Another two front office executives have reportedly departed WWE. According to, Vice President of International Events and General Manager of Emerging Markets Michael Levin has left the company. Levin is said to be gone as part of the TKO merger and was with WWE since 2016.

According to Fightful Select, Steve Rubin, the Senior Director of TV Relations has left the company after a twenty six year career. There is no word on what led to his departure from WWE. Ric Flair has commented on Rubin’s departure, calling it the “worst professional move he has ever seen in his life.”

There is no word on who will replace either of them.

People have quit WWE before. Check out some departures:

Opinion: This is the kind of thing that happens in wrestling, especially when there are changes in who runs things behind the scenes. I’m not sure how many more of those people are going to be leaving, but at the same time, it’s always at least a bit sad to see someone lose their job because a new company bought the company. Hopefully everything settles down and no one else has to go, but there is a good chance that it will happen again.
