One day you're in. And the next, you're out.
On Feb. 24, Schilling took to social media to announce he would be joining WWE creative. Schilling formerly wrote for Bleacher Report, The Guardian, Grantland and VICE.
SOME PERSONAL NEWS: I can finally reveal that I’m joining the creative team at WWE next month. I could not be more thrilled to have this opportunity in an industry I love.— Dave Schilling (@dave_schilling) February 24, 2019
Schilling confirmed his departure on social media with a series of tweets, including jokes about not knowing what "wrestling," a banned term in WWE, is.
Honestly, this is the first I’ve heard of this “wrestling” but it seems interesting.— Dave Schilling (@dave_schilling) April 25, 2019
I’m starting a podcast where my co-host explains the last two months of professional wrestling that I missed because I was *completely blacked out* the whole time.— Dave Schilling (@dave_schilling) April 24, 2019
I blacked out for two months and just woke up in a ditch on the outskirts of Merced, California. I check Wrestling Twitter and THIS is what I find out? Who writes this stuff?!?!?!— Dave Schilling (@dave_schilling) April 24, 2019
Reminder that I am available to freelance on a variety of topics, including politics, sports, film, TV, and something called “professional wrestling.”— Dave Schilling (@dave_schilling) April 23, 2019
Schilling's departure is another in a long line of backstage moves in recent months. Yesterday it was reported that Dean Malenko quit the company after an eight-year run as a backstage producer.
