Backstage News On Curtis Axel & Ariya Daivari Working As WWE Producers


We reported several weeks ago here on eWn that former WWE Superstars Joe Hennig (Curtis Axel) and Ariya Daivari have been working as producers in a tryout capacity.

According to a report from Fightful, both Hennig and Daivari continued their tryouts at last week’s WWE RAW and SmackDown TV tapings.


WWE taped two episodes of SmackDown in Albany, New York last Friday. One was the live episode and the other was taped for next week as the company will be overseas in Europe. The TV tapings reportedly had similar teams of workers and producers.

Several of the producers who handled last Friday’s live episode of SmackDown also had to work on the segments involving the same talents for the second show. So they were working extra hard this past Friday in Albany.
