Source - Zeb Colter & Paul Heyman Consulted For WWE Raw Script

We got an unconfirmed tip that Vince McMahon consulted both Zeb Colter and Paul Heyman backstage at this week's Monday Night Raw about the writing of the show. The tipster emphasized the lack of consultation from Stephanie McMahon.

Speaking of which, WWE continues to incorporate real-life elements into their programming. Stephanie's bit where she corrected Kaitlyn in front of the Divas for interrupting her [on Monday Night Raw] was based on a real-life incident.

I will work to confirm this tip but it doesn't sound far fetched. There are known problems within the writing department (See also - Head WWE Creative Team Writer Leaving After Less Than Three Months) and Heyman has been consulted before.  Colter's stock is very high and he has a writing background as he scripted many segments for TNA earlier in the 2000s.

    What was the real-life situation?

  • Jesse Sherwood

    If this report is true, then that explains a lot of the segments quality in my eyes, especially the Divas segment, since Dutch helped create TNA’s Knockouts division.

  • The Ignored Monster

    Wow I’m surprised that Vince’s massive ego would allow Heyman to help.

    dutch and heyman as wwe creative is the best thing they can do

  • The Breaker

    Heyman and Dutch(Zeb) are two of the better wrestling minds in the industry today, and should be regularly advising the creative team in some official capacity. As great as their work has been in their respective on-screen roles, I would be even more excited for what they could contribute to the product from behind the scenes.
