* WWE management is said to be very upset at the amount of news that has been leaking online in recent months. Stephanie McMahon was said to be furious when she learned of reports that revealed Chris Jericho was the person behind the “Save Us” promos.
There is a strong belief that WWE has held off Chris Jericho’s return to show the Internet writers that they don’t know everything. Monday night on RAW, Santino Marella made fun of Maria for thinking Stone Cold Steve Austin was in the building. He told her to stop reading those “Internet chatrooms” and getting bad information online.
Stephanie went as far as to review all company cell phone records of the writing team and did a forensic check of their computers, looking for e-mails leaks. This was not the first time WWE conducted such searches. WWE didn’t find any guilty parties, but did find excessive private calls, and yelled at the writers for it.
Stephanie’s wrath did not stop there. She wants to revise the contracts of WWE’s creative writers to explicitly state that WWE has 100% ownership of any ideas or concepts they come up with while working for WWE. Writers are prohibited from being interviewed or talking to anybody from the media. Even after they leave WWE, they cannot talk about their time working for the company.
* WWE.com posted an article regarding the recent death threats that JBL’s wife has been receiving. They mention that the CEO of Citigroup will be resigning due to the drop in shares in the company. It is interesting that the company put a ‘Saveus’ video link inside the article.
