WWE BUSINESS: Executive Vice President of Live Events John Porco departs WWE

Posted on 3/21/124 by Colin Vassallo

PWInsider.com is reporting that WWE’s Executive Vice
President of Live Events, John Porco, has left the company.
His departure came last month.

Porco had been working for WWE for almost 25 years, starting
as PR Coordinator in 1999 before being promoted to Director
of Live Events Marking in 2002. In 2014 he was assigned the
role of Senior Director of Live Event Marketing before
becoming Vice President in 2016. In 2018, Porco was promoted
to SVP of Live Events and in 2022 got his final promotion as
EVP of Live Events.

Justin Scalise, who’s been with WWE for the past 17 years,
has been promoted to the role of EVP of Live Events in
Porco’s absence.

Scalise, just like Porco, rose through the ranks from Junior
Live Event Marketing Rep to Live Event Marketing Manager to
Senior Live Event Manager, Regional Director, Senior
Director, Vice President of Live Events and lately, Senior
Vice President of Live Events.

It’s unclear why Porco departed and it’s not known if this
was a personal decision or something else.
