According to new reports, WWE writers are seemingly frustrated right now with the direction of the company’s booking choices. This is not the first time WWE writers have complained or showed frustration towards the company’s product. Former WWE writer Kevin Eck has expressed his frustrations while on staff at WWE Headquarters many times since his departure.
Dave Meltzer of F4Wonline.com and the Wrestling Observer Newsletter recently published a comment from one of the writers in regards to these frustrations. Most of the issues seem to come from how superstars are being booked, or not being booked on WWE television.
“One WWE writer this past week talked of frustration right now, saying that the company is constantly booking itself into corners and rarely give almost anyone consistent wins or positive momentum that they need to have upward mobility. Not like that’s anything that people haven’t said for a long time.”
Many have talked about the inconsistent building of new superstars over the last five years it seems. Most notably, King Barrett has been used as an example a lot as of late. WWE seems to want to push him one minute, but has him lose almost every match and appear weak on TV. This leads to fans not taking him seriously, and a drop in interest.
If booking like this continues to happen in WWE, writers and fans alike will either have to learn to live frustrated, grow to be indifferent, or stop writing and watching altogether.
Welp…I could see how that would grind someone’s gears…especially when they’re the ones having to write for the shows.
