WWE and UFC’s merger is over, and now TKO Holdings Group is seeing several employees lose their jobs. Today is the day for several people, and the actual number of people within WWE who are getting cut today is quite sad.
Ringside News previously reported that Jamie Horowitz has been released from WWE. He previously held the role of Executive Vice President of Development and Digital. WWE also fired Head of Marketing, Catherine Newman, from her position today. Amanda Bloom also joined that list of firings later on. Now we have another name to add.
PW Insider reports that WWE has fired Andy Levine. He was previously the Vice President, International & Platform Strategy for the company.
PWInsider.com has confirmed that Andy Levine, who held the post of WWE Vice President, International & Platform Strategy is among the exits today as part of the post-Endeavor acquisition layoffs today.
Levine first came to the company in 2018 after working for Green Matters and Distractify.
Andy Levine managed WWE’s International social and digital strategy, production, teams, and agencies across various international markets. This involved close collaboration with WWE’s programming, partnerships, marketing, monetization, brand development, talent, content operations, rights strategy, and business planning divisions.
Additionally, Levine headed WWE’s Platform Strategy team, responsible for overseeing partner relationships, competitive analysis, and communication efforts aimed at driving growth and revenue across programming, e-commerce, and partnerships.
As we previously reported, two divisions were hit especially hard in today’s layoffs. Those two divisions were the WWE Network and podcasting divisions. It is widely believed that the cuts will not impact the WWE roster, as well as production team, on-air talents, or individuals closely involved with talents, such as producers and coaches.
This is an exciting time for WWE’s investors, but their employees are still bit nervous that they will be called in for a Zoom call to inform them of their release. For more on this story, and many more, please stay tuned with us here at Ringside News.
