WWE head writer Jay Gibson has been released from the company, PWTorch reports. His release was made by Vince McMahon on Friday, just one day after WWE released 11 talents. It was previously reported by PWInsider that there were no office cuts last week and this is the first creative release that we’ve heard of.
Last night’s RAW episode was the first WWE TV show without Gibson. This led to a show that had familiar segments that are a favorite of Vince McMahon’s, including the segment with Stephanie McMahon throwing up on Vickie Guerrero.
Vince is reportedly looking at reducing payroll and is spearheading changes that go back to the budget cuts that we’ve been reported on.
