Michael Levin, who held key roles within WWE for over seven years, including Vice President of International Events and General Manager of Emerging Markets, recently parted ways with the company, as confirmed by PWInsider through multiple sources.

Based out of WWE’s London office, Levin’s departure appears to have occurred as part of the ongoing integration of WWE and UFC by the TKO Group, with his position being phased out.

Notably, Levin was present at the Backlash: France event just last weekend, where he enthusiastically promoted the milestone on his LinkedIn profile three days prior:

“Amazing weekend in Lyon for the first ever WWE Live TV and Premium Live Events in France. The crowd was unlike anything I’ve ever seen.. 
Multiple records shattered:
– Highest Grossing Friday Night Smackdown in Company History
– Highest Grossing Arena Event in Company History
– Highest Grossing Event in Company History in France


Couldn’t have done it without our incredible partner David Rothschild and team, and the face of WWE in France Philippe Chereau and Christophe Agius who have helped build this rabid fanbase over the years. And thanks to the team at LDLC Arena for hosting in their beautiful new arena. Merci Beaucoup.”

Levin initially joined WWE in August 2016 after a stint as Senior Vice President, Brand Partnerships for SFX Entertainment. His roles evolved over time, transitioning from VP of International to VP of International Events in 2019. In July 2020, he was further elevated to the positions of GM Emerging Markets and VP, International Live Events, a role he held until his recent departure.

Prior to his tenure at WWE, Levin also held notable positions at Ticketmaster and Live Nation, bringing a wealth of experience to his roles within the entertainment industry.
