Brandon Thurston of Wrestlenomics reports that there were several layoffs from WWE earlier today.
“I was told that WWE’s marketing division had been laid off today. Several people at the VP level have been laid off. Possibly part of a restructuring of that division. EVP Catherine Newman was hired as the new head of marketing this summer.”
There were other business changes today. In their latest SEC filing, it was announced that Barstool Sports CEO Erika Nardini has resigned from her position on the board of directors. The filing also officially announced that Michelle McKenna and JoEllen Lyons Dillon were elected to serve on the Board of Directors.
“Concurrent with the election of Ms. Dillion and McKenna, Erika Ayers Nardini has resigned from the board of directors,” the WWE filing said. “With the recent acquisition of Barstool Sports by Penn Entertainment, Ms. Ayers Nardini’s time will be focused on the next chapter of this company and partnership. Ms. Ayers Nardini’s decision to resign from the board was not due to a dispute or [WWE]its management or any matter relating to [WWE’s] operations, policies or practices.”
