From WO website:
There has been a shake-up in the writing teams of WWE television today, which has been brewing for some time.
Ed Koskey, who had been the head writer of Raw, is being moved to SmackDown, and will be working with Eric Bischoff. Koskey has been with the company for more than 18 years and has been a key writer for more than a decade and is currently Vice President of Creative Writing.
Jonathan Baeckstrom has taken over as the lead writer for Raw. He will work under Paul Heyman. Baeckstrom had been the lead writer for 205 Live since November 2016, although he had been moved from the show when Heyman brought him in when he started being in charge of Raw.
Soo, that story a couple of months back about how Heyman and Bischoff were largely in control of creative is a bit murky now? Vince with his hands all over SD with the jump to Fox coming up was to be expected I guess.
So basically, Baeckstrom has to come up with creative and has to have it greenlighted by Heyman, who then has to have it greenlighted by Vince? Sounds like fun lol
