Has The Paul Heyman Era Of RAW Kicked Off?

If this was all planned by Paul Heyman then he kicked off his first 15 minutes in charge with a bang.

Last week we learned Paul Heyman was named the Executive Director of Monday Night RAW and was supposed to be in charge of the creative process of the show working directly under Vince McMahon. It was reported that Heyman would start the new role this week and it looks like that has happened.

Tonight’s Monday Night RAW kicked off with a Falls Count Anywhere match between Braun Strowman and Bobby Lashley. The match spilled out of the ring and all around the arena quickly. The two fought into the crowd and then ended up at the top of the stage. Strowman would then spear Lashley through the set crashing to the floor below and bangs, pops and booms would go off.

As this happened Corey Graves on the commentary would yell out “holy sh!t.” We briefly saw a camera shot from the stage through the hole in the set of the guys below and then we saw a very unconventional camera angle. The angle was high up, behind the stage and static for a few minutes. The commentary was silent and we just saw officials and EMTs tending to both men.

After the commercial, we saw Michael Cole called the situation “extremely serious” as both Bobby Lashley and Braun Strowman who were not moving were placed into two ambulances and taken out of the arena.

With Graves swearing on air, the unconventional camera angle and the silent commentary is all very different from what we have come to expect from WWE and this could be one of the first changes by Paul Heyman in an effort to make a possibly dangerous angle seems more dangerous then we may have thought at first.

Let us know what you thought of the segment and do you think it was very well done?
