New WWE Writer Doesn’t Know Bobby Lashley’s Name

You would think knowing the WWE Champion’s name is probably a bare minimum requirement to be a WWE writer, but apparently it isn’t.

New writer Kenice Mobley appeared on the Asian Not Asian podcast to discuss her new role, and seemingly her lack of any knowledge about WWE and wrestling.

She said:

“Yes, I have just been hired by WWE. Given the things that you know about me and my entire life and what I’m into, yes (that’s surprising). Yes, also a surprise for me. They did not require me to know anything about wrestling but I do have a background in film production and comedy writing and they’re like, ‘Perfect. Come on in’.

“So I am on the Monday Night Raw team. So there’s Monday Night Raw and Friday Night SmackDown and the people I know that are on it are Bobby – his name is either Bobby Ashley or Bobby Lashley and I really should know that. He’s like this giant Black guy and he and the people who are part of his crew, I know that they call – or at least as of last year, they called themselves The Hurt Business. The Hurt Business. They wear suits and they’re like, ‘We’re cool’.”

Well that’s a good start.

Many people have been critical of WWE for having a team of so many writers that haven’t been in the wrestling business, and this just really goes to show how the company views that situation.

Mobley is a stand-up comedian and has been featured on NBC, The Tonight Show and VICE in the past.
