  1. Honestly this is a good move on WWE’s part. They’re famous for being ‘male soap opera’ for the most part and I think it’s good to hire people familiar with that territory instead of hiring ex Disney and Nickelodeon writers like they have recently.

    Now the only problem to get rid of is Vince changing the writing around mindlessly….

  2. Hmm I heard rock did his own promos..either way soap opera really…doesn’t wrestling have a bad rep for that already.

  3. I wonder if WWE will use soap opera commentary with a organ playing in background – “Will so-and-so realize his tag team partner is plotting against him?” etc…
