Vince McMahon Reportedly Had No Issue With Emmy-Winning Writer, Told Everyone To Congratulate Her

We reported last week that there was some heat on writer Jennifer Pepperman among the creative team in WWE for bringing her Emmy to a production meeting and setting it upon the table, not removing it even after Michael Hayes told her to. The reports said at the time that Vince McMahon laughed the incident off and went back to working on the show. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter has another account of the story which confirms that McMahon didn’t see it as a big deal and even congratulated Pepperman on her win.

Pepperman took a red-eye flight to Cincinnati for TV last week. Then she was going to drive from there to Louisville right after the show, so she kept her luggage at the arena and the Emmy was in her luggage. The issue was reportedly that she brought the Emmy at all. McMahon, when he saw the Emmy on the table, brought it up and told everyone to give her a standing ovation. The WWE’s company newsletter also later noted that she won the award. Michael Hayes had previously told her to take it down because of how it looked.
