WWE Cuts Big Topic Of Backstage Chatter At SmackDown

Vince McMahon SmackDown WWE

WWE Superstars were preoccupied with one topic of conversation at SmackDown – the recent office cuts in the company according to a new report.

There have been plenty of changes in a very short space of time in WWE, most notably following Vince McMahon’s return and ascension to the position of Executive Chairman of the Board of Directors. This has led to plenty of people either leaving or seemingly being forced from their positions, and it seems like the shakeup doesn’t end there.

Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful reported that the company’s Vice President of Communications, Adam Hopkins, has left the company after two and a half decades in his role.

Former WWE Champion Big E commented on that report calling Hopkins “a true professional and a great human.”

Fightful Select noted that there are set to be more cuts to office personnel and they followed up that report by saying the cuts were the hot topic of conversation backstage at SmackDown in Detroit, Michigan. It was also noted that many stars were surprised by Hopkins’ departure.

The 20th of January edition of SmackDown saw tag team action take centre stage with The Banger Bros, Legado del Fantasmo, Hit Row, and Imperium all advancing in the tournament to crown new number one contenders for the SmackDown Tag Team Championship.
