WWE is launching a Talent Brand Management department

WWE is launching a Talent Brand Management department. The company says that the department will oversee all of the talent branding in and out of WWE. It is interesting that WWE would want to do this for outside projects since their talent are classified as independent contractors.

The department will help to establish rate cards for talent working outside of WWE and they will help establish opportunities for them outside of the company. The department will also oversee the talent social media. This sounds like an internal talent agency.

Here are the complete details from the job listing:
