Nicole Dorazio left the company after working in the talent relations department for over ten years. She was employed as Jim Ross and John Laurinaitis' assistant (when they held the position) and no reason was given for her departure.
Raphael Morffi, who was in charge of promoting WWE live events in the Northeast region, has also been let go. Longtime WWE employee John Porco is now filling that role. Finally, Ann Russo-Gordan, who was previously in charge of WWE's Wellness and rehab programs, resigned due to health issues and fatigue. It is being said that Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are working on bringing in new executives that have experience with major sports organizations.
