The problems and frustrations superstars have working within the structure of the WWE are well documented.

The likes of CM Punk and Alberto Del Rio have recently fallen victim to a combination of company politics and a corporate machine that churns through wrestlers, looking for the right combination to increase interest in the product.

Ryback is another who departed the company after having problems with the direction (or lack of direction) his character was receiving and in a wide-ranging interview with Sports Illustrated, he pointed the blame directly at his former boss.

Ryback claims that the WWE writers are so scared of Vince McMahon that they simply cannot do their job proper.ly. This prevents the company from creating buzzworthy angles because the writers play it safe to avoid upsetting the man in charge.

Ryback also notes how his promos were so scripted by Vince that his ability to get over as a heel was completely compromised.

The writing was so bad that Chris Jericho, one of the best promo guys in the business, even came to Ryback to ask why his work was so stale and out of touch.

When the WWE was at the height of its popularity in the Attitude Era the performers had much more room to freelance. That is how stars like The Rock and Steve Austin made their name.

Similarly, the one branch of WWE programming that is seen as growing and cutting edge is NXT, the one branch that Vince has nothing to do with as he leaves it under the direction of HHH and William Regal.

For the WWE to again grow as a business and get people talking Vince may have to loosen his grip on the company and let his employees get on with their jobs.
