WWE is a global juggernaut in the world of professional wrestling, which means that there are a lot of components that make up the company – especially when it comes from the writing department. Now an ex-WWE writer questioned why anyone from the company is sharing scripts.
This week’s episode of Monday Night RAW was worthwhile show for a lot of reasons. This is especially because CM Punk had a memorable promo segment on the show, where even name-dropped Mickie James, which she certainly appreciated.
Punk would then go on to have a memorable promo back-and-forth battle with WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, where Rollins really tried to get under CM Punk’s skin.
One of the biggest stories coming out of the promo was the fact that it had no producers credited to it. This is simply because they weren’t needed to produce the segment at that time. In light of this, former WWE writer Brian Gewirtz took to Twitter and raised questions concerns about the whole ordeal.
Gewirtz stated that when there is no physicality, therefore no producer is assigned to the segment but that does not mean there isn’t a writer working with talent. More importantly, Gewirtz questioned who within the company would even be sharing such scripts and rundowns in the first place.
”This is so stupid. When there’s no physicality, there’s no producer assigned to segment. Been that way forever. Doesn’t mean there’s not a writer working with talent. The bigger question: why is anyone within the company sharing scripts/rundowns with anyone outside the company?”
CM Punk has also confirmed his ongoing involvement with Monday Night RAW, and he recently dropped Royal Rumble bombshell on the show, so fans are more concerned about that than any sort of leak in the first place.
What’s your opinion on what Brian Gewirtz said? Do you feel he was asking a legitimate question? Should scripts be leaked online? Let us know in the comments section below!
