In an interview with ESPN, Paul Heyman talked about losing his role as the Executive Director of WWE RAW:

"I served at the pleasure of the Chairman Vince McMahon and there came a day I was no longer at the pleasure of the Chairman Vince McMahon. When I took the role of Executive Director, I made an agreement with Vince McMahon. I want this job as long as every morning Vince McMahon woke up, he said thank God or whatever deity he subscribes to [that] Paul Heyman is looking after the store on Raw. And the day that Vince McMahon didnít wake up and feel that way, I didnít want the job anymore. Iíve been in a similar role when Vince was not happy with me and itís a miserable existence. I didnít want it and apparently on that day on that given time and given moment, Vince didnít wake up that morning thanking whatever deity he subscribes to that Paul Heyman was in charge of Raw. We left with a smile, a handshake, and a hug. Absolutely no harsh feelings and actually better feelings about each other because of the way that it ended because itís ended miserably before. And proof positive of that is on the quarterly earnings call, when asked about Paul Heyman, Vince McMahon didnít say Ďeh, we needed a new vision, eh we needed someone else, eh he ran his course, eh he was great but we had to go with this other person.í Vince McMahonís only comment was ĎI thought he did a great job creatively.í My run in terms of serving at the pleasure of the chairman was up and then this opportunity presented itself both for me, for Roman and for WWE and we all jumped on it."
