Report: WWE Releases Senior Vice President of Talent Development Canyon Ceman

Canyon Ceman is reportedly no longer with WWE.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that the company let Ceman, the Senior Vice President of Talent Development, go on Friday.

In recent weeks, rumors regarding Ceman’s termination had been floating around, but they were inaccurate prior to this report.

Ceman was widely viewed as one of the major players of NXT, as he played a crucial role in talent scouting and recruiting, among other tasks, for the black-and-gold brand. Given WWE NXT’s status as a developmental brand, it’s fair to say that Ceman has helped build the company’s current roster.
