• Vince McMahon Kept On Changing WWE’s Policy Regarding Chris Benoit
During a recent appearance on Perched On The Top Rope podcast, former WWE Network employee Marie Shadows talked about how Vince McMahon kept on changing WWE’s policy regarding Chris Benoit.
While Benoit is banned from being mentioned on WWE’s current TV shows & PPVs, he can still be found on the old shows that are available on the WWE Network.
Here’s what Marie had to say about this situation:
“I understood where they were coming from. I was even frustrated with some of the rules they put in place. The first week I was there, you know how Chris Benoit is a very touchy subject. We have to go through lots and lots of footage. Depending on what they assign you, you have to be careful about what you put for the SEO.
One week, ‘Chris Benoit’ is okay so make sure to tag it. Week two, the bosses come in and are like, ‘oh no, Vince doesn’t want that. Vince wants you to change it up.’
The workers didn’t have to do it, the supervisors had to do it, but we as the workers had to know that we couldn’t do it in the second week. The third week came and they were like, ‘Eh, it’s okay now.’ The fourth week they were like, ‘never mind, don’t worry about it, we’ll take care of everything.’
I understood fans when they were complaining about the WWE Network and ‘this didn’t work’ and ‘that didn’t work.’
I had those frustrations over there working with them.”
