Bryan Gewirtz will stay on as a consultant for WWE, providing feedback on the shows. It is believed that WWE cannot release him without paying a penalty, which is why he is remaining on the payroll.

Eric Pankowski, who was hired in February as the Senior Vice President for Creative and Development, has been put in Gewirtz's position. Pankowski was previously a senior executive at Reveille and Warner Bros. and has been working with Stephanie McMahon since being brought on.

In addition, Ed Koskey will not be on the road anymore and instead will be working out of WWE HQ in Stamford, Connecticut. Talent is not happy about this as Koskey is well-liked and considered to be someone they could relate to while pushing their own ideas.

This is from our earlier report:

As noted earlier here on the website, there was a major shakeup at RAW on Monday afternoon. In what was described by one source as a "scary scene", Vince McMahon told the entire creative team that he wanted to see changes and that nobody's job is safe if he didn't see some.

Bryan Gewirtz, who has been the head RAW writer for over a decade now, was dropped from the creative team and immediately sent home from RAW. It is believed that WWE cannot release him without paying a penalty, which is why he is remaining on the payroll. For those unaware, Dave Kapoor would write the show alongside other creative team members and then everything went through Gewirtz, followed by Stephanie and Vince McMahon,

Gewirtz' official position was Senior Vice President of Creative Writing. According to sources,. Gewirtz is still with the company as a "consultant". Gewirtz being sent home was described as shocking and something that no one saw coming. Several people feel he "fell on the sword" to show everyone else they can be replaced.

The backstage meeting at RAW comes one week after a fifteen year low RAW rating came in. Since expanding to three hours, the RAW ratings have slipped considerably, especially in the third and most important hour.

We noted last week that Vince was visibly "pissed off" prior to RAW going on the air last week. According to source, his mood "lightened" as the evening went on. The backstage word is that NBC has been putting pressure on WWE and Vince McMahon to get the ratings back up to where they used to be.
