Following the merger with the UFC after Endeavor acquired WWE, the company made employee cuts this past Friday.
The companies have since transitioned into one under TKO Holdings Group. The cuts were expected for months as departments from both companies joined into one for cost efficiency.
As you’d expect, morale in the company has since taken a hit. WWE President Nick Khan called for a mandatory meeting on Tuesday with Vince McMahon and Endeavor head Ari Emanuel.
The three executives spoke at the meeting, which lasted 12-15 minutes. They promised a great future for WWE and praised the success of the merger into TKO and WWE as a whole. The meeting was described as a “rah rah” type deal.
