One such entity who got replaced as soon as WWE started doing live shows is Paul Heyman. During his conversation with Ariel Helwani, Heyman revealed that when Vince McMahon realized Roman Reigns will start doing dark matches, Heyman won’t be a part of Talking Smack anymore.

The Big Man wanted to ensure that The Wise Man was replaced even before it was absolutely necessary.

“The culture here (WWE) is ‘do it yesterday’. So the moment someone realized, ‘Oh, wait a minute. If we’re going to do live crowds again and Roman’s going to always be in the dark match main event, we need Heyman for that. So we can’t do the show there, has to be in the studio, and Heyman can’t be in the studio, you know we only have 3-4 weeks of Heyman on Talking Smack before we have to do something different…’ (Vince says) – ‘Get rid of him now.’ ‘Wait a minute, we still have 3-4 weeks to decide… ‘ (Vince says) – ‘Get rid of him now. That’s the decision. Start replacing him now’.”
