• Vince McMahon Affecting Personal Lives Of WWE Creative Team Members
During a recent edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about how Vince McMahon is affecting personal lives of the WWE Creative Team members by delaying meetings and having them stay at the Office till 3 am to discuss plans for FastLane 2019.
Below is what Meltzer said:
“It’s been bad because on the mid-week day when they have the big meeting to do all that stuff it’s just like Vince will put them off and put them off and like they don’t even start the meeting sometimes until 10 at night even if it was supposed to start at 5 or 6.
They just sit there and wait for Vince to finish whatever stuff he’s doing. They start at 10 and it’s been real regular that it ends after 3 and for most people it’s probably a negative doing all of that work because you just wanna get it over with. The other one is you’re so freaking tired that you’re not at your best.
So that’s probably of the reason RAW is bad…this is probably a very small reason, but when you’re adding up the reasons it’s another reason.
It’s a reason why a lot of people have fallen by the wayside on the creative end. Because a normal person…you’re supposed to start at 6 and you have to wait another 4 hours and you’re out there until 3:30 AM or 3:05 AM depending on the week — there have been 3:30 weeks. It’s like it’s a pretty tough job in that sense.
It’s a tough job to have while at the same time leading a normal life.”
