Triple H is reportedly “the most frustrated person” in WWE

Some of the usual stories (and some new ones) were confirmed on Wade Keller’s Pro Wrestling Post-Show when a close friend of three WWE writers called into his show after Monday Night Raw. It’s very clear that the buck stops with Vince McMahon and it doesn’t look like real change is coming anytime soon.

Here are things said on the podcast by the close friend of three current WWE writers:

– WWE’s problems are not the fault of the writers. “No one should rip on WWE creative. They have some of the most brilliant, unbelievable cool ideas that I’ve ever heard…” He was told, “We’re writing for an audience of one and never forget that [and if not] you’re out of here.”

– “The most frustrated person in the back every single night is Triple H. He’ll always take, especially the NXT guys, under his wing. It looks like he’s consoling them. It looks so much like he was the most frustrated person in the building every single night.”

– The Wild Card Rule was not in the script on the morning of the show.

– The Superstar Shake-Up changed week to week and it didn’t pan out how it was originally laid out months prior. Everything changed because Vince just decided to change it.

– He talked about the turnover with so many backstage people quitting or being fired.

– SmackDown and Raw writing teams are the same for both shows. They used to be separate but that changed recently after the Shake-Up.

– The caller emphasized that the problems in WWE are not creative’s fault and Vince McMahon is the one person who deserves the blame.

– Vince wants suggestions from everyone but it never gets on TV. 99 out of 100 times you can come up with an idea for Vince and it won’t be used.

– The entire creative team has pitched to have Raw and SmackDown look completely different with different production, a different way of shooting things, etc. and McMahon shoots it down.

– Vince McMahon doesn’t keep track of what is going on with NXT. He “maybe” watches Takeover shows.

– The writers say he just watches WWE and works out and is not aware of things going on in the real world.

– The writers say there is no chance of Vince stepping down.

– Dana Brooke has been the hardest worker for the last 3 years. She goes to the Performance Center, she shows up early and helps set up the ring and she gets in the ring so she can get better. Creative will pitch something for her and she gets nothing up until recently with MITB.

– The caller offered to tell Wade Keller off the air of some cool storylines that were pitched and never used.

– The writer he talked to said, “we’re all working for Dana Warrior and it’s really awkward.”

– The WWE-Fox contract prohibits Fox from moving the show to FS1 even if the ratings drop.

– One writer is very close to quitting because he is so “unbelievably unhappy” and many of the writers are paranoid and think they are close to being fired.

– “It’s such a toxic atmosphere and it’s all because of one person.”

– When Neville walked out, there was a crazy shouting match and he flipped out on Vince McMahon and that was the last time they saw him. The writers praised Neville for being so easy to work with.

– Ideas never pan out as originally planned because writers will come up with stuff and then Vince loses interest after a week or two. He used Mojo Rawley as an example.

– The money is good and it’s a dream job for many writers but it gets frustrating. The talent is very unhappy and people are trying to get out of their contracts.

– The writers say Bruce Prichard is a pleasure to work with. “He’s a funny guy and a pleasure to work with but he’s not getting through to Vince either.”

– Shane McMahon, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have tried to talk to Vince but it hasn’t worked.

– The people on the writing staff listens to podcasts and they hear fans bashing them. “It breaks their heart,” he said.

– Vince is in the announcer’s ear “to a sentence” and he gets on them for tiny mistakes.

– On Sami Zayn: “That’s not Sami Zayn’s promos. That’s Vince McMahon talking through Sami Zayn.”

– There are 37 total writers and they are now working on both shows.

– NBCUniversal and FOX both want the top stars.

– Andrade went into Vince’s office and asked for a legit push. Vince looked at him and said, “learn some English and get back to me.” Andrade spoke some English last week and he’s been taking English lessons.

– The Firefly Fun House stuff is all Bray Wyatt’s idea. Bray is described is an “absolute genius” and he helps other wrestlers with their promos. “He’s one of the best guys in the locker room.”

– The writers he talked to say they loved when there was a real brand split.

– He mentioned The Revival/Usos storyline being done because Vince just thinks its funny.

– Some of the writers think Road Dogg will eventually end up in AEW. (Note: Road Dogg is currently on hiatus and there’s no word on when he will be back or what he would be doing if he returns).

Re: Triple H is reportedly “the most frustrated person” in WWE
If I was Triple H I would be losing my mind right about now too. He set up the perfect system for Vince to succeed, he creates the stars for Vince and all Vince has to do is book them right and he has no clue what he is doing. It is incredibly depressing to think that there is going to be an entire decade of incredibly talented people that are going to be completely wasted just because an old man doesn't want to step down and let the next generation take over.

Why don't they recreate the limo explosion shit from 2007, but make it real this time?

Re: Triple H is reportedly “the most frustrated person” in WWE
Its funny. Normally I would chalk this up to heresay or the dirtsheets making stuff up to drum up interest.

But, I gotta admit, all of this makes total sense.

I mean look at Lucha Underground. That was an exciting show with a vision and unique presentation, and it was written by ex-WWE writers. Give them that same level of freedom and the WWE brand exposure and production values....yeeeeah, we'd probably be in a better place.

Triple H being frustrated? Yeah, I can see that. I see what NXT does. its paced better and way more satisfying, especially when you get to the TakeOver PPV events. And then I see how Raw and SD are presented and you know that isn't what HHH wants to do.

I'm not definitively saying that all of this is right on the money. But, yeah, it kind of makes sense, doesn't it?

Damn. The old man has truly lost it.

And whether this report is true or not, I STILL FUCKING BELIEVE IT. It sounds like exactly what I would imagine the creative environment being like! All these amazing writers but the show has been consistently shit since CM Punk left? Writer after writer is sacked but the show is still fucking awful? The one thing that has remained in all of this change, the one static piece is VINCE HIMSELF.

Re: Triple H is reportedly “the most frustrated person” in WWE
This sounds pretty sad if it is indeed true. Vince is so out of touch, it isn't even funny anymore. The part with Andrade is pretty sad, I think.

And Sami is basically what Corbin was a few months ago, or what?

Re: Triple H is reportedly “the most frustrated person” in WWE
Does anyone else want to argue with me in saying that the brand split is a joke and should end now since the man himself doesn't know what he wants to do with brand?
