Paul Heyman is no longer heading up RAW’s creative as the Executive Director of that brand.

WWE announced today that Bruce Prichard will now oversee both shows. Heyman will remain as Brock Lesnar’s advocate and continue to be an in-ring performer. WWE says the move is to streamline the creative writing process.

Check out the official statement below that was issued to WrestleZone:

In an effort to streamline our creative writing process for television, we have consolidated both teams from Raw and SmackDown into one group, led by Bruce Prichard. Paul Heyman will concentrate on his role as an in-ring performer.
