Earlier this week an internal email from WWE President and CEO Nick Khan to all WWE employees was leaked.
The leaked message informed WWE employees of their requirement to return to the office full-time as of May 1.
While Brandon Thurston would later report that the date had been pushed back to May 8, there has now been a further update courtesy of Fightful Select (subscription required).
According to Fightful, while Khan’s email perhaps implies otherwise, the reality is that many of WWE’s staff have in fact been back working in WWE offices for quite some time.
“Sources that we spoke to said that most of the jobs that needed to be back in the WWE offices have been for quite some time, well before Nick Khan’s email to the staff this week”.
Thurston would report that the previously implemented ‘flexible’ working conditions that had been in effect since the COVID-19 pandemic were popular amongst WWE staff, according to a previous internal survey.
This was further added to by Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Newsletter who would state that WWE employee’s were “shocked” to receive Khan’s email earlier in the week, largely due to the short notice provided.
Meltzer would also write that many in WWE believe the decision to be a Vince McMahon one, rather than a decision by Khan. McMahon currently serves as the company’s executive chairman.
No matter the case, WWE is in the process of finally moving to their new headquarters in Stanford, CT and away from their long-term home of Titan Towers.
