WWE Releases RAW Writer Kenice Mobley

Kenice Mobley’s WWE tenure has come to an end.

According to a report from Fightful’s Sean Ross Sapp, Mobley was released by the company on Friday afternoon. Mobley had recently started working for the WWE writing team after being hired last month.

Mobley made headlines this week after a recent appearance on the Asian Not Asian Podcast, where she revealed that WWE did not require her to know anything about the product itself, but said her background in film and comedy writing was enough to qualify her for the role. Despite her lack of product knowledge, Mobley said she truly hadn’t started yet (at the time of the recording) but her job would have been to write segments in between matches.

“Yes, I have just been hired by WWE, Mobley said. “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.’”

The podcast appearance (which was recorded last month around the time she was hired) also showed Mobley had trouble remembering current WWE Champion Bobby Lashley‘s name. During the show, she referred to him as “Bobby Ashley or Bobby Lashley” and noted that she “really should know that.”

Update: Sapp later added that he was told the fan reaction to Mobley’s podcast appearance had little or nothing to do with WWE’s decision to release her. It was noted that it was “more of an internal concern” and is not sure what the promotion told her upon informing her of her release.
