Paul Heyman has reportedly been pulled from WWE Talking Smack
According to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Paul Heyman being pulled from the show is a permanent move. Last week, Pat McAfee joined Kayla Braxton as co-host of the program.
There’s no real reason for it past a company decision and Heyman’s interplay with talent on some of the episodes was the most compelling talking stuff done on WWE shows
Paul Heyman served as co-host of the show since last November. It’s unknown if McAfee will be the permanent co-host moving forward.
It’s unknown how WWE plans to handle Talking Smack and RAW Talk once the company goes back on the road. Talking Smack airs the next day, and they could wait until the arena is cleared before filming. The reason why they air the next day was a request from FOX, the network didn’t want fans on the West Coast to watch the show before SmackDown aired.
