A WWE Executive is gone from the company following a company-wide email from Nick Khan letting staff know that cuts were coming.

When Endeavor officially acquired WWE this past Tuesday to form the new TKO group with WWE & UFC working together, it was obvious that some people would be losing their job. It is something that executives from Endeavor spoke about publicly as well as WWE’s President Nick Khan.

On Thursday, WWE President Nick Khan emailed staff to let them know that “workforce reductions” were coming on Friday, which meant that people who work for WWE would be losing their jobs. Here’s what Khan wrote in the email with thanks to PWInsider.

“Hi All,

As part of WWE’s transition into the newly formed TKO Group Holdings, we are evaluating our existing operations and systems to identify potential synergies across the business. This effort includes work force reductions, which will take place tomorrow.

Those whose roles have been impacted will be notified by our Human Resources team, who will share the details of their severance package. We are asking that everyone work remotely, Friday September 15, so we can ensure all conversations are handled privately and respectfully. We’ll send out a companywide email once all of tomorrow’s conversations have happened.

Our company is home to the most talented, creative, and hard-working employees in the world. WWE is a special place, which makes moments like this difficult. Just know that we have nothing but gratitude and admiration for everyone we have had the privilege to work alongside.

Thank you for all your contributions and dedication.

Nick Khan”

WWE has released Executive Vice President Jamie Horowitz

It has been reported by PWInsider’s Mike Johnson that Jamie Horowitz, who was WWE’s Executive Vice President of Development and Digital, is no longer with WWE. He is the first big name Executive that has lost his job following WWE’s post-Endeavor acquisition layoffs.

Horowitz worked for WWE since June 2021 and was brought into the company by current WWE President Nick Khan. Prior to working for WWE, Horowitz worked for DAZN as an Executive Vice President of Global Content.

There are expected to be more layoffs today as well as in the weeks ahead.
