More than 100 WWE Employees Get Laid Off

On September 15, WWE conducted layoffs that affected more than 100 employees across various departments. WWE President Nick Khan informed the staff via email, expressing appreciation for their contributions and offering best wishes for their future endeavors.

Departments such as the Insights & Analytics team, Marketing, Graphic Design, Live Events, WWE Network, and Podcasting experienced employee reductions. Notably, the Insights & Analytics team, which previously had over 20 members, saw 17 employees laid off, leaving only three in the department.

Smaller teams and divisions within WWE were reportedly spared from these layoffs.

This move was part of WWE’s transition into the newly formed TKO Group Holdings, as announced in an internal memo by President Nick Khan on September 14. The transition involves assessing existing operations to identify potential synergies across the organization.

As those affected by the layoffs move forward, the WWE community contemplates the implications of these changes for the company’s future in the entertainment industry.
