The current WWE product has a lot of flaws including 50/50 booking, feuds that don’t go anywhere, teams splitting up for no reason and storylines not making sense. All of this has led to fans simply being tired of the company and the disinterest of the fans is reflected in the dwindling ratings of both main roster shows over the past few years.

WWE Creative has been blamed quite a lot for majority of the flaws seen in the current product delivered by the company. Now it seems the company even hires writers without any prior knowledge of pro wrestling.

While speaking on the ‘Asian Not Asian’ podcast, new Monday Night RAW writer Kenice Mobley talked about her new occupation in the company. Mobley claimed that WWE did not ask her if she knew anything about pro wrestling. Mobley also couldn’t recall the name of Bobby Lashley either.

“Yes, I have just been hired by WWE. Given the things that you know about me and my entire life and what I’m into, yes [that’s surprising]. Yes, also a surprise for me. They did not require me to know anything about wrestling but I do have a background in film production and comedy writing and they’re like, ‘Perfect. Come on in.’

So I am on the Monday Night Raw team. So there’s Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown and the people I know that are on it are Bobby — his name is either Bobby Ashley or Bobby Lashley and I really should know that. He’s like this giant Black guy and he and the people who are part of his crew, I know that they call — or at least as of last year, they called themselves The Hurt Business. The Hurt Business. They wear suits and they’re like, ‘We’re cool.’”

We wonder if WWE will finally rectify its numerous flaws, especially with it comes to producing repetitive content every week. With the company hiring writers with no experience in pro wrestling, it is certainly unlikely at this point in time.
