• WWE Writer Gets Heat Backstage Following Emmy Win
WWE writer Jen Pepperman won a Daytime Emmy award for Outstanding Directing in a Digital Drama Series for “After Forever”.
According to Fightful, Jen brought her Emmy backstage at RAW during a meeting and got heat for it as WWE is desperate to win an Emmy award, but couldn’t do it.
Many people in WWE believe that Jen bringing her award backstage could cause friction and jealousy backstage due to the above stated fact of WWE never winning an Emmy and it could affect her standing in the company.
