WWE Hall of Famer Richard Fliehr, better known as Ric Flair, at a live event in Seoul, South Korea.

WWE is a sports entertainment company based in Stamford, Connecticut.[1] Former employees (family name letters D–H) in WWE consist of professional wrestlers, managers, play-by-play and color commentators, announcers, interviewers, referees, trainers, script writers, executives and board of directors.

WWE talents' contracts range from developmental contracts to multi-year deals.[2] They primarily appeared on WWE television programming, pay-per-view and live events and talent with developmental contracts appeared at NXT Wrestling (formerly Florida Championship Wrestling) or they appeared at WWE's former training facilities: Deep South Wrestling, Heartland Wrestling Association, International Wrestling Association, Memphis Championship Wrestling or Ohio Valley Wrestling. When talent is released of their contract it could be for a budget cut, the individual asking for their release, for personal reasons, time off from an injury or retirement. In some cases, talent has died while they were contracted, such as Owen Hart, Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit and Brian Pillman.

Those who made appearances without a contract and those who were released but are currently employed are not included.
