WWE Hires a Wrestling Writer to Write Wrestling

Via Baltimore Sun

Kevin Eck, the wrestling blogger/columnist for the Baltimore Sun announced today that he has accepted an offer to join the WWE Creative Team. This is a monumental occasion seeing that Eck covered wrestling for a living and is an actual fan rather than a failed sitcom writer who is trying to collect a paycheck between doing 2 Guys, 2 Girls, 1 Cup, a Pizza Place and Law and Order: Petty Crimes Unit and CBS' televised adaptation of the Jesus M. Christ Twitter feed.

More and more, it seems like the culture is changing in Stamford, or at least it's appearing to change. Maybe the pendulum is swinging back to a more old school feel, or at least one that embraces wrestling, whether in traditional forms or under a guise that still unmistakably retains its feeling as the unique form of entertainment it is rather than something it really isn't.

And above all else, a warm congratulation to Eck, who is getting what is hypothetically a dream job. Hopefully, the culture within the company when it comes to the atmosphere has changed too, because I'd hate for him to have to endure things like flying down to Florida for a meeting at Vince McMahon's condo, only to be sent home without Vince even opening his front door.
