Freddie Prinze Jr Was Once Going To Be Head Writer Of WWE's SmackDown

Freddie Prinze Jr is opening up about his time with the WWE, where he was once considered to be the head writer of SmackDown.

Turns out that he 44-year-old actor worked with the pro wrestling organization from 2008 to 2009, as part of the creative staff, and then returned in 2010-2012 and was a producer and director for the programs.

Talking in a new interview with Chris Van Vliet, Freddie detailed his career at WWE and his thoughts about the future of pro wrestling as well.

“I was on the jet with Vince [McMahon] for every episode. I made every live show; I just didn’t go overseas. That was it and it would drive him nuts, but I was there all the time,” he shared. “I saw people’s careers get made and destroyed on a whim. I would fight sometimes and Vince would laugh!”

Freddie also revealed that he wasn’t actually paid for his positions at the company, instead, “I took stock. So, my whole salary was stock and we just sold it last year.”

“It was a lot and I got it at nothing because it was nothing in ’09 or 2010. But I believed in what I was doing at the time and I believed in the company,” he says. “I saw them selling stock because he was purchasing the XFL at the time. So, I thought they were getting ready to sell the company….I sold all my stock and cashed out. Then, I just kind of sat back and waited.”
