What's the story?

As you are aware, the main thing that differentiates WWE from other sporting events are the writers.

Whether you love them or not, WWE's writers have scripted all of your favourite memories and moments from the world of sports entertainment, that you cherish to this day.

There is a vacancy for the spot of a writer in the company, at this moment.

We wonder if the newer lot of writers can cook up some fresh stories and feuds for us to sink our teeth into, in the coming months.

In case you didn't know...

Certain WWE writers are just as famous (or infamous) as the stars of the company.

Whether it's Brian Gewirtz, or Vince Russo or indeed, even Freddie Pinze Jr., all of these men have been an integral part of creating sports entertainment television for your TV set.

WWE is looking for its next big mastermind to script stories and plots, going forward.

The heart of the matter

Here is a glimpse of the responsibilities required, from the said writer:

  • Develop and implement creative storylines for broadcast and the WWE Network
  • Collaborate with a team of Road-based and Home-based Writers to build compelling RAW/ Smackdown stories that capture the audience and generate buzz
  • Consistently improve and refine storylines
  • Use consumer insights and social media to deliver impactful storylines that are consistent with the WWE brand and each talent’s skills and history

The job description goes on to mention that 5 years of expertise in television are required to qualify, along with extensive product knowledge. The writers must hail from New York/Stamford, CT or be willing to move there.

What's next?

A new bunch of writers will come on board. Will they be able to make the product any more exciting, than it is right now? We'll just have to wait and watch.

Author's take

I wish all the applicants all the best. May one of them change the industry forever. Maybe the guy who bags this gig is reading this very article, as I type this.
