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


Posted on 5/12/124 by Colin Vassallo



Two high-ranking WWE executives were let go from the company
this weekend, one of whom who had 26 years of service.

Steve Rubin, WWE’s Senior Director of TV Event Relations,
was released following 26 years with the company. He started
in 2001 as Manager, then was promoted to Senior Manager in
2015, before rising to Senior Director in 2023.

He was a liaison between WWE TV production, marketing, and
arenas to coordinate production logistics for every
televised event around the world. The news of his departure
was broken by Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful.

Michael Levin, WWE’s Vice President of International Live
Events, finds himself on the unemployed list after nearly
eight years with the company. He started in 2016 as Vice
President of International and then was promoted to his
current role in 2019. In 2020 he was also given the role of
GM Emerging Markets and was based in the London office.

Levin was just in France last weekend for Backlash and
actively posted about WWE-related stuff on his LinkedIn. His
departure was originally reported by PWInsider.com.
