Nine producers – Dave Finlay, Mike Rotunda, Shane Helms, Billy Kidman, Pat Buck, Shawn Daivari, Scott Armstrong, and Sarah Stock Lance Storm have all reportedly been told they are surplus to requirements.
WWE has yet to confirm the news on those nine employees, and the decision to furlough those staff may be in effect instead.
The news comes after a conference call on which McMahon wanted there would be cuts because of the pandemic.
And a statement was released by the WWE explaining just why the decision had to be made.
“Due to COVID-19 and current government mandated impacts on WWE and the media business generally, the Company went through an extensive evaluation of its operations over the past several weeks,” a statement read.
