On Friday, Brian Gewirtz and CM Punk responded to a story about it. They cracked some jokes at the company’s expense.
Gewirtz worked for WWE from 1999-2015. He has since moved on to The Rock’s Seven Bucks Productions where he is currently working on NBC’s “Young Rock” series.
Gewirtz first wrote, “Happy to get started! I assume we all realize the folly of fighting for brand supremacy one month after a draft when brand loyalty/identity cannot be properly established and with no meaningful stakes, the matches can feel forced and meaningless… I’m fired aren’t I?”
CM Punk then responded to Gewirtz by noting that they can help WWE director Kevin Dunn win an Emmy.
“I’ll do it with you. We’ll get KD that Emmy!”
I’ll do it with you. We’ll get KD that Emmy!
