WWE is looking for a new “lead writer” for Raw and SmackDown. This caused us to wonder if anyone is out the door, and we asked about it. What we discovered was an even more interesting piece of information.
Ringside News has learned that the term “lead writer” could apply to a couple different positions. One line of thinking is that the company is looking for someone to put in charge of continuity.
A tenured member of the creative team told us that the term “lead writer” in WWE is “the same as a Vice President job in corporate world. It can mean many different things.”
The company put out a search for someone in charge of “continuity” in March of 2019. We asked about this position and whether WWE filled it. We were told, “Multiple times. Those people never last.”
WWE seemingly always has open positions in the creative team. The new opening for “lead writer” got a lot of attention. As of this writing, it’s really anyone’s guess what the company has in mind.
