With WWE Corporate currently advertising for a new lead writer, what better time to look at what exactly goes on within the confines of the WWE writers room.

Over the years, what started as a small collection of merely a few choice minds - the likes of Vince McMahon, Pat Patterson, Bruce Prichard, Jim Cornette, and Vince Russo - coming together to decide the best way to steer the WWE product, has changed into a completely different beast.

As of last year, WWE was reported to have a writing team comprised of 37 individuals. At the top of the food chain, of course, is Vince McMahon, and then there are seasoned industry veterans such as Prichard, Stephanie McMahon, Triple H, Road Dogg, and Michael Hayes involved in the process, yet the whole model of constructing WWE television is utterly unrecognisable from decades prior.

Crazy storyline pitches? The problems a lack of food can cause? No wrestling experience required? Based on hands-on experiences of former writers, here then are ten absolutely insane things that any new WWE writer can expect from the day-to-day creative process of Vince McMahon's sports entertainment juggernaut.
