WWE has a lot of things that they need to get in order when creating a television broadcast. The script is very important. The company has changed how they go about that once again.
Paul Heyman’s firing from the company shook things up backstage, but now they are back to the way they were before to a certain extent. The larger writing team has been split once again.
Following Paul Heyman’s exit as Executive Director of Raw, the two main roster writing teams were merged together. A new process was erected which you can read a detailed report about here. All writers were then reminded on a constant basis that they were on the same team.
Ringside News has learned that the writing teams are back to being brand specific once again. There are “very few exceptions” where someone would be asked to write for both shows. They made the switch back this last month.
Everything is still under Bruce Prichard as the Executive Director of both main roster shows.
Things are always changing backstage in WWE to keep things fresh and try to figure out a solution to make things work. If you start to notice a bigger difference between the Raw and SmackDown it might have to do with who is writing the show.
