WWE is a well-oiled machine or at least that is what they want you to believe. There are Superstars all over the backstage area and each one of them has a specific member of the creative team that they usually work with.
Mike Johnson said on PW Insider Elite audio that who works with which Superstar backstage is not an exact formula. Usually it depends on a could variables that can go on to change a Superstar’s entire career depending on who gets to work with them.
“I don’t think that there is a mathematical equation that defines exactly who ends up with let’s say No Way Jose when he is brought up or the EC3 or Heavy Machinery. I think what happens is they have the production meeting and talents are discussed. They’re brought up and questions are probably asked about them, ‘What do they know about them? What are their strengths and their weaknesses?’ And somebody whether it be Vince or Triple H or Road Dogg or Michael Hayes will say so and so why don’t you come up with some ideas?”
“Then they go from there. I’m guessing it’s a brainstorming session and ideas are tossed back and forth as opposed to which person gets assigned to them.”
“When it comes to new talents being assigned to producers, not just new talent, but in general that comes down down from upper management. Michael Hayes, Road Dogg etc.”
WWE might need to switch things up every now and then because sometimes things can get a little stale. It is always a good idea to make sure that the right people are paired up so that the creativity can really get flowing.
Sometimes they hit the mark, and sometimes they don’t. That’s the risk you take when writing a year-long television show with no off-season.
