WWE Executive Leaves As Cost-Cutting Continues

Triple H WWE

Another WWE executive has left the company with cost-cutting believed to be behind TKO’s decision to eliminate another role.

Since WWE was taken over by Endeavor in September 2023, the company has undergone seismic changes behind the scenes.

The likes of former Executive Vice President of Development and Digital, Jamie Horowitz and Michael Levin, who held the title of Vice President of International Events and General Manager of Emerging Markets have been let go in recent months and now another name has been added to that list.

WWE Executive’s Role Eliminated

PWInsider reported that Chris Kaiser, who was the Executive Vice President of WWE Television, left the company on June 24th. Kaiser was part of WWE for nine years, beginning his tenure with the company as Senior Vice President of TV Production before being promoted to his most senior EVP role in 2021.

Chris Kaiser was also credited as Executive Producer for several WWE documentaries and reality shows including WWE’s Most Wanted Treasures, Total Divas, Miz & Mrs, Total Bellas, and WWE 24. Kaiser was also said to be very involved with the execution of the WWE Thunderdome during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer noted that Kaiser’s exit came about as a result of TKO eliminating his position as part of cost-cutting measures.
