WWE has many problems in the creative department, but one former writer might have some ideas on how WWE can improve its product.
Former WWE writer Brian Maxwell Mann commented on a tweet by Matt Riddle where he was doing nothing on the day of WWE TLC.
Mann then gave a six-point example on how RAW can be made better. He referenced Riddle, saying: “next time people give you an excuse for raw’s ratings, remember there’s nothing stopping WWE from putting this man on tv.”
He then provided some good ideas which he had picked up during his time in the entertainment industry.
“btw, there’s A LOT of ways WWE could change the way they produce programming to make a three hour show work. here’s a few.”
“1) treat Raw as three one hour shows, rather than one three hour program. figure out ways to make each unique so show doesn’t get stale.”
“2) assign specific writers to specific characters/programs. the most experienced ones are given the main event, next tier is IC, and so forth.”
“3) have a showrunner who provides finishing touches/keeps a bird’s eye view but DOES NOT write. like Lorne does on SNL.”
“4) rotate characters in and out, keeping the programming fresh/building anticipation. ex – Monday Night Football doesn’t have the same two teams every week.”
“5) announce big segments/matches WEEKS out. SNL reveals guest hosts way in advance.”
“6) finally, and most importantly, TRUST the writers. to a person, everyone who I’ve ever met who worked on creative LOVED wrestling. you have to do that job.”
“however, the main problem is exactly what I was told when I started there – “at the end of the day, this show has one writer.”
The ideas seem good in theory. However, WWE actually using the ideas not is another story. In the end, it is Vince McMahon’s show and what he says goes. So he has the last word on anything that goes on in WWE.
