Both will report directly to Vince McMahon and the two positions are full-time executive roles, with no plans at the current time for this to be introduced as part of a TV storyline. It will be Bischoffs first time being involved in the WWE creative process.

We would love it if WWE put out wonderful programs every week. Bischoff, who is the executive director of Smackdown, will also work directly with executives from Fox when Smackdown moves there from United States of America in the fall. Bischoff will be working closely with Fox officials as the blue brand prepares to premiere on Fox Friday nights in October.

Bischoff being one of the most important people in WWE is still a wild idea to comprehend.

Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff will be taking over Raw and SmackDown behind the scenes, but we're told the change will be slow ... not immediate.

Below are Heyman's and Bischoff's WWE bios.

It was during the same "Monday Night Wars" of the 1990s that Bischoff, as the president of WCW, forced McMahon into producing what is considered the best run of content in company history thanks to the competition between promotions.

He later went on to join WWE's own creative team, and can now be seen on screen as the advocate for Brock Lesnar. In addition to several years spent as part of the creative team during a prior stretch, Heyman also featured as part of the broadcast commentary team in his early years with the company.

Regarding Bischoff's return, WWE looked at his previous work with Turner Broadcasting, Spike and other networks in building past TV series, and that was one of the reasons they hired him for the role, according to PWInsider. With Bischoff in charge, WCW's Nitro even defeated McMahon's Monday Night Raw in the television ratings for 83 consecutive weeks.

As noted, while they will still report to Vince, Heyman and Bischoff will essentially be running RAW and SmackDown.

After joining WWE in 2001, Heyman served in a variety of roles.
