Also, WWE brought back John D’Amico, who is a longtime WWE employee, to work the live events division as he is the Director of Production Management.

He was released last September due to budget cuts. D’Amico announced his return on his LinkedIn page on Tuesday night.

D’Amico wrote, “Thank you to everyone for the kind and encouraging words. I am thrilled to be back with WWE and looking forward building a new live production event team.”

He spent more than 30 years with the company until last September. These hires came after they released various employees and talent while also bringing back some people ahead of them going back to live event touring.
