Below are a couple of top WWE news stories of the day, involving SmackDown and Liv Morgan.

• WWE is known for its dynamic environment, constantly evolving with new promotions and shifts within its ranks. Recently, Friday Night SmackDown welcomed a new head writer, marking a significant change in its creative team.

According to a report by Fightful Select, John Swikata, a veteran WWE creative writer, has been promoted to lead writer for SmackDown. This change was confirmed by multiple sources within the company, indicating a new era for the blue brand. Swikata takes over from Ryan Callahan, who has parted ways with WWE.

Though not widely known in the public sphere, Swikata has been a senior writer with WWE for several years. His low profile is highlighted by the scarce mentions in media, with one notable reference being a 2014 tweet from Road Dogg. Despite the lack of public information, Swikata’s impact on the creative direction of SmackDown is already being felt.

A source within WWE highlighted Swikata’s influence, pointing to the creative direction of the most recent Friday night show. The June 21st edition of SmackDown stood out as a particularly memorable episode, with many backstage considering it one of the most significant since WrestleMania 40.

• ‘Hawk Tuah’ has become an internet sensation, thanks to a woman who is now the face of these viral memes. Social media users are both puzzled and amused by the ‘Hawk Tuah’ girl, whose comedic spitting act has taken the internet by storm.

The phrase ‘Hawk Tuah’ mimics the sound of the spitting act. This viral moment originated from a video by Tim and Dee TV, where the girl was asked a provocative question: “What’s one move in bed that makes a man go crazy every time?”

Without hesitation, she responded, “Oh, you have got to give it that ‘hawk tuah’ and spit on that thang, you get me?”
