They are kind of his minions. There are a lot of people involved in the process that creates a WWE television show. With so many things moving at the same time, there has to be one person running everything. That would be Vince McMahon, who is the be all and end all of decision making in WWE. At the same time though, there are a lot of people setting things up for him, but how does McMahon feel about them?
One of the most common criticisms you will hear about WWE is that they have too many writers who are not the best wrestling minds. WWE tends to not like the idea of having former wrestlers writing their wrestling television shows, but these writers do have experience in entertainment. There seems to be a strong disconnect though, and now we might know what part of that is.
Following Monday’s wedding angle involving Liv Morgan and Lana, a former WWE writer, Tom Casiello, responded to a tweet about the segment on Twitter. Casiello made it clear that whoever wrote the script did not matter, as McMahon himself was the only person who would have had final say over what was written. He made it clear that individual lines may have been different, but the overall point of the segment would have been the same, as any previous writing experience someone has is thrown out upon joining the writing staff. The writers have to learn to write in McMahon’s way and nothing else.
It’s a twist indeed. Check out the big moment from this week’s Monday Night Raw:
Opinion: I can’t say I’m surprised by this and it is a point that needs to be added to any argument about the writing staff. It’s easy to pile onto them but WWE is not the normal place for determining how a product comes together. Most places do not have one ultimate master who is going to determine every single thing like that. It’s a shame, but it causes a lot of the issues that take place in WWE today.
