Amid big changes to WWE’s management, yet another executive has left the company following Vince McMahon’s return to the Board of Directors.

Vince McMahon stunned the wrestling world in the first week of January 2023 when it emerged he was using his role as majority shareholder of WWE to strong-arm his way back onto the Board of Directors – despite the Board previously unanimously voting against such a return.

His daughter Stephanie McMahon then resigned from her roles as Chairwoman and co-CEO before Vince McMahon was installed as Executive Chairman. While his role is believed to be on the corporate side of the company there are those within WWE who believe “the countdown is on” until he assumes control of creative from Triple H.

Following McMahon’s return, Vice President of Communications Adam Hopkins left his role with the company after 25 years and now PWInsider has reported that another executive is gone. Matthew Drew served as Senior Vice President, International, heading up the international division of the sports entertainment giant, and had only been in the role since June 2021.

Drew’s role is said to have involved “growing WWE’s brand and business outside of the United States.” The SVP was instrumental in managing the company’s global media partners as well as working “with other company leaders to devise WWE’s international strategy for live events, digital, consumer products, and new revenue opportunities.”
