Report: Several WWE Layoffs Made WWE

WWE has reportedly made a number of employee layoffs today (May 23).

As reported by Mike Johnson of PWInsider, there were a “few” staff layoffs, including some “long-standing” employees.

The exact names of all the employees let go by the company, or the department of which the cuts affected have not been learned at this time, however, Fightful Select has been able to learn two of the names let go.

Fightful have reported that Senior VP of Entertainment Relations Kristen Prouty was one of the names let go.

Prouty had been with WWE since 2000, being reportedly “instrumental” in the deal that saw Logan Paul sign with the company.

The other departure confirmed by Fightful’s report is Talent Operations and appearances manager Tavia Hartley, who had been with WWE since 2021.

As of right now WWE have not confirmed the layoffs themselves.

The exact reasoning for any employee layoffs is also not yet known, with PWInsider noting that it could not confirm whether the cuts had any relation to the news broken earlier today regarding a significant merger of WWE and UFC’s live events divisions.

WrestleTalk will provide further updates as more details regarding the cuts are learned.

This year has seen many key office members depart the company including former Executive Producer Kevin Dunn, who has been with the company for over three decades as well as former COO Brad Blum who resigned from the company in early May.

Several WWE talent cuts have also been made this Spring both on the main roster and in WWE NXT, with stars such as Jinder Mahal, Gable Steveson and Cameron Grimes.
