Executive Directors of Raw and SmackDown Live respectively...

Seven days ago Paul Heyman was appointed the new Executive Director of Monday Night Raw, with Eric Bischoff assuming the same role on SmackDown Live.

Fans may have been wondering how WWE Superstars reacted to the appointments, with Fightful reporting there "wasn't some big wave of optimism" backstage.

Fightful report that one "longtime WWE wrestler" was wondering why Triple H wasn't given one of the roles, with another Superstar saying "that was some of the immediate chatter that they had heard."

Fightful also report that there was some detractors on the roster after the announcement was made, with an unnamed Superstar saying: "Vince is still in charge, so that's all you really need to know."

On Heyman, Fightful spoke to another roster member "who said that Heyman's familiarity with the roster already could prove to be a major positive point of his transition to Executive Director.

"The source said that Heyman has already proved helpful in his previous role, and has went out of his way to help talent beyond that," Fightful's report continues.

Regarding Bischoff, one of the Superstars Fightful spoke to was a big fan of ECW and WCW when they were growing up "but the wrestler also indicated that he thought the move was building up hope that won't live up to the hype because they don't expect anything to drastically change."
