– Stephanie McMahon recently told RAW head writer Brian Gewirtz and SmackDown head writer Michael Hayes that she wants to bring in more creative writers. They started looking for new writers last week and she told Gewirtz to reach out to anyone he knew at MTV.
On a related note, the new writer that took over for John Carle is said to be treading on thin ice. WWE’s writer’s assistants are usually very unqualified but given tasks that far exceed what they are capable of so the turnover rate ends up bring high.
