Is this real? Has Vince McMahon finally let somebody else run the show? If the rumors are true, then Paul Heyman ran this past Monday’s RAW. The show saw oddly and awkwardly booked story lines and two appearances by Glenn Jacobs/Kane. The Franchise gives The Brand a look as to what a backstage is like run by Paul Heyman by channeling his EXTREME years and discusses Paul’s biggest strengths and weaknesses.

We also look back at Wrestlefest 97: 50 Years of Funk. This show was looked at to be Terry Funk’s retirement show not long after Funk’s most successful run in ECW and featured a massive card of superstars from all different promotions.
