It was originally reported that Chris DeJoseph was fired from his position as the lead writer of Smackdown allegedly because of his behavior at company meetings.
At the time, it was believed that it was due to “inappropriate conduct and remarks.”
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that the most consistent story about what happened is that DeJoseph was on a Zoom conference call with Stan Stansky, Senior Vice President of Creative Services, and Kevin Moore, Senior Vice President of E-Commerce and Venue Merchandise.
Per the report, DeJoseph said things he shouldn’t have and came off to Moore and Stansky ‘in a bad way’. Once Vince McMahon found out, he was let go.
