– Steve Keirn, who is still under contract to WWE after being removed from his post last year as president of the company’s developmental program, participated in a three-hour-long shoot interview on Saturday in New Jersey discussing the behind-the-scenes aspects of his career.
Rob Feinstein, who conducted the interview, indicated on Facebook that the former Skinner still possesses a managerial role with WWE. Following the interview, he wrote on Facebook, “Steve Keirn he’s such a great guy and so good for the business. The WWE has one of the best in charge. Young guys are blessed to have him as their teacher.”
– Eric Pankowski, who reigned as WWE’s Senior Vice President, Creative and Development from February 2012 through March, has been named executive producer of Arsenio Hall’s syndicated late-night show, The Arsenio Hall Show, according to Deadline.com. The former head of WWE’s creative department is replacing Neal Kendall, who stepped down from the position. Pankowski joined CBS TV Distribution in May to develop first-run syndicated programming and oversee current shows.
Pankowski, who was tapped to replace longtime creative head Brian Gewirtz, was removed from the position because according to PWInsider.com, he was not receptive to concepts beyond his own and that ultimately cost him allies within the organization.
