WWE went through another round of cuts on Friday. They were most, if not all furloughed staffers. Now another name has been confirmed.
According to PW Insider, Derek Casselman, Director of Venue Merchandise and Remote Operations for WWE, was also released from the company. Casselman had been with WWE since the early 1990’s.
A ton of departments were slashed when the company changed their operations. The venue merchandising department certainly saw a cut as their services were no longer needed. WWE wasn’t traveling anymore. There were no live venues, or fans to buy merchandise.
