WWE upset their employees a lot today. They sent out a company-wide message putting a nix to promotions, raises, and bonuses.

Ringside News has learned that WWE sent out a company-wide email that they will not be giving out any more raises, promotions, or bonuses. They also held a meeting about the subject for some.

Someone directly involved with the situation at WWE HQ told us the mandate is, “On the office side, the actual employees are getting a salary freeze.”

Morale was left very low after this announcement was made. People at this meeting were members of production and employees at the corporate office. Still, a few are not surprised by this tactic.


WWE continues making big revenue every quarter and has continued doing so through the pandemic. That is one of the main reasons people are giving when complaining about this decision.

This announcement went out to corporate employees and other staff throughout the company, and not the Superstars.

Update: Fightful Select has also confirmed the report.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
