Kevin Dunn, a key figure in WWE for over 3 decades, is leaving the company as Executive Producer & Chief, Global Television Distribution, PWInsider has reported.

His departure is linked to internal changes following the Endeavor acquisition. Dunn’s decision to retire is reportedly influenced by his unwillingness to adhere to new directives and a clash in visions on TV production strategies, particularly cost-cutting measures.

Despite previous rumors of his departure, WWE never asked him to leave, and he was urged to stay on by the Board of Directors during Vince McMahon’s initial retirement in July 2022.

Dunn’s exit is not entirely surprising, given his long-standing association with McMahon and the shift in power dynamics after the Endeavor acquisition.

His departure holds significant implications, as Dunn played a crucial role in shaping the atmosphere, tone, and production of WWE over the past few decades, ranking closely behind McMahon and Triple H in influence.

Fightful Select reported the following about the backstage reaction to Dunn’s departure:

“Several shocked talent, who had no idea of the move. Some in WWE think that his role will likely be divided, as several have trained in aspects of Dunn’s role.”
