WWE: Creative writers under more pressure then usual?

Even some WWE creative critics are sympathetic to the creative team due to the fact that they are understaffed and taking on a bigger workload than usual. Raw head writer Brian Gewirtz worked out a deal to help him avoid burnout that allows him to skip most Smackdown tapings events, and Smackdown head writer Michael Hayes took off the week after WrestleMania 24.

However, some of the writers who work under Gewirtz and Hayes have had recent vacation requests denied. Sources feel that the creative team was understaffed when Dave Lagana was fired back in January, and the workload is greater now that Dusty Rhodes has been reassigned to Florida Championship Wrestling.
