Staff Shake Up Imminent!!!
Shocking news coming out of the WWE this evening which leaves the future of many storylines and the company's main direction up in arms, for the time being at least. Vince McMahon has said to have wanted to shake up the creative team which leaves Smackdown Head Writer Bradley going to RAW and RAW Head Writer ~LetItRock leaves the flagship show to head to the potential-laden Friday Night Smackdown. The future of ECW remains in doubt with Vince McMahon in two minds about it, if ECW were to disband the majority of the roster would be released or sent down to FCW but the higher profile names (like Christian, William Regal and Finlay) would be split between RAW and Smackdown respectively. Bradley has welcomed the move as a fresh challenge and the chance to work with such big names as Randy Orton, Triple H and The Undertaker as 'too good to turn down' whereas ~LetItRock has welcomed the opportunity to work with up and coming stars mixed in with such relative veterans like Jeff Hardy and Edge. Summerslam has been built up on radio stations across the country despite being months away and an insider from the WWE has stated that 'This is second to only 'Mania so expect quality matches and angles heading in to that event.' Shawn Michaels, meanwhile, has been rumoured to return full-time sometime in Fall. In other news Hawkins has been removed from the Smackdown roster page on wwe.com but he has not yet been released.
Basically Rock and I are trading places and I feel it is beneficial to us both as I suit more of the RAW style of writing and Rock will no doubt work wonders with the talent over on Smackdown. Keep an eye on Summerslam as that event will be BIG, ECW will be up when Rock comes back from holiday and Smackdown will follow shortly after and Extreme Rules will come after that. After Extreme Rules most characters and storylines will be 'blank slates'. Rivalries may continue but that remains to be seen so keep that in mind and keep enjoying the thread!
