WWE Suddenly Fire Top Name After Raw

Recent reports suggest that Executive Vice President of WWE Television Chris Kaiser has reportedly been released by WWE after nearly a decade with the company.



PWInsider has reported that Kaiser, who joined the company in 2015 and has been Executive Vice President of WWE television since 2021, has been released. The report suggests that he played a key role in the creation of the Thunderdome, which existed during the pandemic. Kaiser was an executive producer for shows like “Miz & Mrs,” “Total Divas,” and “Total Bellas,” to name a few. He initially joined the promotion as Senior Vice President of TV Production before being moved up to the role of EVP.

Kaiser was reportedly in the running to take over the role of long-time executive Kevin Dunn earlier this year after Dunn left the company, but the role eventually went to Lee Fitting.

WWE has released several backroom executives since coming under the TKO umbrella, with the first round of releases coming last September, and then another major string of exits in December. In May this year, WWE let go of a few more executives, including their Head of Corporate Social Responsibility and a Senior Vice President of Entertainment Relations, as well as Steve Rubin, who was Senior Director of TV Event Relations and was a part of WWE for over two decades.
