Edward Koskey, Steven Guerrieri and Ryan Ward. Who are these people you might ask? Well, they are quite significant when it comes to running the WWE. These three are the creative writers for RAW, Smackdown, NXT and Total Divas. Ryan Ward has received tons of praise for his work behind the scenes with NXT alongside Triple H.

As you might imagine, there are a lot of people running things backstage during a live telecast, from agents to producers to creative writers to backstage personnel. It simply isn’t as easy as it seems. There is a lot of people backstage running this well oiled machine every week. Ironically, most of these people are former WWE superstars. One of them that didn’t make this list is former ECW commentator, Joey Styles. The former voice of ECW is the Digital Media Content Director for the WWE.

Styles certainly isn’t the only former wrestling personality to be working for the WWE. Here are 12 other former wrestlers that you didn’t know are working for the WWE.

Quite the rollercoaster ride for Joey Mercury. In 2007, Mercury was released by the company; not only was he released, but he was also given a deep talk by the owner of the company Vince McMahon. McMahon knew Mercury had been battling with a long drug addiction, and Vince urged Joey to get cleaned up before it was too late. These words really helped Mercury down the road.

Departing from the WWE in the early 2000s, Billy Gunn and the Road Dogg were not too pleased with the way they were handled. They were extremely bitter and took a lot of their frustrations out on Triple H during shoot interviews. Surprisingly in 2012, Hunter would contact the duo, and they would later make their in-ring return, shocking the WWE Universe. Triple H later eased them out of the ring and assigned them to new roles with the company. Road Dogg is working as a producer backstage, while Billy Gunn is a trainer with WWE’s developmental brand NXT. In addition, Gunn was also included as a trainer on WWE’s reality show, Tough Enough. Talk about a strange turn of events.
