As we reported earlier today here on eWn, there were multiple WWE corporate layoffs that took place in Stamford, CT on Friday.
According to a report from Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics, the layoffs involved the finance, sales and partnerships, human relations, and production departments.
Several Senior Vice Presidents were also let go, including the following names:
* Michael Weitz (SVP, Financial Planning)
* Craig Stimmel (Head of Global Sales and Partnerships)
* Karen Mullane (Controller and Chief Accounting Officer)
* Stewart Frey (SVP, Streaming Technology)
* Matt Geyer (SVP, Gaming)
WWE NXT backstage interviewer McKenzie Mitchell was also released from the company on Friday. While it remains to be seen whether additional talent cuts are coming, the releases usually begin at the corporate level and then the talent cuts are not far behind.
