According to reports from Pro Wrestling Sheet & Fightful, Monday Night RAW Head Writer Ryan Callahan was let go by the company this past week. Callahan started working for WWE in 2016 and he has previously worked on shows such as The Bachelor & Monster Laws.
Callahan was reportedly let go on Thursday evening, May 2nd, after having some sort of conflict with WWE’s Senior VP Of Creative David Kapoor (Ranjin Singh). The release was not due to the recent drop in WWE TV ratings. Callahan was a member of the “home writing team” that does not travel to WWE Live Events.
Kapoor reportedly felt like Callahan took some of The WWE creative changes too personally and was difficult work with. His feeling was that this did not set a good example for the rest of The WWE writing team. It was also noted that Callahan & Kapoor were butting heads often.
There has been somewhat of a shake-up on The WWE creative team as of late as RD Evans, Dave Schilling, Kazeem Famuyide & WWE Hall Of Famer “Road Dogg” Brian James also left or were released. Dana Warrior & WWE Hall Of Famer Jeff Jarrett have joined the team in recent months.
