They have a lot to lose. There have been multiple changes behind the scenes in WWE in recent weeks and it does not seem like those changes are going to end anytime soon. The changes have included all kinds of people leaving the company, meany of which have been on the corporate side. Now it seems like even more names have left as another department is being shaken up.
According to Brandon Thurston, WWE has laid off several members of the marketing department, including some as high as the level of Vice President. This comes as the marketing department has been shaken up, including Catherine Newman being named as the new head of marketing earlier this year. There is no word on if more people will be laid off anytime soon.
I'm told there were layoffs today to WWE's marketing department. Multiple people at the VP level were let go. Possibly a part of a restructuring to that department. EVP Catherine Newman was hired this summer as the new head of marketing.

Opinion: This is one of those corporate things that doesn’t make much of a difference to fans but it is the kind of change that big companies have to undergo at some point. Maybe WWE feels that they can streamline things a bit and find a new way to keep things growing in the marketing department. WWE is already the biggest name in wrestling but there are always more people to reach so why not see what they can do?
What does this mean for WWE? What other changes could they make? Let us know in the comments below.
