Quote Source: PWTorch Newsletter

As of late Shawn Michaels has been becoming a regular at WWE production meetings. HBK recently spoke his mind on the creative team's apparent failure, in his opinion, to have anything better for him than Chris Masters after his loss to Hogan at SummerSlam. However, despite his opinion on the matter, Michaels has handled the situation professionaly in a manner comparable to that of his handling of the Hogan SummerSlam fued.

HBK isn't the only veteran wrestler to regularly attend WWE production meetings. Other wrestlers regularly in attendance are Triple H (obviously) and The Undertaker.

i can see why hbk should by annoyed with creative. and i can also see why he shouldnt be annoyed with creative. shawn in the last year as had  huge fueds with hogan and angle. and hes also gave the rub to batista and muhammed hassan. so being in a fued with masters makes masters look better. and it will only last for the length of a raw brand ppv anyway. not like hes missing out on a good opponent at one of the big four. i reckon angle, hardcore and flair probably go to creative meetings too. why have wwe hired hollywood scriptwriters anyway ? they know nothing about wrestling and it shows in some of the storylines they have.

I think having Shawn work with masters is a good thing and will hopefully improve Masters in the long run, just like how Flair is working a programme with Carlito up to Unforgiven, two veterans working with two rookies can only help the rookies cant it?

I think the whole thing with Masters sucks.  I don't care if he's new he's not interesting and he sucks.  He just some muscular guy who looks are all he has.  Shawn Michaels should be used for better things than to propping up a guy who probably won't even last very long in the WWE and if he does he'll just end up being a person they use just to fill time, and frankly shouldn't even be on my screen.  Unless they get a new gimmick for him, that's not so Narcisist(sp?) like I'll be annoyed with this guy.

But a lot of the creative does suck.  They don't know anything about a lot of the wrestlers history and they are putting people together who really aren't that great or don't really make any sense why they are wrestling each other.

WWE should be glad Shawn's a born again christian, cause if this was going on back in the day they'd have a big problem on their hands.

Quote WWE fired Rudy Fischmann last week; he was a WWE creative team member. He was told that he just did not “mix well” with the WWE system. One source in the company said Fischmann was considered a “mark” backstage. Even though the decision to release him was made a week or so earlier, the last straw came when he chewed out Ashley and Victoria after a botched match on the September 5 edition of RAW. However, one source said he was consoling them for even being put out there for match without warning. Nonetheless, that wasn’t the projected feeling Fischmann let off.

Fischmann worked previously in Hollywood producing documentaries and reality TV shows. He lasted about 4-months in WWE.

The writing team now consists of around ten people. There is a constant revolving door nature for this department, so most wrestlers barely have time to learn their names. Stephanie McMahon heads up the creative team which includes Michael Hayes, Ted DiBiase, and Dusty Rhodes. Dave Lagana heads up the SmackDown writing staff. In Brian Gewirtz’s absence Ed Koskie heads the RAW writing team. Four other writers known by wrestlers by their first names are Alex, David, Christopher, and Robert. Bruce Prichard also takes part in conference calls almost every week. There are plans for Lagana to be moved to primarily the New Media Department to work alongside Shane McMahon, so Rhodes may end up taking his spot as head SmackDown writer. Lagana’s move is considered a promotion. Court Bauer is working in the front office with a primary role being formatting Velocity. Gewirtz, former head RAW writer, is developing the script for a WWE Films movie being targeted for Kurt Angle in a starring role.

Dusty Rhodes has been spotted regularly at WWE headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut the past couple weeks. His official start date with the company was September 7 and he has been visible around the office ever since.

ten people for 4 smackdowns, four raws and a PPV every month doesnt seem alot. i like having million dollar man ted dibiase on the team. he was one of my fave wrestlers in the 90s and is very old school. he will get the action focusing on storylines and not stupid things that would never happen.

Reason you need a BA or BS is because they need to know that you can actually write.  But what I don't get is the minum two years of writing experience in TV, I mean seriously if you can write you can write.  Cause if that wasn't on there I'd actually apply.  But my thing is I know for a fact in recent years that the some of the writers they have hired and some of the people who work on the tape segments haven't any knowledge of WWE talent or Storylines.
