Paul Heyman addresses potentially taking over the creative end of WWE SmackDown Live.
This idea came about earlier this month when WWE Hall of Famer Bully Ray made it known that Heyman should take over as head writer of the show when it airs on FOX in October.
Heyman spoke with ComicBook.com about a wide range of topics including this possibility. While he didn’t answer the question, he did seem somewhat interested in a role like that.
“I have interest in anything that serves the product.” He would note whether that’s performing with Brock Lesnar, or producing Lesnar, or working with Ronda Rousey. He would add that includes any of the new talents that are about to explode in 2019 and 2020.
“I serve at the pleasure of the WWE audience and so that everyone knows I’m not just paying lip services with that statement. Please note, I didn’t give the politically correct, public relations statement of ‘I serve at the pleasure of the WWE Universe.’ I meant what I said, I serve at the behest and the pleasure of the WWE audience.”
Heyman noted that anything he can do to deliver to fans or a better product that “would be a more forward-thinking presentation, a more innovative approach to what WWE should be moving forward then that’s what I’m interested in being involved in.”
