The fans certainly enjoyed WrestleMania 38 that recently wrapped up. The marquee show featured huge matches including Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar and Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair. It turns out Pat Buckridge (professionally known as Pat Buck), who produced the two matches over the weekend has officially resigned from World Wrestling Entertainment today. The report was confirmed by PWInsider.com.
Pat Buck departs WWE
PWInsider reported that:
“Buck, who produced Roman Reigns vs. Brock Lesnar (with Michael Hayes) and Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair, informed the company this afternoon he was departing. The word making the rounds is that Buck stated that with the matches he worked on for Wrestlemania 38, he had achieved his goals of producing main events on the biggest show of the year and now needed to refocus his energies on his family, something the current WWE schedule could not consistently afford him the ability to do.”
It has been noted that beyond his duties as a Producer, Buck was also working in Talent Relations and had been the liason between the company and independent talents that were booked as extras at PPVs and TV tapings. He had also been scouting new potential signings.
Further, Buck operates the Create-A-Pro Wrestling Academies in New Jersey and Long Island with Brian Myers, who is also the owner of WrestlePro in New Jersey. He signed with WWE as a producer back in 2019 after a long career of wrestling independently, including a long run with Ohio Valley Wrestling when it was a WWE developmental territory.
