PWInsider reports that a ton of people are being fired today by WWE as part of their house cleaning.
The firings appear to be on the corporate side but, as first reported on the Mat Men Podcast, there is talk of people in NXT UK being let go soon.
PWI reports that people on the digital side were hit hard and Jaylar Donlan, WWE’s EVP of their Advanced Media Group, was among those that was let go. He had worked there for eith years. Now with WWE content moving over to Peacock, there is obvious concern about some of the people who were working on the WWE Network. The network still exists outside of the United States so some people would need to be kept on board.
PWI also notes that there were a lot of other people let go today, including some names that came as a shock to some because of how important they were to the company. There is a belief that some company divisions may be going away.
