WWE fired over 60 employees this week as they made sweeping cuts, primarily across the company’s digital and production departments. Now one division, WWE Media, will be overseen by Kevin Dunn. Company employees were told that no more firings are coming for now.
It was reported in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that a company meeting was held on May 26th. This meeting let employees know that they are not planning to cut any more staff. As we previously reported, those who are left are now left shell shocked.
The meeting was mandatory for all employees as the company also introduced a plan to get everyone back to the physical offices. Employees have been permitted to work from home throughout the pandemic.
It was also reported that the company told employees that they want everyone working in their offices again by July 6th. They are not requiring anyone to get vaccinated, but said that those who aren’t vaccinated should wear a mask.
This meeting was led by WWE President Nick Khan and CFO Kristina Salen via video call. Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon, and Triple H did not speak at the meeting.
