Men have always occupied the majority of the space in the WWE writer's room, but Stephanie McMahon is out to change that.
Christine Lubrano was recently named the Senior Vice President of Creative Writing and more female writers have reportedly been hired over the past years.
Speaking to Stephanie Chase of Digital Spy, Stephanie McMahon discussed her goal to add more female voices behind the scenes in WWE.
"Hiring in the writing room is really important because it has previously been a fairly male-dominated writing room and there are big efforts right now to change that. I don't have the stats off the top of my head. So I'm not sure how many women we've hired since we started but I know it's several, including a senior ranking VP (Christine Lubrano) who's in charge of many different aspects of making sure that the creative and partnerships and all lines of business are all working together. So there's a been a huge movement. And for both men and women we are always looking to improve our storylines no matter what and improve our character development," she said.
Lubrano recently used her influence to secure an appearance by actor David Krumholtz on WWE Raw. He played "Drew McIntyre" in a segment with The Miz and John Morrison.
