Source: Wrestling Observer Newsletter

There have been some significant changes to the WWE creative team lately as Brian Gewirtz is no longer the RAW head writer and Michael Hayes is no longer the SmackDown head writer as both have been moved a step above the head writer position.

Gewirtz's role now is to give ideas and set up the main direction for both shows, and transmit the ideas Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon have for what they want on the show. Hayes' new role is to be the guy who also gives ideas for both RAW and SmackDown, but he's also the guy who oversees the agents and tells them what key things have to be included in TV matches.

John Cena Response To The Rock's Video

Following The Rock posting a video on Twitter, John Cena tweeted the following:

CeNation. Just saw Dwayne's statement. Via satellite of course. Sad, really. It was like an episode of mad money.I wonder if GLAAD will be offended by Dwayne's comments.

Either way..looks like I have really made him mad. But, certainly not mad enough to show up and do anything. Maybe he can send a stuntman.Dwayne. I am a WWE employee, and a proud one. The difference between us is you left for 'greener pastures'. For me...this is what I love I have never begged for anyones admiration or acceptance, u don't believe me..watch MITB. Its not about that. Its about showing up.

Id rather wrestle a thousand 'punks' than one 'rock'. Because I can see his passion. Wish I could see yours...yer just never there. :)

Until april 1st. Keep on bringing it my man. You're doing great. Your friend John Cena
