AEW Snap Up Former WWE Vice President
A new report has indicated that a long-tenured former WWE Vice President has joined Tony Khan’s AEW, just three months after leaving Vince McMahon’s company.
Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reported back in January that Adam Hopkins had left WWE after spending 25 years with the company. His final title in the promotion was Vice President of Communications:
“Fightful has learned that WWE’s Vice President of Communications, Adam Hopkins, is out of the company after over 25 years. Hopkins worked in a variety of roles, and was a point of contact for a lot of us in the media in preparing for events and setting up interviews.”
The departure came after another period of upheaval in WWE when Vince McMahon forced his way back onto the company’s Board of Directors before being installed as Executive Chairman.
Now Mike Johnson of PWInsider has reported that Adam Hopkins has begun working for Tony Khan’s AEW and started at the Dynamite taping in St. Louis that took place on the 29th of March. There is no word yet as to what Hopkins’ official role in the company will be but given his history in WWE he is expected to be part of the PR/Communications department.
