Changes at the top of WWE have continued with a member of the company’s Board of Directors resigning from their role.
Since Vince McMahon made the bombshell announcement that he was stepping down from his roles as both WWE CEO and Chairman amid allegations of misconduct, there have been several high-profile changes to the management structure of the company.
First, Stephanie McMahon was named the new Chairwoman and Co-CEO alongside Nick Khan. Soon after, Triple H was elevated to the position of Head of Creative before recently being promoted again, this time to Chief Content Officer.
Meanwhile, a new EVP of Talent and a Chief Legal Officer were announced on September 9th, while two new members of the Board of Directors, Michelle McKenna and JoEllen Lyons Dillon, were named on September 16th.
In a further change to the Board announced at the same time as the new appointments, Erika Ayers Nardini has stepped down from her position. A new SEC Filing by WWE explains that her decision is related to the recent sale of Barstool Sports, of which Nardini is CEO.
“Concurrent with the election of Mses. Dillion and McKenna, Erika Ayers Nardini has resigned from the Board. With the recent acquisition of Barstool Sports by Penn Entertainment, Ms. Ayers Nardini’s time will be focused on the next chapter of this business and partnership.”
The filing also makes clear that Nardini’s decision was not due to any dispute’s with WWE or its management.
