As noted earlier today on PWInsider, WWE unleashed another round of firings and layoffs today with the WWE Network, production and digital sides all seeing heavy departures. has been told by multiple sources that a number of the divisions will be folded together and will now be overseen directly by Executive Vice President, Television Production Kevin Dunn.  That is expected to be announced to staffers later today.

One of the reasons for so many departures is that over the last year, the company has determined there were too many redundancies across multiple departments in those areas.  One example cited to is that there were two graphics departments, one for WWE TV production and one for digital and that they can easily be merged into one division, meaning the company could get that work done with a smaller group of staffers.

We are also told that the departures are also ripple effect of the company running under the pandemic, seeing that they can get by with far less across the board in terms of numbers.  One source noted that over the company history, they have shown they can "cut to the bone" if needed and still get things done and this is just the latest example of that.

As you can imagine, there are a lot of shellshocked employees, both those who exited today and those who remain, knowing they will have more responsibilities to deal with daily.  The Advanced Media Group was all but destroyed today, which has left a lot of people who worked to build that division heartbroken, as you can imagine.
