Vince McMahon is back in charge of WWE, and he’s firing many people in the licensing department of WWE today.
A source in #WWE told me there have been cuts today, among various departments within the company.
In particular, the WWE Licensing department was hit hard, losing multiple people.

Batista’s final run in WWE before his retirement was against Triple H which culminated at Wrestlemania 35 a couple of years ago. One of the most popular lines during that feud saw Batista telling Triple H to give him what he wanted over and over again. Batista was also supposed to be inducted into the WWE Hall Of Fame last year but due to timing issues and scheduling conflicts, it did not end up happening. WWE also paid huge money for the return of Batista.
While Dave Bautista was supposed to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2020, this did not happen due to the worldwide pandemic and due to previous obligations on Batista’s end. However, fans have been clamoring for ‘The Animal’ to get his due and to be inducted as quickly as possible.
Former AEW world champion CM Punk shared a birthday message for the former WWE World Champion Batista in his Instagram post.
“HBD!” Punk wrote
