WWE Raw "Lead Writer" Reportedly Fired - Reason Revealed

Roman Reigns returns to the red brand on tonight's show...

A report from Fightful claims lead Raw writer Ryan Callahan has been fired by WWE after working for them for several years.

Here's what Fightful are reporting as it pertains to the reasoning for Callahan's firing: "We're told that Callahan had an issue with Dave Kapoor, who portrayed Ranjin Singh on TV for years. Kapoor felt that Callahan took creative changes a little too personally, and was difficult to work with, not setting a good example for the rest of the writing team. Callahan was subsequently fired the evening of Thursday, May 2."

WWE's writing staff is made up of home and road writers, with the home writers working from WWE HQ in Stamford, Connecticut, and the road team travelling to TVs each week. Callahan was a home writer during his time with the company.

The writing teams in WWE have gone under some serious realignment in recent times, with the likes of Bruce Prichard and Dana Warrior joining, and Road Dogg stepping back from his role on the SmackDown Live side of things.
