Brian Gewirtz Removed From Executive Role; Full Details On Who Writes & Approves What You See On TV

In the latest update regarding WWE Creative, Brian Gewirtz was removed from his position as the Senior Vice President of Creative Writing but remains employed. He will be replaced by Eric Pankowski, who was hired in February, and previously worked as a senior executive at Reveille and Warner Bros.

To make sure you are in the know, the head writer for Raw is David Kapoor (a/k/a Ranjin Singh). The head writer for Smackdown is Ed Koskey but something is reportedly going down with him, however, we are working to confirm. Gewirtz was working above both and anything they wrote had to be approved by him before going to Stephanie McMahon. Vince McMahon of course approves everything as he has the final say.

Other members of the WWE creative team include Kevin Eck (formerly of The Baltimore Sun), Pat Patterson and Tom Cassielo.

We should have much more following this week’s WWE Raw.
