UPDATE: Fightful has an update on other cuts being made at WWE today. Per the report, Senior Vice President of Entertainment Relations, Kristen Prouty, has been let go. Prouty had reportedly been part of WWE since 2000, and she’s been in her role as SVP of Entertainment Relations since 2005.

Fightful notes that Prouty was instrumental in WWE signing Logan Paul to a talent contract. Before joining World Wrestling Entertainment, she previously worked as a casting director and talent booker.

Additionally, Fightful reports that another veteran employee, Tavia Hartley, was also let go by WWE today. Hartley had reportedly been with the company since 2021, working as the Manager of Talent Operations and Appearances. Before joining WWE, she worked as a Senior Public Relations Manager for Team Epiphany.

ORIGINAL: PWInsider reports that there have been several employee layoffs in WWE today, including “long-standing” employees. It was said that there were “a few” layoffs, although it’s unknown which divisions were involved. One source believes it involved multiple departments.

As previously reported, TKO announced that it has merged the live event groups for both WWE and UFC into one division called the TKO Live Events Strategy Team. However, there’s no word on if the layoffs are related. TKO has been laying off employees while merging the two companies since buying WWE last year.
