The behind-the-scenes Shake-Up continued this week because the lead writer for Monday Night Raw has been fired.
According to the report, the issue that led to his firing had nothing to do with the declining viewership. There was an issue with Dave Kapoor, who many of you remember as Ranjin Singh (aka The Great Khali’s manager).
The story noted that Kapoor felt that Callahan took creative changes too personally and became difficult to work with so the decision was made to fire him last Thursday (May 2).
The issues with Callahan sound similar to what has been going on with Road Dogg but in his case, he was allowed to go home to take a break. There is still no word on what Road Dogg’s role will be if/when he returns but he was getting frustrated with the last-minute changes made by Vince McMahon after writers would stay up late into the night writing Raw and SmackDown Live.
There have been several changes made in recent months including RD Evans quitting the company as he realized he was about to be fired when Bret Hart mentioned Vince McMahon during his Hall Of Fame speech. Arn Anderson was fired in February and Dean Malenko recently quit his job as a producer/agent. Dana Warrior is one of the recent additions to the creative team.
