WWE has a lot of things going on within the company to make sure they have several hours of television each week. Now we have a little more clarity about how things operate when it comes to making sure things appear on television as they are designed.

It was explained to Ringside News by a tenured member of the creative team that the “writer” for a segment is the person responsible for relaying the idea to Triple H. This is so Triple H knows “exactly what is happening in the segment, language used, who was saying what, and the timing of the lines.” The “writer” noted on run-sheets and other reports going around didn’t actually “write” what is said on television.

It was further explained to us that, “Roman and Heyman take care of their own segments. Just like Cena took care of his own, and Heyman Brock took care of their own.”

Producers are “responsible to the truck,” so they know what is happening in “the choreography of the segment so that the truck knows the camera shots.”


WWE needs to have this system in place to ensure that everything goes according to plan. Titles like “writer” and “producer” are used within WWE, but that doesn’t really mean what it implies in every traditional usage outside WWE.

We’ll have to see if Triple H, or a possible new owner down the line, changes things up. For now, that is how things work within WWE’s creative process.
