WWE has a lot of plans, but they don’t want people to know about them until the big reveal happens on television. This is getting even harder to do nowadays.
Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE is taking extreme measures to keep secrets and future storylines hidden. The fact is they’re just not telling people or giving false information for promotions so even their own employees don’t know what is happening to a large extent.
“What this is [because WWE is] so scared of anything getting out that they don’t tell anyone anything so therefore, all these people whether you’re in the live events department whether you’re in the — but they won’t tell anyone anything because they’re afraid it’s gonna get out and you can’t and I don’t know that you should run a wrestling company, I guess things get out when you don’t want them to.”
“[The Draft order leak] is a different kind of incompetence. That’s because someone put it up when they were told to put it up in alphabetical order. That’s not what I’m talking about. What I’m talking about is when you’ll do things and you have plans, but you won’t tell anyone your long term plans even though that means that your advertising is all out of whack.”
WWE has a lot of employees who might need to know things ahead of time. We’ll have to see how this strategy of keeping people in the dark pays off or whether it will just result in more miscommunication.
