Another Long Tenured WWE Employee Let Go From From Company Due To COVID-19

It looks as though another long tenured employee with WWE has lost his job due to COVID-19.

John Ruzicka, who served as the director for WWE’s Global Travel Management Project for the last 14 years, announced earlier this week that his tenure with the company has come to an end due to the effects of COVID-19.

Ruzicka stated:

Unfortunately, my 14-year tenure at WWE has officially come to an end due to the effects of COVID-19. It’s sad to see my colleagues and contacts from across the sports and entertainment industries have to suffer through this but we will overcome and make events again.

While at WWE, I’ve been blessed with the opportunity to travel and to see not just the country but the world (26 countries to be precise) and I couldn’t have ever imagine being able to say such a thing. Working events like WrestleMania and the first ever western entertainment event in Saudi Arabia have been experiences that will stay with me forever.

To my WWE colleagues (past and present), it’s truly been a pleasure working with everyone over the years. The personalities, the nicknames, the overnight international tour bus rides, and all the antics will never be forgotten. All I can say is thank you and I hope that I’ve had a positive effect on your life the way most of you had on mine.

I look forward to the next chapter and I’m open to new adventures so if anyone has an opportunity available, please let me know. For anyone who is in a similar situation, if I can help in any way (recommendation, introduction, advice, etc.) please don’t hesitate to ask.
