#3. Long-time WWE writers released

WWE parted ways with two long-time lead writers this past week. Steve Guerreri and Steve Oppenheim were shown the door after being with the company for a considerable amount of time.

Oppenheim was a home team writer based out of the WWE HQ in Stamford Connecticut who worked for the company since 2011. As per Dave Meltzer, Guerreri - who was with the WWE since 2012 - had an argument with Vince McMahon which led to him being taken off the road. He was moved to SmackDown as the blue brand's head writer after Road Dogg stepped down from the position.

While the departures of Guerreri and Oppenheim weren't suggested by Eric Bischoff and Paul Heyman, the move is part of the major backstage shakeup that had been proposed for a while.

#4. Brandi Rhodes gets death threats


AEW's Chief Brand Officer Brandi Rhodes revealed in a sequence of tweets that she is subjected to death threats and hate messages daily.

Rhodes condemned the current state of social media and stated that people with the blue tick on their handles are prone to unwanted online vitriol.


On a lighter note, AEW announced that they will debut their weekly TV show on Wednesday, October 2nd at 8 p.m. ET. The show will air from the Capital One Arena in Washington, D.C and will be two hours long.
