• Vince McMahon Accidentally Buried RAW’s Leader Writers In Front Of WWE’s Entire TV Team
According to RSN, RAW’s Lead Writers Jon Baeckstrom and Ryan Ward sent out the script of the July 11th episode of RAW on July 10th and Vince McMahon wasn’t happy with the creative.
McMahon gave them a piece of his mind in an email reply, but he chose the “reply all” option, which means Vince’s email response went to WWE’s entire TV team, this burying the lead writers in front of the whole team.
It is also being reported that Bruce Prichard did nothing to defend them and Ed Koskey was not around to fix this, which he usually does.
This email went to even those people in the company that don’t have anything to do with the creative side, and Baeckstrom & Ward became a laughing stock in the company due to this.
