WWE is going through a lot of changes as they merged into TKO Holdings Group with the UFC. They are under Endeavor’s umbrella, and debt is already associated with the company, so cuts are being made.

It was expected that several cuts are coming to WWE today. Nick Khan, the company’s CEO sent out an email to employees yesterday letting everyone know to work from home today. Human resources needed the extra time to conduct firings in private.
