A raft of poor creative decisions has left the WWE scrambling to keep fans on board in recent months.
And, with RAW ratings tumbling week on week, it looks like the organization has sought help from the son of a WWE Hall of Famer.
According to a report by SEScoops, the WWE have hired Dewey Foley, the son of Mick Foley with a view to the former beginning work in early 2016.

The role, per Wrestling Inc.'s Marc Middleton, will be as a creative assistant and he will have to impress WWE officials if he wants to earn a full-time role.
The WWE definitely need fresh ideas when it comes to the creative team after what has been a difficult end to 2015 - culminating in the cool reception to new champion Sheamus. But, considering his father's outspoken opinions on the WWE product right now, some may see it as a slightly strange move.
Mick Foley has consistently spoken out on social media about how the WWE has mishandled certain stars and let their viewers down with storyline choices.
Whether the former Superstar will have the ear of his son when he begins work in the new year remains to be seen.
Moreover, various reports this evening have pointed out Dewey Foley's own less-than-positive views on the WWE recently expressed on social media and his own personal blog.
For instance, per Wrestling Inc., Foley made comments back in 2014 in which he took shots at both Triple H and Vince McMahon.
Maybe the WWE, in this appointment, are willing to change their ways a little and embrace the ideas of their loudest critics.
