Some of the usual stories (and some new ones) were confirmed on Wade Kellers Pro Wrestling Post-Show when a close friend of three WWE writers called into his show after Monday Night Raw.
.
Here are things said on the podcast by the close friend of three current WWE writers:

WWEs problems are not the fault of the writers. No one should rip on WWE creative. They have some of the most brilliant, unbelievable cool ideas that Ive ever heard He was told, Were writing for an audience of one and never forget that [and if not] youre out of here.

The most frustrated person in the back every single night is Triple H. Hell always take, especially the NXT guys, under his wing. It looks like hes consoling them. It looks so much like he was the most frustrated person in the building every single night.

The Wild Card Rule was not in the script on the morning of the show.

The Superstar Shake-Up changed week to week and it didnt pan out how it was originally laid out months prior. Everything changed because Vince just decided to change it.

He talked about the turnover with so many backstage people quitting or being fired.

SmackDown and Raw writing teams are the same for both shows. They used to be separate but that changed recently after the Shake-Up.

The caller emphasized that the problems in WWE are not creatives fault and Vince McMahon is the one person who deserves the blame.

Vince wants suggestions from everyone but it never gets on TV. 99 out of 100 times you can come up with an idea for Vince and it wont be used.

The entire creative team has pitched to have Raw and SmackDown look completely different with different production, a different way of shooting things, etc. and McMahon shoots it down.

Vince McMahon doesnt keep track of what is going on with NXT. He maybe watches Takeover shows.

The writers say he just watches WWE and works out and is not aware of things going on in the real world.

The writers say there is no chance of Vince stepping down.

Dana Brooke has been the hardest worker for the last 3 years. She goes to the Performance Center, she shows up early and helps set up the ring and she gets in the ring so she can get better. Creative will pitch something for her and she gets nothing up until recently with MITB.

The caller offered to tell Wade Keller off the air of some cool storylines that were pitched and never used.

The writer he talked to said, were all working for Dana Warrior and its really awkward.

The WWE-Fox contract prohibits Fox from moving the show to FS1 even if the ratings drop.

One writer is very close to quitting because he is so unbelievably unhappy and many of the writers are paranoid and think they are close to being fired.

Its such a toxic atmosphere and its all because of one person.

When Neville walked out, there was a crazy shouting match and he flipped out on Vince McMahon and that was the last time they saw him. The writers praised Neville for being so easy to work with.

Ideas never pan out as originally planned because writers will come up with stuff and then Vince loses interest after a week or two. He used Mojo Rawley as an example.

The money is good and its a dream job for many writers but it gets frustrating. The talent is very unhappy and people are trying to get out of their contracts.

The writers say Bruce Prichard is a pleasure to work with. Hes a funny guy and a pleasure to work with but hes not getting through to Vince either.

Shane McMahon, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have tried to talk to Vince but it hasnt worked.

The people on the writing staff listens to podcasts and they hear fans bashing them. It breaks their heart, he said.

Vince is in the announcers ear to a sentence and he gets on them for tiny mistakes.

On Sami Zayn: Thats not Sami Zayns promos. Thats Vince McMahon talking through Sami Zayn.

There are 37 total writers and they are now working on both shows.

NBCUniversal and FOX both want the top stars.

Andrade went into Vinces office and asked for a legit push. Vince looked at him and said, learn some English and get back to me. Andrade spoke some English last week and hes been taking English lessons.

The Firefly Fun House stuff is all Bray Wyatts idea. Bray is described is an absolute genius and he helps other wrestlers with their promos. Hes one of the best guys in the locker room.

The writers he talked to say they loved when there was a real brand split.

He mentioned The Revival/Usos storyline being done because Vince just thinks its funny.

Some of the writers think Road Dogg will eventually end up in AEW. (Note: Road Dogg is currently on hiatus and theres no word on when he will be back or what he would be doing if he returns).



all the more reason to stop watching. idek one match for mitb which i just saw is this weeknd

Impact Wrestling Looking To Secure New Television Deal
 
Impact Wrestling searching for a new TV deal in the United States this coming Fall.
 
Impact Wrestling officials are looking to secure a new TV deal in the United States to air their weekly flagship show this coming Fall. According to a report by PWInsider, Impact has had issues with their current network, Pursuit Channel, which has led to them wanting to make a change.
 
The media outlet reports that the promotion wants a better home for their TV show as it’s no secret that Pursuit is not available in as many homes as television networks such as Pop, Destination America, and SPIKE (now known as Paramount Network) that they’ve had in the past.
Incidents such as Pursuit being slow to respond to Impact’s requests, and listing the two-hour show as four separate 30-minute episodes have been part of “the latest in a long line of headaches.”
The most recent issue came last week when fans watching Rich Swann and Michael Elgin in the main event didn’t see the end of the match as the Pursuit Channel went to commercial and kept running commercials instead of returning to the broadcast.
This led to Impact having to apologize for the error and added the full show to IMPACT+ app immediately. Impact announced their TV deal with Pursuit back in January.
This is all hilarious seeing as Anthem owns Impact and the pursuit channel
