• Reason Behind WWE Firing SmackDown Lead Writer

WWE SmackDown’s Lead Writer Christopher DeJoseph got released by the company a couple of weeks ago. This was a pretty strange move, as DeJoseph returned to the company just 6 months ago and had also gotten a promotion recently.

The Wrestling Observer previously reported that he got fired because he got into an incident with Vince McMahon backstage.

In an update to the incident, the Observer reports that he was on a Zoom conference call with Stan Stansky, the Senior Vice President of Creative Services, and Kevin Moore, the Senior Vice President of E-Commerce and Venue Merchandise, where he said things which didn’t need to be said.

“Essentially he said things that he shouldn’t have and according to some versions came off to them in a bad way, and Vince McMahon found out and that was it.”
