WWE reinstates promotions and raises for employees


PW Insider reported Thursday that WWE corporate employees learned that raises and promotions have been reinstated.

That was the biggest news coming out of the Thursday all hands meeting according to PW Insider who also reported "the implication was that a big part of the staff would be receiving raises in the days and weeks ahead."

That followed news from February where a "large number" of employees learned they were getting a $3000 stock award. However, that news came days after they first learned of the promotion and raise freeze.

It has been a tumultuous year on the corporate side, starting with pandemic-related cuts and then in recent months with dozens of full-time employees let go due to restructuring as president Nick Khan continues to get his people into place. May was especially notable as some divisions, including Advanced Media, digital and WWE Studios, were restructured under Kevin Dunn. In April, WWE saw several longtime PR and communications people depart in addition to some talent relations leadership.
