More WWE Creative Changes Revealed – The ‘Home’ and ‘Traveling’ Teams

– The WWE creative team reportedly now consists of two groups – the “home team” and the “traveling team.” The home team, mainly Stephanie McMahon and Brian Gewirtz, will be going to TV tapings less often with the idea that as soon as RAW is over, they and the other writers who don’t travel begin working on long-term programs and the following week’s shows. Former Baltimore Sun writer Kevin Eck has been mentioned as a possible member of the “home team.”

The “traveling team” will be led by head SmackDown writer Ed Koskey, head RAW writer Dave Kapoor (Ranjin Singh) and a lot of the newly hired soap opera writers. The writers are no longer traveling on WWE’s corporate jet and are flying commercial, having to drive from RAW to SmackDown instead of flying on the WWE jet.

“Air McMahon” is now being used for Vince McMahon, Triple H, John Laurinaitis and a few others. One person close to the situation said this is actually preferred over traveling on the jet with the negative being that you don’t get home until Wednesday after the tapings. WWE has chartered buses for their writers and producers in the past, depending on the distance between the cities that host RAW and SmackDown that week.

    @StocktonJoe yes Soap Opera Writers!! and so far its working with the CM Punk Storyline 🙂

  • Dave

    I’m sure the writers are thrilled to fly commercial and not have Team McMahon in their ear constantly.

  • StocktonJoe

    1. SURE it’s preferred. I mean, why would I want to fly coroporate when I can fly commercial on my own dime? I can’t help but wonder if the “corporate golden boys” (both men and women) GET to fly Air McMahon while the hoi polloi get to fly commercial. Could be a big area of contention among the Talent and Staff.

    2. SOAP OPERA WRITERS??? WTF is this, TNA??????

  • Matt

    writers and all wrestlers should be allowed on the jets. There should be three jets, one for smackdown, one for raw, and another for the mcmahons, high ranking officials, writers, and for wrestlers who are doing both shows.

    Wow, taking a jet to work must be nice.
