The merging of WWE and UFC to form TKO Group Holdings led to significant names departing WWE in a major layoff spree. However, on-air talents haven’t been released.
It has been noted the merger between UFC and WWE has been completed which ended Vince McMahon’s historic era. Endeavor and WWE made the announcement that the deal has closed leading to the formation of TKO Group Holdings.
PW Insider reports that WWE fired over 100 employees today. This went down on the Friday after WWE and UFC’s merger into TKO Holdings Group was finalized. Previously, the outlet reported that they have not heard about any talent being released today. It appears that the layoffs today are only on a corporate level. Over 40 employees, maybe more than 50, lost their job with WWE.
Dana Warrior had been a part of WWE and she had a role in the WWE creative team. She left that role and found a place elsewhere. It has come to light that she has been released.
PW Insider has now reported that WWE’s firing spree is over for the day. In the end, there were a lot of people who lost their jobs, but anyone who still has their job with WWE right now will keep it for now.
