Report: Unhappiness on the WWE Creative Team Right Now

Per a recent report, the WWE creative team is definitely feeling the pressure.

As Bryan Alvarez notes in this week's (subscribers only) F4W Newsletter, “There is a lot of panic within WWE right now.”

This stems from the constantly changing storyline plans and general confusion over direction. Alvarez gives some insight into the mindset on the writing crew at present, mentioning that one person backstage had discussed how unhappy they were:

"The creative team is burnt out and scared," said one WWE source. "Scared of who might not be there too much longer. Not the type the stress anyone wants during the holiday season."

It's easy to see why they would be upset. Things are a mess right now.

Big Show, where is WWE going with him?

Case in point: WWE television has been strongly building towards a Triple H/Big Show match for months now.

However, this angle has now seemingly been forgotten about with both stars moving onto different things.

(Hey, wait, doesn't Triple H still technically own Big Show's house? Oh, never mind.)

Likewise, the John Cena/Randy Orton unification match—which under most circumstances would be a very big deal—also seems to have come out of nowhere.

Alvarez even noted that the reason for The Miz's strange booking in recent times—he turned heel two weeks ago then quickly turned back babyface—was because the creative crew had actually forgotten the wrestler had a movie coming out this week (ABC Family's Christmas Bounty) and needed to be a good guy to properly promote it.

And let's not get started on the perplexing deal with Daniel Bryan, who may or may not still be kidnapped. Everyone is saying different things.

Vince McMahon needs to sort out his creative product.

To be frank, this is all something you would expect out of WCW circa 2000, when incompetence and stupidity were running amok. Not the biggest, most profitable wrestling company in the world.

As much as many fans might like to lay the blame on the writers right now, that's really not fair.

By the sound of things, these guys and girls are overworked. WWE churns out an almost alarming amount of fresh television a week—including a three-hour Raw, a reality show Total Divas and SmackDown. No wonder they're feeling the pressure.

But, truly, the buck stops with WWE owner Vince McMahon who, for whatever reason, can't seem to make up his mind about just what direction he wants his product to go in.
