WWE started their own talent management group to help Superstars establish their brands. Stephanie McMahon was very happy about the possibilities and lauded this big step for the company. Now that division has closed.
According to PW Insider, WWE has closed their entire talent management group. This group was supposed to represent talent to help them gain third party deals as well.
They reportedly made the decision to shutter the doors on their talent management group a couple of weeks ago. This division didn’t last very long at all, only about four or five weeks.
Despite big plans to represent their own talent to monetize third party bookings including sponsorships, film and TV roles, World Wrestling Entertainment has already shut down their Talent Management Group.
This reason was launched to make more money off of sponsorship deals, film, and TV roles as well. They were supposed to help talent get booked outside of WWE, but this project didn’t last very long at all.
They opened up this division after WWE sent down an edict that banned Superstars from taking third party deals on their own.
Did WWE mess up by closing down this division so soon? Sound off in the comments!
