We got an unconfirmed tip that Vince McMahon consulted both Zeb Colter and Paul Heyman backstage at this week’s Monday Night Raw about the writing of the show. The tipster emphasized the lack of consultation from Stephanie McMahon.
Speaking of which, WWE continues to incorporate real-life elements into their programming. Stephanie’s bit where she corrected Kaitlyn in front of the Divas for interrupting her [on Monday Night Raw] was based on a real-life incident.
I will work to confirm this tip but it doesn’t sound far fetched. There are known problems within the writing department (See also - Head WWE Creative Team Writer Leaving After Less Than Three Months) and Heyman has been consulted before. Colter’s stock is very high and he has a writing background as he scripted many segments for TNA earlier in the 2000s.
