Latest on “shocking” firing of major WWE name

WWE is no stranger to letting people go. While it’s often the wrestlers who get fired, sometimes big names get fired from the company at executive level. This happened recently when James Kimball was fired and there was an update on this.

James Kimball served as SVP of Talent Operations and Strategy for WWE. He was hired as Vice President of Business Operations in 2020 and worked closely with Triple H. His time with the company ended when he was fired for a staff violation.

In the latest update to this story, Fightful Select noted that “HR injury” is pretty broad and could mean no one else was directly affected. However, there is confirmation of this, apart from the fact that it could mean a variety of things.

It was also noted that James Kimball’s firing from an unnamed talent was deemed “shocking” and the former worked closely with Triple H during his time in WWE.

Fightful has learned that WWE SVP of Talent Operations & Strategy James Kimball is no longer with the company.

We were told it was a breach of HR and he was fired immediately last week.…

Several UFC and WWE wrestlers told Fightful that they were surprised by Kimball’s departure. In contrast, another wrestler stated that Kimball was viewed as someone who would be associated with the Stamford-based company for years to come.

The report categorically stated that this decision had nothing to do with Vince McMahon’s return to the company.
