WWE Didn't Fire Head Writer Over Budget Reasons

He didn't know much about the product...
WWE's decision to fire RAW head writer Jay Gibson was not for budget concerns like the other releases. Gibson only worked with WWE for five months and didn't actually write himself. Instead, he got a team of writers together to work on specific storylines or work with different wrestlers. Gibson himself didn't have much knowledge about the WWE product.
Since Gibson doesn't actually write for RAW, his release isn't as important as it appears. There will likely not be any real changes to TV or storyline direction.
