Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned Paul Heyman ran Raw this week behind the scenes due to Vince McMahon, Kevin Dunn and Triple H not being at the show.
Sources tell us Triple H is already in Orlando to prepare for NXT’s premiere on USA, which is why he was not at tonight’s show in Knoxville, Tennessee.
It’s unclear why Kevin Dunn and Vince McMahon were not present, but WWE’s head honcho recently said hiring Heyman and Eric Bischoff as Executive Directors would prevent him having to get “in the weeds” as much as he’s done in the past.
We’re told Michael Mansury, who is WWE’s VP of Global Television production, filled in for Dunn.
No word on whether McMahon and Dunn will be present tomorrow for SmackDown.
