Update on WWE Creative Changes, New WWE Content Online, Kofi, Jericho

– Kofi Kingston will be appearing at the Maverick Store in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 5th from 2pm.

– Chris Jericho and his band Fozzy will be performing at the interPLAY festival on August 6th in Ft. McMurray, Alberta, Canada.

– WWE’s 2011 Capitol Punishment is now available to download on Amazon Instant Video. Matches can be downloaded for $1.99 in SD and $2.99 in HD. WWE’s new Rey Mysterio: Life of a Masked Man release is also available to buy or rent on Amazon Instant Video.

– There’s a mentality in WWE right now that they can hire talented soap opera writers at a lower price than in the past before because of the collapse of the soap opera genre. WWE is hiring new writers, most with a soaps background, because they want WWE programming to feature more personality conflict – as seen with the Vince McMahon and Triple H angle at the end of Monday’s RAW.

    well here is an Idea they have the little jimmys in the bag time to go for Momma Jane now

  • White mark

    Hopefully theres still some good wrestling matches.

  • M.O.P.

    Vince should let Punk invade TNA, IMPACT or whatever they call themselves these days

  • Ronni

    Explains why Cena was having a DNM on raw. There prob gonna start having backstage crying segments with Big Show & Kane to gain viewers

  • d

    my guess is most fans assumed cm punk would show up at the end of raw

  • adam

    It could help it can’t be much worse then how wwe has been before the punk stuff. Also it will make it a little better making the stories seem a little more real instead of the normal story of cena vs the world.

    Just keep HHH/McMahon away from each other… HHH “crying” was horrible.

    Nicely done, got a chuckle.

  • jacob

    yeah this isn’t remotely a dumb idea…

  • Greatness

    I’m all for this, if you saw the rating for that HHH/McMahon segment, it was sky high compared to the rest of the show. If the show reveals a “softer” side to the wrestlers it might actually not be all that bad. Just imagine the possibilities if it goes to TV14, then we can have some really good storylines.

    Raw is going into a good direction. I am sure these writers will help.

  • Itchypanda

    Pop pop…I love you.

  • Steve

    Seriously, Nick? Can’t you imagine Dolph Ziggler crying when he finds out Vicki is pregnant…… with someone else’s baby!?! Who’s the father? What will Dolph do? Will he and Vicki stay together?

    Find out next week on, “As The WWE Universe Turns”!

  • nick

    im gunna feel uncomfortable if we get to see wrestlers cry every week…

  • Bill

    When this story originally came up, I thought soap writers would be stupid, but after reading that WWE wants to do more segments like the McMahon/HHH one from Raw, I’m all in for these writers. Let’s just hope they do give us segments like that.
