do you think WWE should make Paul the creative head of SmackDown when the show moves to Fox this fall? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

    Don’t talk about it, go to Vince and Ask for the Position… it’s not that hard and yes, it’s that simple.

    You are right to a degree, but we have seen from history, when Heyman was in charge of writing Smackdown before the show was so much better than RAW and was getting some of the best critical reaction it has had in years, but Vince being Vince removed him out of pettiness.

    I know Vince interferes, but if the recent reports are true, the biggest problem HHH has with Vince is he believes he actually listens to people too much with ideas, quite the opposite to what we have always been lead to believe.

    I doesn’t matter who the head writer is when vince makes the final call.

    The head writer can have all the best ideas in the world, but if vince doesn’t like it, it doesn’t matter. That’s why so many writers come out after they leave voicing their exasperations.
