WWE Total Divas story producer Michael Wehr recently spoke with John Corrigan of Temple News. Here are some highlights of what he said about:

How He Joined the Show: “I lucked out. In Hollywood, they always say it’s who you know; it’s not a cliché. I was working on a show for TLC called ‘Gypsy Sisters’ and I was going to sign on for season two, but I started interviewing for other shows. One of my ex-coworkers recommended me to a friend of his, and all I heard was that it was a wrestling show about girl wrestlers. So I made the call to the powers that be and within 30 seconds, she told me it was for the WWE and I said I’ll sign on. I had to break some ties, but everybody knows you have to go where the work is, and I don’t think I could live with myself if I passed up on a WWE show.”

His Role On Total Divas: “I watch endless amounts of footage,” he said. “I take different aspects and form a story without manipulating it too much. Going in, the executive producers kind of have an idea of what direction they want to go in, but other times a scene will be shot and the story is not getting across, so we have to figure how to do that as quickly as possible. Two people could be having a heart-to-heart, and then all of a sudden a dog could run in barking with some kids and ruin the scene.”
