Another WWE Departure Confirmed

Another WWE Departure Confirmed WWE

Just hours following the announcement of the departure of WWE’s EVP of Talent Dan Ventrelle, yet another name has now left the company.

As confirmed by PWInsider’s Mike Johnson, WWE’s Senior Vice President of Athlete ID & Development Trent Wilfinger has now departed the company.

Wilfinger had been with WWE since 2021, with 15 years in the sports industry prior to joining the company – over 11 of which were spent with Corporate and Athlete wellness company EXOS.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reports the following memo was sent within WWE:

WWE has begun the process of reorganizing its Talent Relations group. Moving forward, Chris Legentil, in addition to his new role in Comms, will help us in leading this new group. Matt Altman, in addition to his role in Marketing, will be working closely with Chris to help in this endeavor.

Talent Development and Recruiting will now report into Shawn Michaels.

All of Talent, which includes Talent Relations, Development and Recruiting, will continue to ultimately report into Paul Levesque.

As of today, Dan Ventrelle will be moving on from WWE. We thank Dan for his tremendous contributions.
