Former WWE creative writer Jimmy Jacobs has come to the defense of the company over the criticism from fans about their product and the current state of Monday Night RAW.

Over the last few weeks, fans have voiced their take about how WWE is booking their programs. Every year in the Winter time, it’s known as a dead period for the company as they get through the Holidays and gear up for the road to WrestleMania.

However, the last two episodes of RAW have been heavily criticized by fans and it has shown up in its ratings. In fact, Monday’s edition of RAW averaged 2.193 million viewers, down from 2.285 million the previous week. As a result, this episode marks the worst viewership of all-time since records began.

Jacobs recently defended WWE from criticism when he wrote the following on his official Twitter account:

“Writing a 3 hour wrestling tv show every single week is fuckin hard.”

Jacobs followed up with a second tweet when he wrote, “Everybody is allowed to their opinion. I take zero offense to it. But one of the 1st things I learned writing is that it’s easy to point out the problems. The job is to come up with solutions.”
