Communication is very important. There are a lot of people who work together to present what you see every week on WWE television. It may seem as simple as putting the wrestlers together in a ring and letting things go where they may, but it is a little more complicated than that. Sometimes you don’t get the intended story, and that is the case with a big story taking place in WWE at the moment.

The current Roman Reigns/Erick Rowan storyline, which has seen Rowan attack Reigns, possibly with some help, is said to have gone completely off the rails. According to The Wrap, the story is so far away from what it was originally planned to be that no one can explain how it was originally supposed to go. At the same time, according to Wrestling Observer Live, the SmackDown Live writers are not clear on the story either as Vince McMahon is writing the story and continues to change the script most weeks. There is no word on where the story is heading or when it will be ending.

The story took a turn this week. Check out Rowan attacking Reigns and someone else on SmackDown Live:


Opinion: This is something that can happen when you have so many voices on the same show. The story has been changed around so many times now that it is almost impossible to keep track of everything going on at once. There are only so many ways a story can go and WWE seems to be trying to figure out all of them for this one. I’m not sure how many more twists the story can take, but I’m worried about how long WWE plans to drag it out.
