WWE Gives Adam Pearce a Promotion, Other High Level Executives Gain More Power

As noted before, WWE recently has been making several high level shakeups and hirings for their corporate office and backstage personnel.

PWInsider’s Mike Johnson reported that WWE recently gave Adam Pearce a promotion to become their new Director of Live Events. Johnson reported that this role usually meant overseeing live events and tours which could be another sign that WWE is currently preparing to resume running live events within the near future. This position reportedly was previously held by Michael Hayes.

Pearce’s current role as a producer for matches and as a lead producer reportedly will remain unchanged.

Johnson also reported that both President Nick Khan and CFO Kristina Salen have recently seen their power grow in the company and are now overseeing more departments that were previously not handled by their predecessors.
