WWE writes five hours of live programming every week and plenty more taped content as well. They need writers to help pen those words and the company is currently on the look for new help.
Being a writer in WWE can’t be easy. Jon Moxley commented how Vince McMahon fires writers and producers on a regular basis, but there are still people who would love that gig. WWE even released a little bit of a recruitment video detailing what it’s like to be a writer for the company as well which you can check out here.
As listed on the WWE Corporate Careers page, the responsibilities of the kind of writer they’re looking for would include:
• Develop clearly defined yet emotionally complex characters for a diverse group of WWE Superstars
• Script descriptive, thought-provoking, edgy, creative storylines for Monday Night RAW, SmackDown LIVE as well as select programming on the WWE Network
• Collaborate with a team of road and home-based writers to create compelling Monday Night RAW and Smackdown LIVE stories that capture a global audience fitting multiple demographics
• Provide punch-up for specific scripted segments as well as review the totality of entire episodes for continuity and flow
• Incorporate consumer insights and social media to deliver impactful storylines that are consistent with the WWE brand and each talent’s skills and history”
It was also noted that having an understanding of WWE’s product “is a plus,” however as we have seen in the past it is not a breaking point if an incoming writer has no previous knowledge of WWE’s product.
