WWE writer departs from the company.
Kazeem Famuyide announced on social media that he has left WWE. Famuyide was hired by the company in May 2018 and is a former managing editor at Bleacher Report.
"I want to thank the wonderful folks at the WWE for letting a kid get to live his dream for the past year," wrote Kazeem. "Never would have thought I would've got to write and create for something I grew up watching, and moreso, making some lifelong friends along the way. The journey was incredible, the experience was immeasurable, and the respect that I'll have for every single man and woman that helps put this show together every week will never ever dissipate. Thank you to the incredible creative writing team for making me feel welcomed and everyone else at WWE for the hell of a ride. It's on to the next one."
Kazeem went on to share his "greatest hits" which included King Booker's return, the Seattle crowd booing Kevin Owens and Elias over comments about the Supersonics, The Usos vs. Bar rap battle and more. You can see the whole thread here.
There’s tons more, and a lot of these aren’t possible without the help of great lead writers like Ryan Callahan, Ed Koskey, Steve G and the Road Dogg. I’m endlessly grateful for this experience and learning so much. And now i can say this without consequence...— Kazeem Famuyide (@RealLifeKaz) February 5, 2019
The WWE creative team are some of the most incredibly hard working, talented, funny, smart and passionate people I’ve ever worked with. They get a shit ton of unnecessary online hate and 98% of you who criticize them wouldn’t last a week. They are brilliant.— Kazeem Famuyide (@RealLifeKaz) February 5, 2019
Also, a big thank you to the extremely kind and thoughtful @HeymanHustle, a guy who always sought me out to make sure i was good, give advice, help me with my writing and how to maneuver in the machine. Thank you so much.— Kazeem Famuyide (@RealLifeKaz) February 5, 2019
