Former WWE Referee Weighs In On WWE Booking, Wrestlers In Sports Jerseys, Steve Blackman

- Former WWE referee Wes Adams has published a new column at PWMania.com. Adams talks about about WWE's booking and comparing WWE bookers to WWE writers. Here is an excerpt from his article:

"For the WWE, obviously the buck stops with Vince McMahon. Sure he has his writers and his inner circle but let’s get real…he books what he wants. To me, booking should be done on a 40-30-30 split. Thirty percent of the booking should be determined by the fans. They’re the ones buying the tickets! They should get what they want to see! If the real world operated like professional wrestling, if I went to McDonald’s and ordered chicken nuggets, but the chef decided he knew better than me what I wanted and instead gave me a Big N Nasty (if you don’t know, look it up), I’d hop the counter, walk straight into the kitchen, and punch him right in his mealy mouth. Then maybe he would learn his lesson! If I like McDonald’s and I want to eat their food…I should get what I pay for! Thirty percent should be dictated by the workers themselves. Of course, this means they should have significant input on their match structure, finishes, and have reasonable creative input on finishes and angles. And the remaining 40 percent should be determined by the person in charge. The buck does have to stop somewhere. But this is a dying art. "
