Chris Kaiser gone from WWE

According to reports from Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer and Mike Johnson of PWInsider, WWE have fired Executive Vice President of Television Chris Kaiser. He was let go as part of the latest cost-cutting measure as a result of the WWE-UFC merger under TKO Group Holdings that was completed in September 2023. 

Kaiser had been a part of WWE since 2015, joining the company after stints at TV Land and Spike TV. He was initially Senior Vice President of TV Production before he was promoted to Executive Vice President: WWE Television Operations and Production. Kaiser was then promoted again to simply EVP of Television in 2021. 

Kaiser's job role, according to his LinkedIn page was leading "the production, operations, and development of WWE's extensive portfolio of original content, delivered to a global audience across multiple platforms and partners."

There was reportedly some in WWE earlier this year who believed Kaiser deserved to be considered as Kevin Dunn's replacement. WWE ultimately opted to bring in Lee Fitting as WWE Head of Media & Production and the former ESPN producer's changes to Monday Night Raw, SmackDown, and WWE pay-per-views have been heavily praised so far.
