WWE has been releasing a lot of talent and backstage workers recently, purportedly as part of cost-cutting measures due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Now another release has been announced, this time of a writer on SmackDown.

Chris DeJoseph

F4Wonline.com is reporting that Chris DeJoseph, who was one of SmackDown’s lead writers, was released. DeJoseph worked closely with Executive Director Bruce Prichard, but Vince McMahon made the call to fire him because the WWE Chairman was said to be irate over DeJoseph’s “highly unprofessional” behavior.

This is actually the second time that DeJoseph has been released from WWE. He had previously been part of the WWE creative back in 2004 till 2010. He’s considered a veteran pro wrestling writer having also worked on Lucha Underground and MLW.

WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair is no longer objecting to the WWE calling Becky Lynch “The Man.”

Last August, Flair took objection to Lynch and the WWE referring to her as “The Man,” a nickname he uses himself. He filed for a trademark on the phrase on August 22 and August 26 last year.

He also stated during interviews that he felt that WWE should have paid him if they wanted to use the phrase as a nickname for Lynch. According to Flair, he began using “The Man” for commerce way back in 1976.

Now, the United States Patent And Trademark Office has a new filing showing that Flair has assigned the interest and goodwill of the trademark to WWE. The new filing is dated May 19, 2020.
