• Details On The Problem Vince McMahon Faces While Booking Storylines
As we noted before, Triple H is frustrated with how Vince McMahon is booking things on the WWE main roster.
However, the problem isn’t that Vince McMahon isn’t open to suggestions from anyone, the problem is that he’s open to suggestions from a lot of people.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Vince McMahon gets suggestions from so many people that the storyline ends up getting watered down when it’s finalized:
“We’re told that there has been too much input from too many people on the team who haven’t figured out that when you change something in a story, it has a ripple effect on every aspect of the story. He solicits input on so much from so many people that it leads to things being watered down.”
WWE reportedly has almost 40 writers for the main roster.
