Why WWE Ran the Ryback/Heyman Proposal Angle

According to The Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon wanted something with shock value to take place on Raw this week, in order to lure viewers away from Monday Night Football, which is how the Ryback/Heyman "proposal" angle came to be.

It's being said once Vince made the demand, a creative team member pitched the idea of Heyman "proposing" to Ryback, which would lead the audience to believe he might be proposing marriage. Instead, of course, Heyman proposed that Ryback be the next "Paul Heyman guy."
