Angle/Taker/Heyman Writing SmackDown!, Major WWE Backstage News

Ryan Clark

– John Laurinaitis is said to be more honest and blunt than other WWE officials backstage. Instead of being soft for politics, he usually just says what is on his mind in a direct fashion. In fact, he recently told one wrestler flat-out that he didn’t believe he was someone who could draw.

– Recently when Vince McMahon was unable to attend RAW and Smackdown!, Stephanie McMahon was given the power to be in charge but many described the situation backstage as “chaotic”. Even though Vince was giving his input on the shows via telephone, it slowed the process down and in fact, the RAW script was not finalized until about two hours before the program was to start. Though that was common for NITRO when WCW was around, it is something unheard of for WWE.

– Kurt Angle has been involved in the Smackdown! writing team as of late along with the Undertaker and the road agents.
