John Morrison enjoyed multiple stints with WWE, but his friend wasn’t so lucky.
During an appearance on The Undisputed Podcast with Bobby Fish, Morrison recalled his friend getting a job as a writer with WWE. However, the writer only lasted a few weeks after repeatedly pointing out problems with storytelling and how WWE was run.
Morrison said that he warned his friend to stop making the critical comments if he wanted to keep his job.
“There’s a buddy of mine, ended up getting hired as a writer and he kept pointing out to me all the things that were wrong with the storytelling and how WWE was run.
I told him for a couple of months, ‘Everyone is aware. All the other writers know this and Vince and the whole office, they know this. I promise you, if you say all these things, you’re gonna last less than a month.’”
The former Intercontinental Champion added that as expected, his friend was fired after just three weeks.
“Guess how long he lasted? Three weeks. So he moved to Connecticut and he’s a smart guy and a good writer. He wrote movies and TV.
It’s just like what we’re talking about. We see the problems and then you have the choice. You can’t just speak up because that doesn’t solve or fix or change anything. They just fire you.”
WWE And Vince McMahon Facing Legal Action From Former Writer
On April 26th it was revealed that former WWE writer Britney Abrahams is suing the company and individual staff alleging “discriminatory treatment, harassment, hostile work environment, wrongful termination, unlawful retaliation against the Plaintiff due to her race, color, and gender.”
Abrahams claims that she was discriminated against and retaliated against after she objected to what was described as “offensively racist and stereotypical jargon” used in segments for Black performers such as Bianca Belair, Apollo Crews, and others.
