Vince McMahon held a call this afternoon to address WWE employees. 

During the call, McMahon said that some employees will be furloughed. Vince said that he hopes to have them back when the situation is resolved, but there is no timeline. Furloughed employees will receive a text message from the WWE Human Resources immediately.

WWE will also be cutting talent, which will be permanent cuts. There should be announcements on that as soon as today.

Construction of the new WWE headquarters in Stamford, CT has been delayed six months. The move was expected to happen in early 2021.

WWE has also cancelled third party consulting contracts.

WWE also sent out an alert earlier today that they were postponing their annual meeting of shareholders. As of this writing, no further details were announced and their corporate website is down.

Hawkins & Anderson? I hate it when WWE releases 1/2 of tag teams. Ugh. Sucks that it seems like people who wanted to be there are released over people who wanted to leave.

 

Honestly, I hope they can all come back once this is all over. No one should be out of work right now.

Bro, The OC were just in the main event of WrestleMania. And Drake Maverick was supposed to be on the Interim Cruiserweight Championship tourney starting tonight. Crazy.

I stand corrected. My point stands though about WWE hiring them all back once this is all over and done with.
