WWE’s Adam Pearce has confirmed he has a new role in the company, and will now serve as WWE’s Director of Live Events.
Pearce confirmed the news to Givemesport, saying:
"[Director of Live Events] would be my official job title, yes. Frankly, it doesn’t change a whole lot of what I do. You’ll still see me officiating RAW and SmackDown, while I now have a more vested interest in what’s going to happen on our live events.
"I had that anyway before receiving that title. But now I have a more supervisory role and a say in what’s coming to your town. That’ll take up a lot of time on my clock day-to-day which is great and it’s part of the business I’ve always loved."
With WWE scheduled to return to the road in July, the timing of Pearce’s promotion is significant. "Being able to transition [to touring] and give back to the WWE Universe that has stuck with us, it’s going to be a lot of fun,” said Pearce "We’ll deliver what we do and put smiles on faces. It’s an honour for me to have a more impactful hand in doing that. I’m very excited."
