WWE fires head writer Adam Rudman after just six weeks

Vince McMahon is not easy to please. - Michael N. Todaro

WWE Head Writer Adam Rudman can no longer call himself as much, as multiple reports have stated he has been let go by the company after just six weeks.

Well, that didn't take long.

Unhappy with the creative direction of the promotion in the lead up to the historic WrestleMania 29 pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza that took place on April 7, 2013, in East Rutherford, New Jersey, Vince McMahon, who was reportedly creating a toxic working environment at the time, future endeavored then head writer Eric Pankowski.

His replacement, Adam Rudman, only managed to last six weeks.

Indeed, according to a report from SEScoops.com, which has since been confirmed by multiple sources, Rudman was let go by Stephanie McMahon, apparently last Friday. Here's what PWTorch.com had to say about it:

According to sources, when Redman was first hired six weeks ago, once people met him, they did not think he would last in WWE. The consensus was that Redman was a bad fit in WWE because he did not have knowledge about pro wrestling.

The idea that WWE frequently hires writers to work for its company in high ranking positions who have little to no knowledge of professional wrestling is so rich. Rudman, though, is likely little more than a scapegoat as opposed to being the actual problem.

I'll let you Cagesiders decide who the actual problem is here.
