Vince on hiring Heyman & Bischoff as execs: “we’ve seen a big result already”
Vince McMahon Explains Why Paul Heyman & Eric Bischoff Were Hired As ‘Executive Directors’
McMahon recently spoke to investors during the WWE Q2 Earnings call.
One of the most interesting parts was when he spoke about why he hired Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff. As we all know, both were recently named ‘Executive Directors’ of WWE.
Here is what McMahon said:
“One the things that we’ve done is hire 2 Executive Directors, one for Raw and 1 for SmackDown and in doing so, it allows me to look at a longer-range story – our standpoint and also spend more time on talent development and not get into the weeds as much as I had to do in the past. That is a really, really good thing for a long-term as well as short-term. Actually, we’ve seen a big result already,”
“Why now question is a logical one. I can’t personally be in the weeds any longer and we have these 2 individuals who have a longer range of point of view and a developmental point the of view. Both of these individuals have extensive backgrounds in the business from various aspects and with the organizational aspects that they have and the depth of talent, executive talent we now attract is going to be really good for our business. And how much latitude they will have, that’s again it allows me to have a broader overview of things and escape from just getting on the weeds. So they’ll have a lot of latitude.”
