Apparently, you should leave your awards at home. According to the latest edition of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, a member of the WWE creative team got in trouble for bringing an Emmy that she had won to a meeting.
Jennifer Pepperman won a Daytime Emmy for Outstanding Director of a Digital Drama Series, for her work on “After Forever” on Amazon Prime, on May 3. She showed up in Cincinnati with her newly-won Award, came to the production meeting before the show, and put the Emmy on the table as she came into the room.
Michael Hayes told her to put it away, and the mood of the room was that people thought that Pepperman traveled on the flight to Cincinnati with her award, just to show up and put it on the table during the meeting.
However, Vince McMahon just laughed it off because he was so busy making so many changes; however, it was the talk backstage. The feeling was that wrestling isn’t the soap opera world and she was showing off with something that doesn’t relate to wrestling.
Futhermore, even when Hayes asked her to put the award away, she didn’t take the the advice seriously. However, the feeling wasn’t that she was a bad person or writer, but that she was not understanding the culture of the pro wrestling business and people involved to do that.
Here’s what the writing team came up with for Raw this past week:
I don’t know if there is anything to this story, but it seems to me that Drama and WWE go hand-in-hand, don’t you?
