So incredibly happy to see Molly Holly get inducted into the @wwe 2021 Hall of Fame!!! I remember the first Women’s Royal Rumble I couldn’t believe I was going to be sharing a ring with her. Her talent is extraordinary and she the sweetest person I’ve ever met! ❤️Brie pic.twitter.com/Hp3gWywXQR

It seems in June that she was still in her “trial” period. That’s clearly changed.
Molly Holly is a talent through and through. She’ll create a significant impact on RAW in this new role.
Still, Molly Holly isn’t the only behind-the-scenes WWE employee creating some buzz. WNZ has more backstage news, below.
Backstage News On Rob Conway & Shawn Daivari
According to PW Insider, Rob Conway has returned to the WWE Performance Center. Once a WWE Tag Champion, he is now working as a Guest Coach.
Conway was a guest trainer at this facility in the fall of 2018. Randy Orton, a good friend of Conway’s, organized the stint.
Meanwhile, Shawn Daivari, a pro wrestling veteran, recently has come back to the WWE as a producer, full-time. He’s received plenty of praise since returning.
He came back in early June. At that point in time, he was at a SmackDown taping. He returned off the cusp of NWA tapings, in a producer role.
As some may recall, Daivari was a TNA X Division Champion. He was also a WWE producer originally hired in early 2019.
Sadly, he was released in 2020, due to COVID-19 budget cuts. After he was let go, he wrestled a bit for Impact Wrestling and MLW, plus other promotions.
The good news is, he’s back with the WWE full-time. The not-so-good news is, Ariya Daivari, his brother, was released from the company this past June.

Meanwhile, Pat Buck has some added responsibilities to his WWE Talent Relations duties. Buck currently produces RAW and SmackDown shows.
However, he’s also booking indie talents and extras needed for tapings. This was once done by Drake Wuertz (a.k.a. Draker Younger).
Unfortunately, Drake was released from his referee role this past May. As such, Buck has taken this job on.
Buck was the co-owner of a popular northeast promotion, known as Pro Wrestling Syndicate. In 2003, he debuted in the indies.
In August 2019, Buck became a WWE producer. Sadly, he was furloughed in April 2020, due to pandemic budget cuts.
He returned in the summer of 2020. Buck is often seen onscreen as a WWE “official”.
