WWE has seen a few memorable recurring segments throughout the history of the company. Bray Wyatt’s Firefly Fun House segments fascinated millions of fans, and now we must report that a writer who heavily influenced those segments’ creation has left the company.
Sean Sapp reported behind Fightful’s paywall that Nick Manfredini is no longer with WWE. Nick Manfredini was with WWE since 2010, and this departure was “fairly recent.”
When asking around about rumored looming WWE cuts, Fightful was told that hasn’t been something that has been discussed broadly within the company, but were told of a fairly recent departure.
Fightful Select has confirmed that Nick Manfredini left the company earlier this year. Manfredini had been with WWE for well over a decade, having joined the fold in the spring of 2010. Manfredini was heavily influential in the creation and creative of the Firefly Funhouse segments.
It was also reported that, “We have not learned of Manfedini left of his own volition or was let go.” Manfredini was reportedly known as “a guy within WWE who would often downplay credit on himself, but was often put over by Bray Wyatt himself to people backstage.”
Nick Manfredini’s WWE departure took place before Bray Wyatt left television due to his physical illness issue. It was not noted what led to the departure, or what Mandredini’s next steps are.
It’s also interesting to note that Nick Manfredini worked on the Howard Stern Show before his run with WWE started. Only time will tell where he goes next.
