For the past few months, WWE has been releasing quite a few Superstars from all brands. This also included several members of staff including backstage personnel and others. Since then, fans have been worried if more talents will be fired by the company once again.
As reported earlier, WWE has released several officer workers recently. This included Stan Stanski, who was WWE’s Senior Vice President of Creative Services. Due to this employees believed that no one was safe from getting released in WWE.
According to PWInsider, WWE’s Chief Financial Officer Kristina Salen has stepped down from her role. This comes just one day after she was part of the company’s quarterly earnings call. Salen also released a statement regarding her stepping down from the role.
“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.”
In her place, Frank A. Riddick III has been named Chief Financial Officer & Chief Administrative Officer. Riddick has served as a member of the WWE Board of Directors for more than 13 years and previously held the role of interim CFO in 2020.
Riddick III will now oversee financial planning & analysis, strategy, controllership, investor relations, tax, data analytics, technology, event travel and facilities. Despite this, it is not known why Kristina Salen stepped down from her role in the first place.
