Stephanie McMahon Firing Two Top WWE Names?

Vince McMahon recently sent shock waves with his announcement. He announced that he is retiring from his roles as Chairman and CEO of WWE. It was later clarified that he was also done with his work on creative.



WWE could see some more backstage changes

A new update emerged to that initial report by Fightful Select has revealed there are rumors among talent that expect Kevin Dunn to be the next to leave, though for now Dunn and Bruce Prichard were the points of contact on SmackDown. Dunn was also a part of the talent meeting that was held earlier yesterday. There is a 50-50 chance Prichard might be departing the company, while Dunn is expected to be gone by the end of the year. Stephanie McMahon and Triple H have had heat with Dunn and Prichard in the past.

One thing of note is that when the same talent speculated that John Laurinaitis was being let go from the company, that ended up being the case, and now they’ve talked about Dunn being gone next. Reports online expect Dunn to be gone from WWE by the end of 2022. Many speculate Bruce Prichard is also not longed for WWE. If Dunn did leave the company, that would mean another major shift for WWE in a matter of a few days, As of now Stephanie McMahon and Nick Khan are Co-CEOs of WWE, while Triple H is EVP of Talent Relations. No other shifts have been confirmed or announced by WWE, but if Dunn leaves, it will be another major change behind the scenes.

According to the latest Wrestling Observer Newsletter, McMahon, along with Dunn, his longtime associate and EVP of WWE Television Production, were absent from “WWE SmackDown” last week in Orlando, Florida which was certainly a rare occurrence.  We will have to see what is planned next, now that Vince has departed the company.
