Former WWE executive Court Bauer (@CourtBauer) sent me a message moments ago that Eric Pankowski is out as Senior Vice President of Creative and Development at WWE.

Pankowski was hired in February of last year. He was reporting to Stephanie McMahon, and was responsible for the creative development of television content, managing WWE's creative writing teams and selling programming.

Speaking of Court, the latest episode of Wrestling Inc. Weekly with Court and myself is now available on iTunes at this link. In this week's episode, Court and I discuss Paul Bearer's passing, The Rock vs. John Cena not generating interest, The Undertaker's return, the build-up for WrestleMania so far, why managers should be brought back, Ric Flair and more.
