Another WWE Departure Confirmed

Another WWE Departure Confirmed WWE

Another backstage WWE departure has been confirmed as the big shifts behind-the-scenes under the TKO umbrella continue.

Another WWE executive is reportedly gone from the company.

As reported by PWInsider, Chris Kaiser was “cut” from his position in World Wrestling Entertainment this afternoon.

He had served as Executive Vice President of WWE Television.

According to his LinkedIn, Kaiser had been with the company since 2015, starting as Senior Vice President of Television Production after working as the Vice President of Production for Viacom’s Spike and TV Land prior to that.

In 2018, he became Executive Vice President of WWE Television Operations and Production, and in June 2021 was moved to Executive Vice President of WWE Television.

Kaiser was noted as Executive Producer for several series such as WWE 24, Total Divas, Total Bellas, and Miz & Mrs.

He was also said to be “intricately involved” in the creation of the ThunderDome arena that was used during the pandemic.

Kaiser is the latest in a growing list of cuts and departures since WWE merged with the UFC to form TKO under Endeavor.

A few days ago, it was revealed that former SmackDown head writer Ryan Callahan had departed as well.
