Vince McMahon returned to WWE on January 11, 2023, and that turned the company hierarchy upside down. The billionaire re-hired his close aides to help him with a potential sale of his company. That said, another top official has resigned.
Ringside News exclusively reported that Vince McMahon came back to the WWE offices in Stamford earlier this month. He also brought back Brad Blum as his Chief of Staff, just a month and a half after WWE let him go.
PW Insider is now reporting that Matthew Drew has parted ways with the company. Drew was Senior Vice President of International, a position he took up in June 2021. According to the report, his exit came last week. He was tasked with “growing WWE’s brand and business outside of the United States.”
In addition, Drew worked “with other company leaders to devise WWE’s international strategy for live events, digital, consumer products and new revenue opportunities.”
Drew is the latest vice president to part ways with the company after Stefanie Fiondella and Adam Hopkins tendered their resignations. Both Fiondella as well as Hopkins were Vice President of Communications.
As previously reported, WWE was making room for a potential sale with office cuts. There is also the feeling in WWE that Vince McMahon could make his television return at any time. That said, the boss hasn’t attended any creative meetings since his return.
