Shane had a simple proposal: that he take over all of creative, including the writer’s room, with Frey and his team at Full Fathom Five as consultants.”The article also examines long-tenured employees of WWE that were suddenly let go by the company in recent years including Sally Presutto, the former senior director of live events. Presutto noted she never spoke with any of the McMahon family.“I was very hurt. After 23 years, with no explanation—that’s the end of that. People that have proven to be loyal and dedicated seem to be let go. That’s how they do things around there sometimes.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipIs WWE Losing Its Audience?Video Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:29/Current Time 0:04Loaded: 100.00%0:04Remaining Time -0:25 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Facebook WhatsApp Adam Martin RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Roman Reigns is in Remission Where did you get that info Mike – The Boogeyman first appeared with OVW which was simply a partner with WWE and managed by Danny – I highly doubt Shane had any idea who he was before he was even signed by WWE or got that involved with a non-signed wrestler and created the character? You can confirm the OVW part on wiki and older video. So I don’t think Shane gets to take the blame even if The Boogeyman character still exists today, is signed to a legends contract, is in recent WWE video games and appearances and therefore could be argued as a success overall! TheCyberZon Indeed. I wonder what his terms and conditions were and why it fell through? CenaLife Very fascinating article except Ali did not “fight” at the first wrestlemania!
