List of WWE personnel

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

WWE is an American professional wrestling promotion based in Stamford, Connecticut.[1] WWE personnel consists of professional wrestlers, managers, play-by-play and color commentators, ring announcers, interviewers, referees, trainers, producers, script writers, and various other positions. Executives and board members are also listed.

WWE contracts typically range from developmental contracts to multi-year deals.[2] WWE describes most personnel as "independent contractors".[1] Personnel on the main roster appear on specific brands such as Raw and SmackDown while they can also appear on WWE's primary weekly television programming such as 205 Live, Main Event, and Total Divas as well as pay-per-views, and on untelevised live events.

Personnel from the NXT division appear on the television series of the same name, which airs online in the U.S. and on TV in select countries and on NXT branded live events. Personnel on the main roster may also wrestle in NXT and vice versa.

Personnel are organized below by their role in WWE. Their ring name is on the left and their real name is on the right. If someone is inactive for any reason, due to injury, suspension, not appearing in more than 30 days, or otherwise, that information is noted. WWE refers to all in-ring performers as "Superstars."
