High Ranking WWE Official

F4WOnline.com originally reported Robert Zimmerman, WWE's Senior Vice President of Corporate Communications, Media Relations, and Public Affairs, has left the company. It has been confirmed that Zimmerman is no longer with WWE.

Zimmerman was a big name for WWE in the public relations department regarding corporate matters over the years. Zimmerman is well known for publicly defending WWE during Linda McMahon's 2010 and current 2012 U.S. Senate campaigns in Connecticut. WWE consistently gets attacked for their practices and content by McMahon's political opponents. Zimmerman has dealt with those statements in both the public and directly with those candidates who make them.

The reasons for his departure is no yet known.

Owen Hart's Birthday

Owen Hart would have turned 47 today. On May 23rd, 1999 an equipment malfunction during Hart's entrance as the Blue Blazer at the Over the Edge pay-per-view caused him to free fall to the ring at the Kemper Arena in Kansas City, Missouri. He would later be pronounced deceased that evening during the broadcast.
