• Backstage News On How Vince McMahon Is Feeling About Recent Releases
WWE recently released over 40 employees due to budget cuts caused by coronavirus pandemic.
According to Brad Shepard, Vince McMahon is feeling miserable after releasing these employees, as they had to release some of the longtime employees too:
“Vince is miserable over this, for what it’s worth. Lots of loyal people from the office who’ve been on the WWE team for most of their professional lives are sitting at home not getting paid now.
The return date given to employees furloughed was July 1st, but that isn’t concrete. Employees may return sooner or later than that; it’s just the date they’ve been given to use on unemployment applications.
There’s no word on when the office opens back up. I’m sure Trump has a big influence on what happens. Vince being a Trump guy, you know he’ll be first in line to try and open things back up as soon as possible. That could be very good news for the employees furloughed.”
