One thing that has been clear since Paul Heyman took charge of Raw is that he has his favourites, and also that he absolutely loves cuckold stories.
This past week on Raw, we saw one of Heyman’s pet projects, Buddy Murphy win the Raw Tag team Championships with Seth Rollins.
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, there are a few more people we should expect to see pushed in the next 12 months.
“I think the idea is — Paul Heyman is really high on Buddy Murphy — and having him in a tag team with Rollins I think that the idea — the idea is you can watch this thing evolve and it’s pretty clear. I mean Ricochet, Drew McIntyre, Humberto Carrillo, Andrade, and you know Aleister Black and Buddy Murphy are his guys, his projects.
“So, I mean that’s been the whole theme of the television show. I mean it’s always to get people over, but those are guys who are really being earmarked to get over.”
Andrade is another obvious star being pushed already this year, winning the United States Championship at the end of 2019 and it looks as though he’ll be holding it for a while.
Black, McIntyre, Ricochet and Carrillo are getting plenty of TV time, and it’s just a matter of time before they make a bigger impact on Monday nights.
