Triple H: WWE COO reportedly the most frustrated person in WWE. Stunning revelations on how toxic the work environment is in the company.
With so many wrestlers wanting out on their contracts, it is no secret that how many people are unhappy working for Vince McMahon. However according to the recent Wade Keller’s Pro Wrestling Post-Show, it’s not just the wrestlers but also the writers who are fed up of Vince.
A close friend of 3 WWE writers called in and made many revelations about what it’s like working in WWE.
Here are some of the things he said on the show
On the WWE’s Creative team
WWE’s problems are not the fault of the writers. “No one should rip on WWE creative. They have some of the most brilliant, unbelievable cool ideas that I’ve ever heard…”
He said that he was told, “We’re writing for an audience of one and never forget that [and if not] you’re out of here.”
” Vince wants suggestions from everyone but it never gets on TV. 99 out of 100 times you can come up with an idea for Vince and it won’t be used”.
On Triple H being frustrated with Vince
“The most frustrated person in the back every single night is Triple H. He’ll always take, especially the NXT guys, under his wing. It looks like he’s consoling them. It looks so much like he was the most frustrated person in the building every single night.”
On the Working environment in WWE
“One writer is very close to quitting because he is so ‘unbelievably unhappy’ and many of the writers are paranoid and think they are close to being fired. It’s such a toxic atmosphere and it’s all because of one person.”
On Vince not listening to anyone
The writers say Bruce Prichard is a pleasure to work with. “He’s a funny guy and a pleasure to work with but he’s not getting through to Vince either.”
“Shane McMahon, Triple H and Stephanie McMahon have tried to talk to Vince but it hasn’t worked”
On Andrade and Sami Zayn
“Andrade went into Vince’s office and asked for a legit push. Vince looked at him and said, “learn some English and get back to me.” Andrade spoke some English last week and he’s been taking English lessons.
“That’s not Sami Zayn’s promos. That’s Vince McMahon talking through Sami Zayn.”
