• New RAW Writer Has No Knowledge Of Wrestling, Doesn’t Know The Name Of The WWE Champion
During an interview on the ‘Asian Not Asian’ podcast, new RAW writer Kenice Mobley revealed that WWE hired her despite having no knowledge about the wrestling business.
Here’s what she said:
“Yes, I have just been hired by WWE. Given the things that you know about me and my entire life and what I’m into, yes [that’s surprising]. Yes, also a surprise for me.
They did not require me to know anything about wrestling but I do have a background in film production and comedy writing and they’re like, ‘Perfect. Come on in.’
So I am on the Monday Night RAW team. So there’s Monday Night RAW and Friday Night SmackDown and the people I know that are on it are Bobby — his name is either Bobby Ashley or Bobby Lashley and I really should know that.
He’s like this giant Black guy and he and the people who are part of his crew, I know that they call — or at least as of last year, they called themselves The Hurt Business. The Hurt Business. They wear suits and they’re like, ‘We’re cool.’”
