Recently Released WWE Head Writer Speaks Out on Leaving WWE, Working for the McMahons, the Womens Division and More

Tom Casiello, formerly WWE’s head writer who was released last week, posted the following comments on Twitter:

Working with the McMahons:

I’m sure there will now be lots of stupidity floating around. So here’s my only statement on this, and you can print it, and then I’m…

…not entertaining this anymore. I think the McMahons, despite all their eccentricities and quirks, are AWESOME. I loved working with them.

You won’t find one bad story about me in six years. Well, I did fall asleep in a production meeting once. But whatever. We all got along.<br />— Tom Casiello (@tommiecas) December 10, 2016

The lack of drama in his release:

I got along great with talent. The writers are like BROTHERS to me. It was sad, but I walked out with my head held high, and I’m seeing…

…them for dinner next week. There’s no scandal or drama. I worked with amazing people who produce almost 600 hours of original television

See, here’s the thing you might not know about writers. We are nomadic. We lose our jobs all the times. I’ve lost 12 jobs in 20 years.

So believe me when I say there is ZERO bitterness, Ergo, no need to spend the next years of my life on podcasts b—hing re: a job I loved.

This is how this industry works, folks. It’s just business. I totally get it. They totally get it. We’re all on the same page.

Setting the record straight on potential reasons he was released:

The elimination of my position had NOTHING to do with my stand on the election, my sexual orientation, or anything else invented by websites

I have been open and honest from day one about who I am and what I believe in. And Vince was respectful of that.

The state of the women’s division:

HAH! There is something else I want to say. (See? Y’all got me cutting promos now!) But to say that I, and I alone, am single-handedly..

…responsible for the Women’s Revolution is preposterous & an insult to the dedication and hard work those amazing women have accomplished.

Newsflash: if Vince doesn’t want to do something, he doesn’t do it. If he wants to,he does it. Did I work closely with the Women’s Division?

Yes. I did. From Day one. And I always fought to get them more time and better stories, etc. But believe me when I say it takes an ARMY of

people to make Raw and SDL happen. And EVERYONE is behind what’s been happening with the Division. And EVERYONE works together to

see it through. So for everyone posting and speculating and wondering if this means the Women’s Division is suddenly going to go back to

bra and panties matches that are 3 minutes long… stop. These women are unstoppable. They’re here to stay, no matter who’s writing the show
