Big news from the WWE, as it appears Triple H is attempting to make some changes to the creative process.

According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via WrestleZone.com):

Triple H is making another change to how the future will be for WWE.

He is starting to do away with word for word scripts and teach the developmental talents how to work with bullet points. This allows each talent to learn how to speak as their character and rely more on their own creative ability versus just reading what someone else wrote for them.

This is how WWE use to be with the characters, having more range, and Triple H is expected to continue to bring more old school elements back to the company.

To me, this is great news, as it will give the company a real chance to evaluate its stars. Let's face it, many people can study and remember a script. However, only a special few can take bullet points and turn them into something magical.

This move will also allow for more spontaneous promos and give the current and future roster a chance to leave their own mark. Overall, with the exception of John Cena and CM Punk, the company has been producing some lackluster scripts and promos.

Ultimately, since the company began full-on script writing, there have been very few promo moments that have shocked fans. Keep in mind, some of the best mic work that we have seen in recent years has been unscripted.

This includes the infamous CM Punk pipe bomb incident and the Daniel Bryan NXT departure speech.

All in all, script writing isn't all bad, as there are many wrestlers that need it in order to keep up with naturally gifted talkers. That being said, this move should prove to be successful and help out many budding stars that need the extra freedom a scripted conversation can't provide.
