What Led to Vince McMahon Blowing Up, Blame on Stephanie?, More Backstage News

– After Monday’s big creative shake-up at RAW, one source told F4Wonline.com that the stress of RAW being three hours has finally hit Vince McMahon. The entire weekend built up and imploded on the WWE flight to the West Coast for this week’s TV tapings. Vince had been in a bad mood for several weeks and something happened on that flight that pushed him over the edge. We noted before that a major blow-up with a top WWE star backstage was a major factor.

Brian Gewirtz, who has been demoted to a consultant role, was the Senior Vice President of Creative and had been reporting directly to Vince and Stephanie McMahon. He was recently demoted to the “home team” that stays at WWE headquarters and works on scripts. It’s said he had only showed up to the Stamford offices three or four days a week for the past year. This got him major heat with others.

The head writer for RAW is currently Dave Kapoor, the former Ranjin Singh. Ed Koskey is likely still the head SmackDown writer for now while Eric Pankowski is the overall head writer. Many others have creative input including Michael Hayes.

One source put some of the blame on Stephanie McMahon. He told F4Wonline.com: “The reality is Brian isn’t the real issue or even a band-aid. Stephanie has run this dysfunctionally toxic division for the entire duration of its ratings decline. Her horrendous structure from the committee dynamic to who she fast-tracks and how rigidly the shows are structured are why this product isn’t gangbusters. Plus, three hours is a [disaster].”

  • How about giving tag teams and womens divisions matches and things to do during the extra hour to fill in time and improve the divisions?

  • dave

    i agree they need more time and i like hhh and stephanie but when vince does retire i think he should of gave shane mcmahon the job i think it suited him better

  • David

    @dave I’m sure Vince would love to give the company to Shane, but Shane wants to focus on outside ventures. Sucks for us.

  • stone cold

    vince needs dr shelby to help him out

  • Chelsii’s Black Boyfriend

    @stone cold Vince needs Dr. Phil

  • Kerwin White is dr Shelby

    This has been a long time coming. Stephanie has been terrible for a looong time, and it’s always amazed me how she never got the blame. At the same time, Vince always has final say, so it’s both of them, really. They desperately need guys like Heyman and JR to lend their creative talent to the mix before this company implodes. Not saying they’ll change the wrestling world, they’ll just come up with better storylines and shows. And that’s really all we need.

  • stone cold

    or maybe he needs kane and d bryan

    Bring back Cruiserweight division to add more in ring fun action, and don’t make it a 5 minute match and keep Hornswoggle away from the division.
