WWE is going through a lot of changes, both in the ring and behind the scenes. Vince McMahon’s company is moving into a new headquarters, something that is not changed by Endeavor merging the company with the UFC. Now, employees are afraid that their days might be numbered.

We previously reported that WWE employees were told that they must return to the offices. The company is no longer letting employees do their jobs remotely. The email sent out made things very clear.

“As I have had the good fortune of meeting with so many of you over the last few months, it has become apparent to me that our business thrives on creativity and unparalleled work ethic. All of us physically together is a part of that. As such, we will be going back to what has always been the case prior to COVID, which is a return to five days a week in office.

Nothing replaces out ability to interact with one another as we collectively continue to built and represent our company. We will all connect better and be better. Monday, May 1, 2023, will be the start of our full time return to office.


For those based in Stamford, our first group has moved to our new HQ and the rest of us will be there shortly. We thank you for your patience with the process. If you have not yet seen it, it is a spectacular work space that we believe you will all be quite proud of.

Thank you for all. “

WWE allowed a number of employees to start working from home with the COVID-19 pandemic started. The company allowed employees to work remotely for some time, even longer than other organizations. Now, that time has come to an end.

With everything going on internally within WWE, the thought of returning to the company’s offices is not as cut and dry. Some are a bit nervous about the idea.

PW Insider dropped an update behind their Elite paywall, where they gave a few more details about WWE’s latest directive. Apparently, a few WWE employees are nervous that returning to the offices is going to be followed by a lot of people losing their jobs.

For some employees, there’s also the fear that post-merger, they may be out of a job and as if that wasn’t stressful enough, now they will be back in the office full-time, compounding that stress. There weren’t a lot of happy employees opening their emails.

We’ll have to see if WWE goes through a sweeping firing spree at their offices. With a merger with the UFC going down, some redundancies might be released. Hopefully, it doesn’t come to this, but mergers have historically been followed by some people within those companies losing their jobs.

What’s your take on WWE’s merger with the UFC? Is WWE preparing thier employees for another sweeping release? Sound off in the comments!
