    The corporate section of their website also says you need legitimate experience for writing in the Hollywood/Television industry already before they will consider hiring you.

    Yeah I assumed as much when I read the OP. I doubted WWE would higher someone unknown with no credentials

    Besides the experience issue, I would do it if I had the money for the interview opportunity and to head out for it. That is one of the parts of the enitre process that people do not think of.

    Hypothetically, if the experience thing was not an issue (and neither was the money/travel factor) I still wouldn't do it. I know I'd be no good at it.

    Yet they'll hire someone with no wrestling credentials...because WWE is entertainment and all.

    Minimum of 10 years writing and production experience in television.
    Other than that little detail, I'd be in.

    I get paid more money than I'm making now, meet wrestlers and spend all day in a room with Stephanies boobs.

    Yeah, sounds like a real nightmare.

    Well.....UPDATE....
    After six hours of doing a kick ass resume and a whole year of great storylines and a two hour video saying why I am the "chosen" one for the WWE,I had just sent the bad boy over.
    Now the waiting game begins...........

    "So we were thinking Jack Swagger----"

    "NOOOOOOOOOOO"

    "So we start the show with Sheamus telling us a stor------"

    "NOOOOOOOOOOO"

    "All our champions lose non title matches"

    "NOOOOOOOOOOO"

    "WWE champion never closes out a PPV....unless its Cena"

    "NOOOOOOOOO"

    Easiest job in the world.

    Actually, you'd have to change all those no's to yes's.

    Because if you disagree with Vince that often, you'll be hearing those famous two words.

    Vince isnt the one pitching the ideas. Overseeing creative makes it so these shit ideas never cross his desk

    WWE sent out the business strategy at the same time they released their year-end financials. They basically said they were looking at maximising content and creative in order to pry more eyes over to the proposed WWE network. They were specific that they were looking to improve their content and creative direction. A shake-up doesn't surprise me.

    I'm work in the creative department of an ad agency. It's not as glamourous as it sounds, lol.

    I would imagine being a creative writer when Triple H takes over will be a lot better than being a writer under Vince. I don't think I could handle the constant mood swings of Vince in regards to storyline ideas.

    I love how everyone points out how much of a pain in the ass it is to work with a bipolar Vince Mcmahon.

    I don't think RT's new employers would be too pleased on him quitting his job already. Give it to KJ instead.
