WWE Re-Hire Their Vice-President Of Live Event Production
Coinciding with their return to the road
The former Vice President of Live Event Production in WWE has announced he is returning to the company.
Scott Smoot was released by WWE in September 2020 from his role as VP of Live Event Production, with the promotion citing necessary budget cuts in the wake of the COVID-19 Pandemic. However, nine months on, Smoot is returning to WWE and will once again take up the role.
Writing on his LinkedIn page, Smoot said: "Exciting and completely grateful to finally officially announce to all my return to WWE today!"
WWE is set to resume live events on July 16 with a 25-city summer tour, which will kick off with WWE SmackDown in Texas. The company has been unable to welcome fans or put on live events during the coronavirus pandemic, with WrestleMania 37 the only WWE show to permit a live audience attendance since last March.
Smoot originally joined WWE in January 2014. The executive worked for Major League Soccer team FC Cincinnati during his time away from WWE, taking on the role of Senior Director Of Creative And Match Presentation.
