Rob Fee brought into the fold of WWE.
WWE has hired Rob Fee to be their Director of Long-term Creative, per Fightful Select. Fee started with the company in September. The following is written in Fee’s LinkedIn profile:
He is a horror writer for Marvel – penning comics for Spider-Man, Daredevil, and The Avengers. He was head writer on multiple Disney shows, including 100 episodes of Disney XD’s top rated series PLAYER SELECT.
In the report, it is noted that prior to Windham Rotunda (Bray Wyatt) being released in 2021, Fee pitched the idea of a ‘Fiend-related movie’. Fee has been working on the production of the White Rabbit Q.R. code messages.
In addition to the credits listed, Fee produced The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air reunion, WAFN, The IGN Show and has acting experience as well.
On the latest episode of Rewind-A-Raw, Wai Ting and John Pollock dove into the most recent Q.R. code messages.
Vince at home like “what does ‘long-term’ mean goddamn it”
A horror writer ? I wonder who he’s going to work with. I don’t need a QR code for this one.
Not that a horror writer can only write horror / or a comic book guy can only write comic book stuff… But I’m growing in my thought that the White Rabbit stuff is a sort of universe-challenging storyline coming. Bray with a larger group of big baddies, with a horror-tinge to it. Bray, Kross, Dexter, Braun, etc.
Could be completely wrong.
Well since we’re drawing tenuous connections… one of the coordinates was for Corbin, Kentucky and this week’s puzzle had “Gacy” in binary code. Let’s build a cult of non-descript followers!
There is so much similarity between writing pro-wrestling and comic books I’m surprised that there hasn’t been more cross over between them. Aubrey Sitterson is the only one who comes to mind who worked for WWE and mainly IDW.
For both there is a combination of long and short term storytelling, trying to create fresh storylines with match-ups we have seen over and over again. There are heel turns and face turns. Writers need to be collaborative with artists & editors or producers & wrestlers.
Booking Roman Reigns vs Brock Lesnar for the 10th time is probably very similar to trying to make Thor vs Loki different after 50 years of rivalry.
