WWE seems like quite the revolving door as of late, especially with and quite frankly, even the November 4th roster cuts that occurred. Even before that, CFO, Kristina Salen made her departure from the company, she being replaced by Frank A. Riddick III, who’s been with the company for a while as well.
On her way out, Salen made this official statement after ‘stepping down’:
“I started at WWE during the global pandemic and I am proud of what I accomplished with Vince’s leadership and the tremendous team. We returned to live event touring, exceeded expectations, raised guidance for the year, and have laid a strong foundation for the future. I look forward to WWE’s continued success.”
Vince McMahon chimed in as well, as he put over Salen’s replacement in a big way. They are obviously hoping that he sticks around longer.
“Working closely with Frank for many years, we have great confidence in his ability to execute our company’s strategy to increase revenues and drive shareholder value by engaging our global fanbase with phenomenal content. I want to thank Kristina for her contributions to WWE and wish her well in her future pursuits.”
Salen’s replacement, Frank A. Riddick III, also added a few words officially on the matter after Salen left.
“I’ve had the great fortune of working with Vince McMahon and the talented people at WWE for over a decade and it’s an honor to join them on a full-time basis.”
Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics reports that former CFO Kristina Salen was not liked at WWE’s HQ offices. These sentiments were spoken of again after her now severed ties with the company. According to the aforementioned reports, she inspired people to want to quit their jobs apparently.
