It’s a blank slate. WWE is a bit different than the rest of the wrestling promotions in the world. The company has more resources and options available than any other, including the amount of television time that they have on hand. That means they are going to need something to fill in that time and now we are seeing some interesting details on how some of their television content is created.
Newly signed WWE creative writer Kenice Mobley appeared on the June 6 edition of the Asian Not Asian podcast to talk about her signing with the company. Mobley was signed to WWE on June 3 and was not required to know anything about WWE. Instead, Mobley was hired due to her experience in film production and comedy writing. Mobley was only familiar with a handful of names and did not know if Bobby Lashley’s last name was Lashley or Ashley. Mobley is part of the Monday Night Raw team and it is not clear if she has officially started actively working or not.
This is what Mobley is coming into. Check out some of what Monday Night Raw has been doing as of late:
Opinion: First of all, Mobley hasn’t done anything wrong and it isn’t going to be fair when she is criticized for not knowing anything about WWE. She is a writer who applied for a job and was hired by WWE, which isn’t a bad thing. In this case, I can’t say I’m surprised whatsoever as WWE has a habit of not caring about wrestling backgrounds these days, which probably explains why their shows are not as popular anymore. The wrestlers have personalities and characters which need to be treated separately rather than being thrown together by someone who has no idea what is going on. This is on WWE, and that isn’t surprising.
Is this a problem? What is it going to mean for WWE? Let us know in the comments below.
