There was major heat backstage at Monday night’s RAW and Brian Gewirtz has been dismissed from his duties writing RAW. Gewirtz will remain with the company as a consultant but there’s talk that these changes may be the beginning of the end for Gewirtz and even SmackDown writer Ed Koskey. WWE keeping him as a consultant may be their way of working out what’s left of his contract.

Gewirtz was actually dismissed on Friday but the word was kept quiet over the weekend. Gewirtz was not the RAW head writer but he had been writing both RAW and SmackDown from WWE headquarters in Stamford with the rest of the non-traveling creative team.

As noted, Eric Pankowski will be replacing Gewirtz. Pankowski has been with the company since February and it’s said that Vince McMahon and Stephanie McMahon are very high on him.

There’s expected to be a lot more changes within WWE soon. Most everyone is nervous and scared for their jobs.

PWMania.com noted last night that Vince held a meeting before RAW and told the writers that he wants results or resignations. Vince added that those changes starts at the top with him. The situation was described as very scary.
