The WWE is giving fans a chance to join its writing team just days after the company enraged fans by seemingly putting The Rock in the main event of WrestleMania.

Have you ever wanted to write for the WWE and see your storylines produced on Raw, Smackdown, NXT or even pay-per-view events? Well, now’s your opportunity.

Amid recent company backlash, WWE has listed a new position for a writer/producer on its company website and it sounds like a potential dream job for anyone who loves the industry.

WWE hiring writers amid WrestleMania 40 backlash

The WWE’s corporate website describes the job and the responsibilities, some of which are more geared towards social media trends.

The job consists of “collaborating with a team of writers to build compelling stories that capture a global audience fitting multiple demographics,” “providing punch-up for specific scripted segments,” and “incorporating consumer insights and social media to deliver impactful storylines that are consistent with the WWE brand.”

However, WWE also requires five years of experience in writing for TV, film or social media, along with experience working with on-screen talent.

Interestingly, it also states that “understanding of WWE’s audience” isn’t a requirement, but rather a “plus.”

This job opening was, amusingly, posted the day of a controversial Smackdown segment where it appeared that The Rock would be facing Roman Reigns instead of Cody Rhodes at WrestleMania.

WrestleMania 40 was, according to insiders, supposed to be Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes all along, with The American Nightmare “finishing the story” that began last year.

For over two years, the WWE built towards a WrestleMania rematch between Cody and Roman, but plans reportedly changed following the Vince McMahon scandal that connected back to Brock Lesnar.

With CM Punk’s injury further impacting plans, the WWE pivoted to seemingly having The Rock, one of the biggest names in the company, take over, which set the fandom into a furious frenzy.

Nothing is set in stone, though, so we’ll have to see how WWE moves forward. Maybe even you could have a part to play if you become a writer.
