In the ever-evolving world of professional wrestling, WWE has witnessed a significant transformation behind the scenes, and the effects of these changes are becoming increasingly evident on television.

One of the most notable alterations comes in the form of Lee Fitting taking over as Head of Media and Production, succeeding the longtime WWE head of production, Kevin Dunn. As Fitting’s influence begins to permeate the company, fans are witnessing a departure from the established norms in recent episodes of both RAW and SmackDown.

Fightful Select reports that the most conspicuous signs of this shift in approach were evident in two videos aired during recent episodes of RAW and SmackDown.

One segment featured Chelsea Green and Piper Niven at a club, confronting WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions Kayden Carter and Katana Chance.

Another showcased Butch on SmackDown, teasing a potential name change to Pete Dunne, revisiting his old character alongside Tyler Bate.

Additionally, a segment featuring Kevin Owens hyping his feud with United States Champion Logan Paul reflected the evolving style.

Behind these changes lies the influence of Jeremy Borash, who, under the guidance of Triple H, assembled a team in NXT over the past few years. This team operated independently of Kevin Dunn’s oversight, and the freedom allowed for a fresh and innovative approach to production. The departure of Dunn provided an opportunity for this style of storytelling to extend across all WWE programming.

Sources involved in crafting these promos spoke highly of the new process, emphasizing the creative freedom afforded to them.

Under the previous regime, segments may have been cut away to various elements, but the new method prioritizes letting characters breathe and allowing segments to play out organically.
